A reading from the book of Genesis
8:20 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of everyYay!
clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt
offerings on the altar.
8:21 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.
