Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 God blessed Noach and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the eretz. 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 eretz, 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.
