Genesis 9:3-13 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
3 Everything that lives and moves will be food for you.1 Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.2 4 "But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it.3 5 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.6 6 "Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed;7 for in the image of God8 has God made man. 7 As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it."9 8 Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him: 9 "I now establish my covenant with you10 and with your descendants after you 10 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. 11 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" 12 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:15 13 I have set my rainbow16 in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
