Bible: Genesis 9:9-17

9:9 Look! I now confirm 1  my covenant with you and your descendants after you 2  9:10 and with every living creature that is with you, including the birds, the domestic animals, and every living creature of the earth with you, all those that came out of the ark with you – every living creature of the earth. 3  9:11 I confirm 4  my covenant with you: Never again will all living things 5  be wiped out 6  by the waters of a flood; 7  never again will a flood destroy the earth.”

9:12 And God said, “This is the guarantee 8  of the covenant I am making 9  with you 10  and every living creature with you, a covenant 11  for all subsequent 12  generations: 9:13 I will place 13  my rainbow 14  in the clouds, and it will become 15  a guarantee of the covenant between me and the earth. 9:14 Whenever 16  I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 9:15 then I will remember my covenant with you 17  and with all living creatures of all kinds. 18  Never again will the waters become a flood and destroy 19  all living things. 20  9:16 When the rainbow is in the clouds, I will notice it and remember 21  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 22  that are on the earth.”
