“While the earth continues to exist, planting time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night will not cease. I will place my rainbow in the clouds, and it will become a guarantee of the covenant between me and the earth. When the rainbow is in the clouds, I will notice it and remember the perpetual covenant between me and all living things that are on the earth.” ~ Genesis 8:22, 9:13,16a, 17b
