The vital importance of the Covenant between man and God can remain in our consciousness through the spiritual forces released by the letters of this section. This Covenant is founded primarily upon the greatest power that humanity was given for revealing spiritual Light into this world and into our own lives that is, sexual relations between husband and wife. The Kabbalists teach us that because this action has the most potential and influence for revealing Light, it is given the most attention by the Evil Inclination and the negative forces that dwell in our midst.

Pasook 153. from the Zohar Sulam Commentary on Parasha Noach
וַהֲקִימוֹתִי אֶת בְּרִיתִי אִתָּךְ, אֲמַר ר' אֶלְעָזָר, מֵהָכָא קִיּוּמָא דִּבְרִית לְעֵילָא, כְּקִיּומָא דִּבְרִית לְתַתָּא, מַשְׁמַע דִּכְתִיב אִתָּךְ. וְאָמַר רָבִּי אֶלְעָזָר, מִכָּאן אוֹלִיפְנָא, דְּכַד זַכָּאִין אִינוּן בְּעָלְמָא, אִתְקַיַּים עָלְמָא לְעֵילָא וְתַתָּא.
"But with you will I establish My covenant" (Beresheet 6:18). Rabbi Elazar said that from this we learn that the establishment of the covenant above is equivalent to the establishment of that below. This is concluded from the term, "with you." Rabbi Elazar continued to say that from this we learn that when there are righteous in the world, the worlds above and below are firmly established.
when there are righteous people in the physical world then the physical world will not be destroyed.
Pasook 154. from the Zohar Sulam Commentary on Parasha Noach
אָמַר רָבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן מִלָּה סְתִים אִיהוּ, כַּד אִתְעֲרוּתָא דִדְכוּרָא לְגַבֵּי נוּקְבָא, כַּד אִיהוּ מְקַנֵּי לָהּ. תָּא חֲזֵי, רָזָא דְמִלָּה, כַּד צַדִּיקָא אִיהוּ בְּעָלְמָא, מִיָּד שְׁכִינְתָּא לָא אִתְעֲדִיאַת מִנֵּיהּ, וְתֵיאוּבְתָּא דִּילָהּ בֵּיהּ, כְּדֵין תֵּיאוּבְתָּא דִלְעֵילָא לְגַבָּהּ בִּרְחִימוּ, כְּתֵיאוּבְתָּא דִדְכוּרָא לְנוּקְבֵיהּ, כַּד אִיהוּ מְקַנֵּי לָהּ, וְעַל דָּא וַהֲקִימוֹתִי אֶת בְּרִיתִי אִתָּךְ. אִתְעַר תֵּיאוֹבְתָּא בְּגִינָךְ. כְּגַוְונָא דָא וְאֶת בְּרִיתִי אָקִים אֶת יִצְחָק.
Rabbi Shimon said that this is a hidden matter, because the arousal of the male to the female happens when he feels jealousy toward her. Come and behold: When there is a righteous person in the world, the Shechinah immediately attaches Herself to him and never leaves him. And She therefore desires him. The upper desire is then aroused toward Her with love that is similar to the desire of a man for a woman when he feels jealousy toward her. That is why it is written: "But with you will I establish My covenant." THIS MEANS THAT My desire is aroused because of you. The verse, "My covenant will I establish with Isaac" (Beresheet 17:21), has a similar meaning that it is because of Isaac, as by Noah.
In this pasuk jealousy is being used to represent the desire to receive.
Pasook 155. from the Zohar Sulam Commentary on Parasha Noach
וַהֲקִימוֹתִי אֶת בְּרִיתִי אִתָּךְ, לְמֶהֱוֵי אָת בְּרִיתִי בְּעָלְמָא, וּלְבָתַר וּבָאתָ אֶל הַתֵּיבָה, דְּאִלְמָלֵא לָאו אִיהוּ צַדִּיק, לָא יֵיעוֹל לְתֵיבוּתָא, דְּהָא לָא אִתְחַבַּר לַתֵּיבָה, בַּר צַדִּיק, וּבְגִינֵי כָךְ, וּבָאתָ אֶל הַתֵּיבָה, וְהָא אִתְּמָר.
"But with you will I establish My covenant," MEANS THAT you shall be My covenant in the world. And after that, "and you shall come into the ark." Because had he not been righteous, he would not have entered the ark, as only a righteous man may be connected with the ark. That is why it is written: "you shall come into the ark," after it has been stated that "With you will I establish My covenant."
The pasuk is clear as written.
Pasook 156. from the Zohar Sulam Commentary on Parasha Noach
אֲמַר רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר, בְּכָל זִמְנָא, דִּבְנֵי נָשָׁא, יִתְאַחֲדוּן בִּבְרִית דָּא, וְלָא יִשְׁבְּקוּן לֵיהּ, לֵית עַם וְלִישָׁן בְּעָלְמָא, דְּיֵיכוֹל לְאַבְאָשָׁא לוֹן, וְנֹחַ אַתְקֵיף בִּבְרִית דָּא, וְנָטַר לֵיהּ, בְּגִינֵי כָךְ, קֻדְשָׁא בְּרִיךְ הוּא נָטַר לֵיהּ. וְכָל בְּנֵי דָרֵיהּ לָא נָטְרוּ לֵיהּ, בְּגִין כָּךְ קֻדְשָׁא בְּרִיךְ הוּא אַעֲבַר לוֹן מֵעָלְמָא, וְהָא אִתְּמָר, בְּהַהוּא חוֹבָא מַמָּשׁ, דְּאִינוּן חָאבוּ, בְּהַהוּא גַוְונָא אִתְמְחוּן מֵעָלְמָא.
Rabbi Elazar said that as long as people hold on to the covenant, no nation nor tongue in the world can harm them. And because Noah kept and protected the Covenant, the Holy One, blessed be He, protected him. But the rest of his generation did not observe the covenant, so the Holy One, blessed be He, removed them from the world. And it has been said that in the same way that they sinned, they were also erased from the world.
The people of the generation wasted seed which is expelling liquid so they died from warm or boiling liquid representing their inability to control their lusts.
