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 (A)the pleasing aroma, the Lord said in his heart, “I will never again (B)curse[a] the ground because of man, for (C)the intention of man's heart is evil from his youth. (D)Neither will I ever again strike down every living creature as I have done. 22 (E)While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, (F)day and night, shall not cease.”

And God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, (G)“Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.
