Bible: Genesis 9:11-17

9:11 I confirm 1  my covenant with you: Never again will all living things 2  be wiped out 3  by the waters of a flood; 4  never again will a flood destroy the earth.”

9:12 And God said, “This is the guarantee 5  of the covenant I am making 6  with you 7  and every living creature with you, a covenant 8  for all subsequent 9  generations: 9:13 I will place 10  my rainbow 11  in the clouds, and it will become 12  a guarantee of the covenant between me and the earth. 9:14 Whenever 13  I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 9:15 then I will remember my covenant with you 14  and with all living creatures of all kinds. 15  Never again will the waters become a flood and destroy 16  all living things. 17  9:16 When the rainbow is in the clouds, I will notice it and remember 18  the perpetual covenant between God and all living creatures of all kinds that are on the earth.”

9:17 So God said to Noah, “This is the guarantee of the covenant that I am confirming between me and all living things 19  that are on the earth.”
