Genesis 8:15-22

15Then God said to Noah, 16Go out from the ark a  you and your wife, and your sons and your sonswives with you. 17Bring out with you every living thing that is with you of all fleshbirds and animals and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth—that they may swarm on the earth, and b  be fruitful and multiply on the earth.” 18So Noah went out, and his sons and his wife and his sonswives with him. 19Every beast, every creeping thing, and every bird, everything that moves on the earth, went out by families from the ark.

God’s Covenant with Noah

20Then Noah built an altar to the  Lord and took some of every clean animal and some of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21And when the  Lord smelled c  the pleasing aroma, the  Lord said in his heart, “I will never again d  curse
Or dishonor
the ground because of man, for f  the intention of man’s heart is evil from his youth. g  Neither will I ever again strike down every living creature as I have done.
22 h  While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter i  day and night, shall not cease.”
