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 man's brother will I require the nefesh haAdam. 6Shofech dahm (one who sheddeth man's 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'shachat (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'shachat (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.

Genesis 9

God’s Promise to Noah
1So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: #Gen. 1:28, 29; 8:17; 9:7, 19; 10:32“Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth. 2#Gen. 1:26, 28; Ps. 8:6And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be on every beast of the earth, on every bird of the air, on all that move on the earth, and on all the fish of the sea. They are given into your hand. 3#Deut. 12:15; 14:3, 9, 11; Acts 10:12, 13Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you #Rom. 14:14, 20; 1 Cor. 10:23, 26; Col. 2:16; (1 Tim. 4:3, 4)all things, even as the #Gen. 1:29green herbs. 4#Lev. 7:26; 17:10–16; 19:26; Deut. 12:16, 23; 15:23; 1 Sam. 14:33, 34; Acts 15:20, 29But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood. 5Surely for your lifeblood I will demand a reckoning; #Ex. 21:28from the hand of every beast I will require it, and #Gen. 4:9, 10; Ps. 9:12from the hand of man. From the hand of every #Acts 17:26man’s brother I will require the life of man.
6“Whoever #Ex. 21:12–14; Lev. 24:17; Num. 35:33; Matt. 26:52sheds man’s blood,
By man his blood shall be shed;
#Gen. 1:26, 27For in the image of God
He made man.
7And as for you, #Gen. 9:1, 19be fruitful and multiply;
Bring forth abundantly in the earth
And multiply in it.”
8Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying: 9“And as for Me, #Gen. 6:18behold, I establish #Is. 54:9My covenant with you and with your descendants after you, 10#Ps. 145:9and with every living creature that is with you: the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you, of all that go out of the ark, every beast of the earth. 11Thus #Gen. 8:21; Is. 54:9I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.”
12And God said: #Gen. 9:13, 17; 17:11“This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13I set #Ezek. 1:28; Rev. 4:3My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. 14It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; 15and #Lev. 26:42, 45; Deut. 7:9; Ezek. 16:60I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember #Gen. 17:13, 19; 2 Sam. 23:5; Is. 55:3; Jer. 32:40; Heb. 13:20the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” 17And God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth.”
Noah and His Sons
18Now the sons of Noah who went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. #Gen. 9:25–27; 10:6And Ham was the father of Canaan. 19#Gen. 5:32These three were the sons of Noah, #Gen. 9:1, 7; 10:32; 1 Chr. 1:4and from these the whole earth was populated.
20And Noah began to be #Gen. 3:19, 23; 4:2; Prov. 12:11; Jer. 31:24a farmer, and he planted a vineyard. 21Then he drank of the wine #Prov. 20:1; Eph. 5:18and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent. 22And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. 23#Ex. 20:12; Gal. 6:1But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness.
24So Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him. 25Then he said:
#Deut. 27:16; Josh. 9:23, 27“Cursed be Canaan;
A #Josh. 9:23; 1 Kin. 9:20, 21servant of servants
He shall be to his brethren.”
26And he said:
#Gen. 14:20; 24:27; Ps. 144:15; Heb. 11:16“Blessed be the Lord,
The God of Shem,
And may Canaan be his servant.
27May God #Gen. 10:2–5; 39:3; Is. 66:19enlarge Japheth,
#Luke 3:36; John 1:14; Eph. 2:13, 14; 3:6And may he dwell in the tents of Shem;
And may Canaan be his servant.”
28And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years. 29So all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years; and he died.
