God blessed Noah and his sons and said, "Have many children, so that your descendants will live all over the earth. 12
All the animals, birds, and fish will live in fear of you. They are all placed under your power.
Now you can eat them, as well as green plants; I give them all to you for food.
The one thing you must not eat is meat with blood still in it; I forbid this because the life is in the blood. 25
If anyone takes human life, he will be punished. I will punish with death any animal that takes a human life.
Human beings were made like God, so whoever murders one of them will be killed by someone else. 3
