Genesis 9:1-10 (The Message)

View In My Bible
1 God blessed Noah and his sons: He said, "Prosper! Reproduce! Fill the Earth! 2 Every living creature - birds, animals, fish - will fall under your spell and be afraid of you. You're responsible for them. 3 All living creatures are yours for food; just as I gave you the plants, now I give you everything else. 4 Except for meat with its lifeblood still in it - don't eat that. 5 "But your own lifeblood I will avenge; I will avenge it against both animals and other humans. 6 Whoever sheds human blood, by humans let his blood be shed, Because God made humans in his image reflecting God's very nature. 7 You're here to bear fruit, reproduce, lavish life on the Earth, live bountifully!" 8 Then God spoke to Noah and his sons: 9 "I'm setting up my covenant with you including your children who will come after you, 10 along with everything alive around you - birds, farm animals, wild animals - that came out of the ship with you.
