Everything that lives and moves will be food for you.1 Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.24
"But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it.35
And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting.4 I will demand an accounting from every animal.5 And from each man, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of his fellow man.66
"Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed;7 for in the image of God8 has God made man.
As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it."98
Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him:
"I now establish my covenant with you10 and with your descendants after you
and with every living creature that was with you--the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ark with you--every living creature on earth.
I establish my covenant11 with you:12 Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.13"
And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant14 I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come:1513
I have set my rainbow16 in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
