Genesis 9

9
The New Beginning
1Then God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, “Have many children; grow in number and fill the earth. 2Every animal on earth, every bird in the sky, every animal that crawls on the ground, and every fish in the sea will respect and fear you. I have given them to you.
3“Everything that moves, everything that is alive, is yours for food. Earlier I gave you the green plants, but now I give you everything for food. 4But you must not eat meat that still has blood in it, because blood gives life. 5I will demand blood for life. I will demand the life of any animal that kills a person, and I will demand the life of anyone who takes another person’s life.
6“Whoever kills a human being
will be killed by a human being,
because God made humans
in his own image.
7“As for you, Noah, I want you and your family to have many children, to grow in number on the earth, and to become many.”
8Then God said to Noah and his sons, 9“Now I am making my agreement with you and your people who will live after you, 10and with every living thing that is with you—the birds, the tame and the wild animals, and with everything that came out of the boat with you—with every living thing on earth. 11I make this agreement with you: I will never again destroy all living things by a flood. A flood will never again destroy the earth.”
12And God said, “This is the sign of the agreement between me and you and every living creature that is with you. 13I am putting my rainbow in the clouds as the sign of the agreement between me and the earth. 14When I bring clouds over the earth and a rainbow appears in them, 15I will remember my agreement between me and you and every living thing. Floods will never again destroy all life on the earth. 16When the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and I will remember the agreement that continues forever between me and every living thing on the earth.”
17So God said to Noah, “The rainbow is a sign of the agreement that I made with all living things on earth.”
Noah and His Sons
18The sons of Noah who came out of the boat with him were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. (Ham was the father of Canaan.) 19These three men were Noah’s sons, and all the people on earth came from these three sons.
20Noah became a farmer and planted a vineyard. 21When he drank wine made from his grapes, he became drunk and lay naked in his tent. 22Ham, the father of Canaan, looked at his naked father and told his brothers outside. 23Then Shem and Japheth got a coat and, carrying it on both their shoulders, they walked backwards into the tent and covered their father. They turned their faces away so that they did not see their father’s nakedness.
24Noah was sleeping because of the wine. When he woke up and learned what his youngest son, Ham, had done to him, 25he said,
“May there be a curse on Canaan!
May he be the lowest slave to his brothers.”
26Noah also said,
“May the Lord, the God of Shem, be praised!
May Canaan be Shem’s slave.
27May God give more land to Japheth.
May Japheth live in Shem’s tents,
and may Canaan be their slave.”
28After the flood Noah lived 350 years. 29He lived a total of 950 years, and then he died.

1And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) Noach (Rest, Consolation) and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
2And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moves [upon] the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
3Every moving thing that lives shall be meat for youi; even as the green herb have I given youi all things.
4But flesh with the life thereof, [which is] the blood thereof, shall youf not eat.
5And surely your2sf blood of your2sf lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man.
6Whoso sheds man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] made He man.
7And youf, be youf fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply in it.
8And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] spoke unto Noach (Rest, Consolation), and to his sons with him, saying,
9And I, behold, I establish my covenant with youf, and with your seed after you;
10And with every living creature that [is] with youf, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with youf; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.
11And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there anymore be a flood to destroy the earth.
12And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said, This [is] the token of the covenant which I make between me and youf and every living creature that [is] with you, for perpetual generations:
13I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
14And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
15And I will remember my covenant, which [is] between me and youf and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
16And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] and every living creature of all flesh that [is] upon the earth.
17And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said unto Noach (Rest, Consolation), This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.
18And the sons of Noach (Rest, Consolation), that went forth of the ark, were Shem (name, renown (great reputation; being well-known)), and Ham (hot, heat, brown), and Yefet (enlarged; fair; persuading): and Ham (hot, heat, brown) is the father of Kena’an (merchant; trader; or that humbles and subdues).
19These [are] the three sons of Noach (Rest, Consolation): and of them was the whole earth overspread.
20And Noach (Rest, Consolation) began [to be] an farmer, and he planted a vineyard:
21And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
22And Ham (hot, heat, brown), the father of Kena’an (merchant; trader; or that humbles and subdues), saw the nakedness [had relations with his father’s wife] of his father, and told his two brethren without.
23And Shem (name, renown (great reputation; being well-known)) and Yefet (enlarged; fair) took a garment, and laid [it] upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces [were] backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness.
24And Noach (Rest, Consolation) awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
25And he said, Cursed be Kena’an (merchant; trader; or that humbles and subdues); a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
26And he said, Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) [be] the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] of Shem (name, renown (great reputation; being well-known)); and Kena’an (merchant; trader; or that humbles and subdues) shall be his servant.
27God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] shall enlarge Yefet (enlarged; fair; persuading), and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem (name, renown (great reputation; being well-known)); and Kena’an (merchant; trader; or that humbles and subdues) shall be his servant.
28And Noach (Rest, Consolation) lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.
29And all the days of Noach (Rest, Consolation) were nine hundred and fifty years: and he died.
