And God blesseth Noah, and his sons, and saith to them, `Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth;
and your fear and your dread is on every beast of the earth, and on every fowl of the heavens, on all that creepeth on the ground, and on all fishes of the sea -- into your hand they have been given.
Every creeping thing that is alive, to you it is for food; as the green herb I have given to you the whole;
only flesh in its life -- its blood -- ye do not eat.
`And only your blood for your lives do I require; from the hand of every living thing I require it, and from the hand of man, from the hand of every man's brother I require the life of man;
whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man is his blood shed: for in the image of God hath He made man.
And ye, be fruitful and multiply, teem in the earth, and multiply in it.'
