Genesis 9

9
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.

God Blesses Noah and His Sons
1God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, “Be fertile, increase in number, and fill the earth. 2All the wild animals and all the birds will fear you and be terrified of you. Every creature that crawls on the ground and all the fish in the sea have been put under your control. 3Everything that lives and moves will be your food. I gave you green plants as food; I now give you everything else.
4“But you are not to eat meat with blood in it. (Blood is life.) 5In addition, I will demand your blood for your life. I will demand it from any animal or from any person. I will demand the life of any person ⌞who kills⌟ another person.
6Whoever sheds human blood,
by humans his blood will be shed,
because in the image of God, God made humans.
7Be fertile, and increase in number. Spread over the earth, and increase.”
God’s Promise—the Sign of the Rainbow
8God also said to Noah and his sons, 9“I am going to make my promise  #9:9 Or “covenant.” to you, your descendants, 10and every living being that is with you—birds, domestic animals, and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ship—every living thing on earth. 11I am making my promise to you. Never again will all life be killed by floodwaters. Never again will there be a flood that destroys the earth.”
12God said, “This is the sign of the promise I am giving to you and every living being that is with you for generations to come. 13I will put my rainbow in the clouds to be a sign of my promise to the earth. 14Whenever I form clouds over the earth, a rainbow will appear in the clouds. 15Then I will remember my promise to you and every living animal. Never again will water become a flood to destroy all life. 16Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember my everlasting promise to every living animal on earth.”
17So God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the promise I am making to all life on earth.”
Noah Curses Canaan but Blesses Shem and Japheth
18Noah’s sons, who came out of the ship, were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 19These were Noah’s three sons. From them the whole earth was populated. Ham was the father of Canaan.#9:19 The second part of verse 18 (in Hebrew) has been placed just after verse 19 to express the complex Hebrew sentence structure more clearly in English.
20Noah, a farmer, was the first person to plant a vineyard. 21He drank some wine, got drunk, and lay naked inside his tent. 22Ham, father of Canaan, saw his father naked. So he went outside and told his two brothers.
23Shem and Japheth took a blanket and laid it over their shoulders. Then they walked in backwards and covered their father’s naked body. They turned their faces away so that they didn’t see their father naked.
24When Noah sobered up, he found out what his youngest son had done to him. 25So he said,
“Canaan is cursed!
He will be the lowest slave to his brothers.
26Praise the Lord, the God of Shem!
Canaan will be his slave.
27May God expand the territory of Japheth.#9:27 There is a play on words here between the Hebrew yapht (May God expand) and yepheth (Japheth).
May he live in the tents of Shem.
Canaan will be his slave.”
28Noah lived 350 years after the flood. 29Noah lived a total of 950 years; then he died.
