And GodblessedNoah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful , and multiply , and replenish the earth.2
And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered .
Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the greenherb have I given you all things.
4Butflesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat .
And surely your blood of your lives will I require ; at the hand of every beast will I require it , and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man'sbrother will I require the life of man.6
Whoso sheddethman'sblood, by man shall his blood be shed : for in the image of Godmade he man.7
And you, be ye fruitful , and multiply ; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
