8 And God said to Noah and to his sons with him saying, 9 "And behold! I myself am establishing my covenant with you (pl) and your seed after you (pl) 10 and with all the souls of the living things that (are) with you (pl), in the birds, in the wild animals, and in all the living things of the earth with you (pl), from all going out of the ark to all the living things of the earth. 11 I will establish my covenant with you (pl) and I will not cut off all flesh again from the flood and it will not happen again a flood to destroy the land. 12 And God said, "This (is) the sign of the covenant that I am giving between me and between you (pl) and between all living souls that (are) with you (pl) for all generations. 13 My bow I set in a cloud and it will be as a sign of (the) covenant between me and between the earth. 14 It will be when I bring a cloud on the earth and the bow will be seen in cloud. 15 And I will remember my covenant that (is) between me and between you (pl) and between all living souls in all flesh and it will not happen again the waters as flood to destroy all flesh. 16 The bow will be in a cloud and I will see to remember (the) covenant forever between God and between all living souls in all flesh that (is) on the earth. 17 And God said to Noah, "This (is) the sign of the covenant that I established between me and between all flesh that (is) on the earth."
