She, however, had an Egyptian slave-girl whose name was Hagar. ” And Abram listened to the voice of Sara.

E. e. ” 12 And the Lord God said to Noe, “This is the sign of the covenant, whichb I give, between me and you and between every living creature that is with you, for everlasting generations: 13 I set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a covenant sign between me and the earth. 14 And it shall be that when I gather clouds over the earth, my bow shall be seen in the cloud, 15 and I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and between every living creature among all flesh, and the water shall no more become a flood so as to wipe out all flesh.
