God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, "Be fertile, increase in number, and fill the earth.
All the wild animals and all the birds will fear you and be terrified of you. Every creature that crawls on the ground and all the fish in the sea have been put under your control.
Everything that lives and moves will be your food. I gave you green plants as food; I now give you everything else.
"But you are not to eat meat with blood in it. (Blood is life.)
In addition, I will demand your blood for your life. I will demand it from any animal or from any person. I will demand the life of any person [who kills] another person.
Whoever sheds human blood, by humans his blood will be shed, because in the image of God, God made humans.
