After the terror of the flood, God remembered Noah and promised to protect Him and care for Him. The promise of v. 21-22 still stands for us, doesn’t it?

Genesis 8:15–9:3

15 Then God said to Noah, 16 “Go out from the ark, you and your wife, and your sons and your sons’ wives with you. 17 Bring out with you every living thing that is with you of all flesh—birds and animals and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth—that they may swarm on the earth, and be fruitful and multiply on the earth.” 18 So Noah went out, and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him. 19 Every 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

20 Then 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. 21 And when the LORD smelled the pleasing aroma, the LORD said in his heart, “I will never again curse1 the ground because of man, for the intention of man’s heart is evil from his youth. Neither will I ever again strike down every living creature as I have done. 22 While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.”

9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. The fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth and upon every bird of the heavens, upon everything that creeps on the ground and all the fish of the sea. Into your hand they are delivered. Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.

KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 8

     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)


(Alt. audio): Chapter: 9

     1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. 2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. 3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 17:
Oh Worship the King

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. Oh, worship the King 
All glorious above: 
Oh, gratefully sing 
His power and His love, 
Our Shield and Defender, 
The Ancient of Days, 
Pavilioned in splendor 
And girded with praise! 

2. Oh, tell of His might, 
Oh, sing of His grace, 
Whose robe is the light, 
Whose canopy space! 
His chariots of wrath 
The deep thunder-clouds form, 
And dark is His path 
On the wings of the storm. 

3. This earth, with its store 
Of wonders untold, 
Almighty, Thy power 
Hath founded of old, 
Hath stablished it fast 
By a changeless decree, 
And round it hath cast, 
Like a mantle, the sea. 

4. Thy bountiful care 
What tongues can recite? 
It breathes in the air, 
It shines in the light, 
It streams from the hills, 
It descends to the plain, 
And sweetly distills 
In the dew and the rain. 

5. Frail children of dust 
And feeble as frail, 
In Thee do we trust 
Nor find Thee to fail. 
Thy mercies, how tender, 
How firm to the end, 
Our maker, Defender, 
Redeemer, and Friend! 

6. O measureless Might, 
Ineffable Love, 
While angels delight 
To hymn Thee above, 
Thy humbler creation, 
Though feeble their lays, 
With true adoration 
Shall sing to Thy praise.
