God's Covenant With Noah

1 Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth.1 2 The fear and dread of you will fall on all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky, on every creature that moves along the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; they are given into your hands.2 3 Everything that lives and moves will be food for you.3 Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.4 4 "But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it.5 5 And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting.6 I will demand an accounting from every animal.7 And from each human being, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of another human being.8 6 "Whoever sheds human blood, by human beings shall their blood be shed;9 for in the image of God10 has God made humankind. 7 As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it."11
