Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And God blessed Noe and his sons, and said to them, Increase ye, and be ye multiplied, and fill ye 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 dread and trembling be on all [the] unreasonable beasts of the earth, and on all [the] birds of (the) heaven(s), with all things that be moved in (the) earth; all (the) fishes of the sea be given (in)to your hand. (let the fear of you, and trembling over you, be on all the unreasoning beasts of the earth, and on all the birds of the air, and on all the fishes of the sea; yea, let all the things that move on the earth, be given into your hands.) 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 And all thing which is moved and liveth shall be to you into meat; (now) I have given to you all things, as (I gave the) green worts (before), (And everything which liveth and moveth shall be food for you; yea, as I did with the green herbs before, now I give you all these things to eat,) 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 except that ye shall not eat flesh with the blood, 4 "But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it.
5 for I shall seek the blood of your lives, of the hand of all unreasonable beasts, and of the hand of man, of the hand of man, and of his brother, I shall seek the life of man. (for I shall seek justice for any spilt blood of your lives, from any unreasoning beast, and from any man, yea, from any man, and from any of his brothers, I shall seek their life if any of them take the life of someone.) 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 sheddeth out man's blood, his blood shall be shed; for man is made to the image of God (for man is made in the image of God). 6 "Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man.
