And God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, 1"Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.
2The fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth and upon every bird of the heavens, upon everything that creeps on the ground and all the fish of the sea. Into your hand they are delivered.
3Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And 4as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.
But you shall not eat flesh with its 5life, that is, its blood.
And for your lifeblood I will require a reckoning: 6from every beast I will require it and 7from man. From his fellow man I will require a reckoning for the life of man.
8"Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, 9for God made man in his own image.
And you, be fruitful and multiply, teem on the earth and multiply in it."
