The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said 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 let the fear of you and the dread of you be upon every animal of the earth, and upon all fowl of the heavens: upon all that moveth [on] the ground; and upon all the fishes of the sea: into your hand are they delivered. 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 liveth shall be food for you: as the green herb I give you everything. 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, the flesh with its life, its blood, ye shall not eat. 4 "But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it.
5 And indeed your blood, [the blood] of your lives, will I require: at the hand of every animal will I require it, and at the hand of Man, at the hand of each [the blood] of his brother, will 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 shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God he hath 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.
