Then God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, "Have many children; grow in number and fill the earth.
Every animal on earth, every bird in the sky, every animal that crawls on the ground, and every fish in the sea will respect and fear you. I have given them to you.
"Everything that moves, everything that is alive, is yours for food. Earlier I gave you the green plants, but now I give you everything for food.
But you must not eat meat that still has blood in it, because blood gives life.
I will demand blood for life. I will demand the life of any animal that kills a person, and I will demand the life of anyone who takes another person's life.
"Whoever kills a human being will be killed by a human being, because God made humans in his own image.
