I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
Read Chapter 9
George Leo Haydock
My rain bow. This had been from the beginning; but it was not before appointed for a sign that the earth should no more be destroyed by water. It is styled God's bow, on account of its beauty and grandeur. (Menochius) (Ecclesiasticus xliii. 12.)
"As the rain-bow, which makes its appearance in the clouds, borrows all its effulgence from the sun, so those only who acknowledge the glory of Christ in God's clouds, and do not seek their own glory, will escape destruction in the deluge "St. Augustine, contra Faust. ii. 21.
