God Spoke to the Survivors:


On my part,
I AM...

Establishing
My covenant
With you, and
Your descendants, and
Every living thing, and
The birds, and
The livestock, and
The wildlife.


I establish
My covenant
With you,
That never again
Will water decimate life on Earth,
That never again
Will a flood destroy the whole world.

This is the sign of
My covenant
With you, and
Every living thing, and
All future generations.

I have set a bow in the clouds,
An image of war and death
Made into an image of new life;
A sign of
My covenant
With the Earth.

When the clouds build,
And my bow is seen, 
I will remember
My covenant
With you, and
Every living thing,
And the water shall
Never again ravage
Creation.

When my bow
Is in the clouds,
I will remember
My covenant
With every living thing.

This is the sign of
My covenant
With all life on Earth.

A covenant spoken seven times.
A wholeness of my covenanting.
A completion and a perfection.

A sabbath sign.

(Genesis 9:8-17)
