God blessed Noach and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the eretz.
The fear of you and the dread of you will be on every animal of the eretz, and on every bird of the sky. Everything that the ground teems with, and all the fish of the sea are delivered into your hand.
Every moving thing that lives will be food for you. As the green herb, I have given everything to you.
But flesh with the life of it, the blood of it, you shall not eat.
I will surely require your blood of your lives. At the hand of every animal I will require it. At the hand of man, even at the hand of every man's brother, I will require the life of man.
Whoever sheds man's blood, by man will his blood be shed, for in the image of God made he man.
