Genesis 9

God Makes a Covenant With Noah
1Then God blessed Noah and his sons. He said to them, “Have children so that there are many of you. Fill the earth. 2All the land animals will be afraid of you. All the birds in the sky will be afraid of you. Every creature that moves along the ground will be afraid of you. So will every fish in the seas. Every living thing is put under your control. 3Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. I have already given you the green plants for food. Now I am giving you everything.
4“But you must not eat meat that still has blood in it. 5I will certainly hold someone accountable if you are murdered. I will even hold animals accountable if they kill you. I will also hold anyone accountable who murders another person.
6“Anyone who murders a human being
will be killed by a human being.
That is because I have made human beings
so that they are like me.
7Have children so that there will be many of you. Multiply and become many on the earth.”
8Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons who were with him. He said, 9“I am now making my covenant with you and with all your children who will be born after you. 10I am making it also with every living creature that was with you in the ark. I am making my covenant with the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals. I am making it with all the creatures that came out of the ark with you. In fact, I am making it with every living thing on earth. 11Here is my covenant I am making with you. The waters of a flood will never again destroy all life. A flood will never again destroy the earth.”
12God continued, “My covenant is between me and you and every living creature with you. It is a covenant for all time to come. Here is the sign of the covenant I am making. 13I have put my rainbow in the clouds. It will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14Sometimes when I bring clouds over the earth, a rainbow will appear in them. 15Then I will remember my covenant between me and you and every kind of living creature. The waters will never again become a flood to destroy all life. 16When the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it. I will remember that my covenant will last forever. It is a covenant between me and every kind of living creature on earth.”
17So God said to Noah, “The rainbow is the sign of my covenant. I have made my covenant between me and all life on earth.”
The Sons of Noah
18The sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth. Ham was the father of Canaan. 19The people who were scattered over the earth came from Noah’s three sons.
20Noah was a man who farmed the land. He decided to plant a field that produced grapes for making wine. 21When he drank some of the wine, it made him drunk. Then he lay down inside his tent without any clothes on. 22Ham saw his father naked. Then Ham, the father of Canaan, went outside and told his two brothers. 23But Shem and Japheth picked up a piece of clothing and laid it across their shoulders. Then they walked backward into the tent. They covered their father’s body. They turned their faces away because they didn’t want to see their father naked.
24Then Noah woke up from his sleep that was caused by the wine. He found out what his youngest son had done to him. 25He said,
“May a curse be put on Canaan!
He will be the lowest of slaves to his brothers.”
26Noah also said,
“May the Lord, the God of Shem, be praised.
May Canaan be the slave of Shem.
27May God add land to Japheth’s territory.
May Japheth live in the tents of Shem.
And may Canaan be the slave of Japheth.”
28After the flood Noah lived 350 years. 29Noah lived a total of 950 years. And then he died.

Bereshis 9

1Vayevarech Elohim et Noach and his banim, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish ha'aretz.
2And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of ha'aretz, and upon every bird of the air, upon all that moveth upon ha'adamah, and upon all the dagim of the yam; into your yad are they delivered.
3Every remes that liveth shall be food for you; even as the yarok esev (green plant) have I given you all.
4But basar with the nefesh thereof, which is the dahm thereof, shall ye not eat.
5And surely your dahm of your nefeshot will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the yad haAdam; at the hand of every manʼs brother will I require the nefesh haAdam.
6Shofech dahm (one who sheddeth manʼs blood), by man shall his dahm be shed; for in the tzelem Elohim made He man.
7And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly on ha'aretz, and multiply therein.
8And Elohim spoke unto Noach, and to his banim with him, saying,
9And I, hineni, I establish My brit (covenant) with you, and with your zera after you;
10And with kol nefesh that is with you, of the bird, of the behemah, and of every animal of ha'aretz with you; from kol yotzei hatevah (all that go out of the ark), to every creature of ha'aretz.
11And I will establish My brit (covenant) with you, neither shall kol basar yikaret (be cut off, violently killed) any more by the waters of the mabbul; neither shall there be any more mabbul l'shacheit (to destroy) ha'aretz.
12And Elohim said, This is the ot (sign) of the brit (covenant) which I make between Me and you and every nefesh chayyah (living creature) that is with you, for dorot olam (perpetual generations);
13I do set My keshet (bow) in the anan (cloud), and it shall be for an ot brit between Me and ha'aretz.
14And it shall come to pass, when I bring an anan over ha'aretz, that the keshet be'anan (rainbow) shall be seen;
15And I will remember My brit, which is between Me and you and kol nefesh chayyah of kol basar; and the waters shall no more become a mabbul (flood) l'shacheit (to destroy) kol basar.
16And the keshet shall be in the anan; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the brit olam between Elohim and kol nefesh chayyah of kol basar that is upon ha'aretz.
17And Elohim said unto Noach, This is the ot habrit, which I have established between Me and kol basar that is upon ha'aretz.
18And the bnei Noach, that went forth of the tevah, were Shem, and Cham, and Yephet; and Cham is the av of Kena'an (Canaan).
19Shloshah (Three) are the bnei Noach; and of them was the kol ha'aretz populated.
20And Noach began to be an ish ha'adamah (a man of the soil), and he planted a kerem (vineyard);
21And he drank of the yayin, and became shikker (intoxicated); and he lay uncovered inside his ohel.
22And Cham, the av of Kena'an, saw the erom (nakedness) of his av, and told his two achim on the outside.
23And Shem and Yephet took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and walked backward, and covered the erom of their av; and their faces were turned the other way, and they saw not the erom of their av.
24And Noach awoke from his yayin, and had da'as of what his ben katan had done unto him.
25And he said, Arur (cursed) be Kena'an; an eved of avadim shall he be unto his achim.
26And he said, Baruch Hashem Elohei Shem; and Kena'an shall be his eved.
27Elohim shall enlarge Yephet, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Kena'an shall be his eved.
28And Noach lived after the mabbul three hundred and fifty years.
29And all the days of Noach were nine hundred and fifty years; and he died.
