Covenant of the Rainbow

1 And God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, "1Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth. 2 "The fear of you and the terror of you will be on every beast of the earth and on every bird of the asky; with everything that creeps on the ground, and all the fish of the sea, into your hand they are given. 3 "Every moving thing that is alive shall be food for you; I give all to you, 2as I gave the green plant. 4 "Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, 3its blood. 5 "Surely I will require b4your lifeblood ; c5from every beast I will require it. And dfrom every man, efrom every man's brother I will require the life of man. 6 "6Whoever sheds man's blood, By man his blood shall be shed, For 7in the image of God He made man. 7 "As for you, 8be fruitful and multiply; fPopulate the earth abundantly and multiply in it." 8 Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying, 9 "Now behold, 9I Myself do establish My covenant with you, and with your gdescendants after you; 10 and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you; of all that comes out of the ark, even every beast of the earth. 11 "I establish My covenant with you; and all flesh shall 10never again be cut off by the water of the flood, 11neither shall there again be a flood to destroy the earth."
