Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And God blesseth Noah, and his sons, and saith to them, `Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth; 1 Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth.
2 and your fear and your dread is on every beast of the earth, and on every fowl of the heavens, on all that creepeth on the ground, and on all fishes of the sea -- into your hand they have been given. 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 creeping thing that is alive, to you it is for food; as the green herb I have given to you the whole; 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 only flesh in its life -- its blood -- ye do not eat. 4 "But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it.
5 `And only your blood for your lives do I require; from the hand of every living thing I require it, and from the hand of man, from the hand of every man's brother I 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 whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man is his blood shed: for in the image of God hath He made 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 And ye, be fruitful and multiply, teem 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 And God speaketh unto Noah, and unto his sons with him, saying, 8 Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him:
9 `And I, lo, I am establishing My covenant with you, and with your seed after you, 9 "I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you
10 and with every living creature which [is] with you, among fowl, among cattle, and among every beast of the earth with you, from all who are going out of the ark -- to every beast 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 And I have established My covenant with you, and all flesh is not any more cut off by waters of a deluge, and there is not any more a deluge 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 And God saith, `This is a token of the covenant which I am giving between Me and you, and every living creature that [is] with you, to generations age-during; 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 My bow I have given in the cloud, and it hath been for a token 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 and it hath come to pass (in My sending a cloud over the earth) that the bow hath been seen in the cloud, 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds,
15 and I have remembered My covenant which is between Me and you, and every living creature among all flesh, and the waters become no more a deluge 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 and the bow hath been in the cloud, and I have seen it -- to remember the covenant age-during between God and every living creature among all flesh which [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 And God saith unto Noah, `This [is] a token of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that [is] upon 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 And the sons of Noah who are going out of the ark are Shem, and Ham, and Japheth; and Ham is 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 [are] sons of Noah, and from these hath all the earth been overspread. 19 These were the three sons of Noah, and from them came the people who were scattered over the earth.
20 And Noah remaineth a man of the ground, and planteth a vineyard, 20 Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard.
21 and drinketh of the wine, and is drunken, and uncovereth himself in the midst of the tent. 21 When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent.
22 And Ham, father of Canaan, seeth the nakedness of his father, and declareth to his two brethren without. 22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness and told his two brothers outside.
23 And Shem taketh -- Japheth also -- the garment, and they place on the shoulder of them both, and go backward, and cover the nakedness of their father; and their faces [are] backward, and their father's nakedness they have not seen. 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 And Noah awaketh from his wine, and knoweth that which his young son hath done to him, 24 When Noah awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him,
25 and saith: `Cursed [is] Canaan, Servant of servants he is to his brethren.' 25 he said, "Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves will he be to his brothers."
26 And he saith: `Blessed of Jehovah my God [is] Shem, And Canaan is servant to him. 26 He also said, "Blessed be the LORD, the God of Shem! May Canaan be the slave of Shem.
27 God doth give beauty to Japheth, And he dwelleth in tents of Shem, And Canaan is servant to him.' 27 May God extend the territory of Japheth; may Japheth live in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be his slave."
28 And Noah liveth after the deluge three hundred and fifty years; 28 After the flood Noah lived 350 years.
29 and all the days of Noah are nine hundred and fifty years, and he dieth. 29 Altogether, Noah lived 950 years, and then he died.
