Covenant of the Rainbow

1 And God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, "1Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth. 2 "The fear of you and the terror of you will be on every beast of the earth and on every bird of the asky; with everything that creeps on the ground, and all the fish of the sea, into your hand they are given. 3 "Every moving thing that is alive shall be food for you; I give all to you, 2as I gave the green plant. 4 "Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, 3its blood. 5 "Surely I will require b4your lifeblood ; c5from every beast I will require it. And dfrom every man, efrom every man's brother I will require the life of man. 6 "6Whoever sheds man's blood, By man his blood shall be shed, For 7in the image of God He made man. 7 "As for you, 8be fruitful and multiply; fPopulate the earth abundantly and multiply in it."
