Renewal and Rainbows: God’s Covenant with Noah

“God puts his rainbow in the sky so that he will see it and remember. I suspect that would be very encouraging to Noah because that is how it began. When God created the world, the refrain went ‘and God saw that it  was good’ (emphas­is mine [DM]). But in the days of Noah God saw that the earth had become cor­rupt and man had corrup­ted his way (6:12). In this new world, God sees the sign of his covenant, and he refrains from submer­ging the world under wa­ter.”
(Daniel McManigal, Encountering Christ in the Covenants: An Intro­duction to Covenant Theology, Monergism Books, 2013, p. 46.)
