1 God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. 1 Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth.
2 The fear of you and the dread of you will be on every animal of the earth, 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. 2 The fear and dread of you will fall upon all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air, upon every creature that moves along the ground, and upon all the fish of the sea; they are given into your hands.
3 Every moving thing that lives will be food for you. As the green herb, I have given everything to you. 3 Everything that lives and moves will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.
4 But flesh with the life of it, the blood of it, you shall not eat. 4 "But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it.
5 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. 5 And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from every animal. And from each man, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of his fellow man.
6 Whoever sheds man's blood, by man will his blood be shed, for in the image of God made he man. 6 "Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man.
7 Be fruitful, and multiply. Bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply in it." 7 As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it."
8 God spoke to Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, 8 Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him:
9 "As for me, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your offspring after you, 9 "I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you
10 and with every living creature that is with you: the birds, the cattle, and every animal of the earth with you. Of all that go out of the ark, even every animal of the earth. 10 and with every living creature that was with you--the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ark with you--every living creature on earth.
11 I will establish my covenant with you; neither will all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of the flood; neither will there any more be a flood to destroy the earth." 11 I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth."
12 God said, "This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 12 And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come:
13 I set my rainbow in the cloud, and it will be for a sign of a covenant between me and the earth. 13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
14 It will happen, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow will be seen in the cloud, 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds,
15 and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh, and the waters will no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.
16 The rainbow will be in the cloud. I will look at it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth." 16 Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth."
17 God said to Noah, "This is the token of the covenant which I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth." 17 So God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth."
18 The sons of Noah who went forth from the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Ham is the father of Canaan. 18 The sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth. (Ham was the father of Canaan.)
19 These three were the sons of Noah, and from these, the whole earth was populated. 19 These were the three sons of Noah, and from them came the people who were scattered over the earth.
20 Noah began to be a farmer, and planted a vineyard. 20 Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard.
21 He drank of the wine, and got drunk. He was uncovered within his tent. 21 When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent.
22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. 22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness and told his two brothers outside.
23 Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it on both their shoulders, went in backwards, and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were backwards, and they didn't see their father's nakedness. 23 But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father's nakedness. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father's nakedness.
24 Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his youngest son had done to him. 24 When Noah awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him,
25 He said, "Cursed be Canaan; A servant of servants will he be to his brothers." 25 he said, "Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves will he be to his brothers."
26 He said, "Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Shem; Let Canaan be his servant. 26 He also said, "Blessed be the LORD, the God of Shem! May Canaan be the slave of Shem.
27 God enlarge Japheth, Let him dwell in the tents of Shem; Let Canaan be his servant." 27 May God extend the territory of Japheth; may Japheth live in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be his slave."
28 Noah lived three hundred fifty years after the flood. 28 After the flood Noah lived 350 years.
29 All the days of Noah were nine hundred fifty years, then he died. 29 Altogether, Noah lived 950 years, and then he died.
