Bible Term: Covenant

In a general sense, a covenant is a binding agreement or contract between two people.

In the Bible, covenant is sometimes used to describe an agreement between two people, though it’s more common use to describe an agreement, or promise, between God and mankind.

A biblical example of a covenant is that after the great flood, God promises to Noah that he will never again destroy the earth with a flood.
