Our Thanksgiving tables show us that God has still not broken the promise He made in v. 22.

ESV Text: Genesis 8:15-22



KJV Text:

The section starts at about 1:55 and ends at about 3:6

     15 And God spake unto Noah, saying, 16 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons’ wives with thee. 17 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth. 18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him: 19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.

     20 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. 22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.(KJV)

1. We praise Thee, O God, our Redeemer, Creator, 
In grateful devotion our tribute we bring; 
We lay it before Thee, We kneel and adore Thee, 
We bless Thy holy name, glad praises we sing. 

2. We worship Thee, God of our fathers, we bless Thee; 
Through life’s storm and tempest our Guide hast Thou been; 
When perils o’ertake us, Escape Thou wilt make us, 
And with Thy help, O Lord, our battles we win. 

3. With voices united our praises we offer, 
To Thee, great Jehovah, glad anthems we raise. 
Thy strong arm will guide us, Our God is beside us, 
To Thee, our great Redeemer, fore’er be praise.
