Psalm 102:16-23 and Genesis 9:1-13
16 And the Gentiles will fear your name, O Lord, and all the kings of the earth your glory.
17 For the Lord has built up Zion, and he will be seen in his glory.
18 He has noticed of the prayer of the humble, and he has not despised their petition.
19 Let these things be written in another generation, and the people who will be created will praise the Lord.
20 For he has gazed from his high sanctuary. From heaven, the Lord has beheld the earth.
21 So may he hear the groans of those in shackles, in order that he may release the sons of the slain.
22 So may they announce the name of the Lord in Zion and his praise in Jerusalem:
23 while the people convene, along with kings, in order that they may serve the Lord.
1 And God blessed Noah and his sons. And he said to them: "Increase, and multiply, and fill the earth.
2 And let the fear and trembling of you be upon all the animals of the earth, and upon all the birds of the air, along with all that moves across the earth. All the fish of the sea have been delivered into your hand.
3 And everything that moves and lives will be food for you. Just as with the edible plants, I have delivered them all to you,
4 except that flesh with blood you shall not eat.
5 For I will examine the blood of your lives at the hand of every beast. So also, at the hand of mankind, at the hand of each man and his brother, I will examine the life of mankind.
6 Whoever will shed human blood, his blood will be poured out. For man was indeed made to the image of God.
7 But as for you: increase and multiply, and go forth upon the earth and fulfill it."
8 To Noah and to his sons with him, God also said this:
9 "Behold, I will establish my covenant with you, and with your offspring after you,
10 and with every living soul that is with you: as much with the birds as with the cattle and all the animals of the earth that have gone forth from the ark, and with all the wild beasts of the earth.
11 I will establish my covenant with you, and no longer will all that is flesh be put to death by the waters of a great flood, and, henceforth, there will not be a great flood to utterly destroy the earth."
12 And God said: "This is the sign of the pact that I grant between me and you, and to every living soul that is with you, for perpetual generations.
13 I will place my arc in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the pact between myself and the earth.
