God blessed Noach and his sons and said to them, "Be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth.
The fear and dread of you will be upon every wild animal, every bird in the air, every creature populating the ground, and all the fish in the sea; they have been handed over to you.
Every moving thing that lives will be food for you; just as I gave you green plants before, so now I give you everything -
only flesh with its life, which is its blood, you are not to eat.
I will certainly demand an accounting for the blood of your lives: I will demand it from every animal and from every human being. I will demand from every human being an accounting for the life of his fellow human being.
Whoever sheds human blood, by a human being will his own blood be shed; for God made human beings in his image.
