Berĕshith (Genesis) 9

9
1And Elohim blessed Noaḥ and his sons, and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase, and fill the earth.
2“And the fear of you and the dread of you is on every beast of the earth, on every bird of the heavens, on all that creeps on the ground, and on all the fish of the sea – into your hand they have been given.
3“Every creeping creature that lives is food for you. I have given you all, as I gave the green plants.
4“But do not eat flesh with its life, its blood.
5“But only your blood for your lives I require, from the hand of every beast I require it, and from the hand of man. From the hand of every man’s brother I require the life of man.
6“Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood is shed, for in the image of Elohim has He made man.
7“As for you, be fruitful and increase, bring forth teemingly in the earth and increase in it.”
8And Elohim spoke to Noaḥ and to his sons with him, saying,
9“And I, see, I establish My covenant with you and with your seed after you,
10and with every living being that is with you: of the birds, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you, of all that go out of the ark, every beast of the earth.
11“And I shall establish My covenant with you, and never again is all flesh cut off by the waters of the flood, and never again is there a flood to destroy the earth.”
12And Elohim said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living being that is with you, for all generations to come:
13“I shall set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.
14“And it shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud,
15and I shall remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living being of all flesh, and never again let the waters become a flood to destroy all flesh.
16“And the rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I shall see it, to remember the everlasting covenant between Elohim and every living being of all flesh that is on the earth.
17And Elohim said to Noaḥ, “This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is on the earth.”
18And the sons of Noaḥ who went out of the ark were Shĕm and Ḥam and Yapheth. And Ḥam was the father of Kena‛an.
19These three were the sons of Noaḥ, and all the earth was overspread from them.
20And Noaḥ, a man of the soil, began and planted a vineyard.
21And he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent.
22And Ḥam, the father of Kena‛an, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.
23So Shĕm and Yapheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father, but their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness.
24And Noaḥ awoke from his wine, and he knew what his younger son had done to him,
25and he said, “Cursed is Kena‛an, let him become a servant of servants to his brothers.”
26And he said, “Blessed be יהוה, the Elohim of Shĕm, and let Kena‛an become his servant.
27“Let Elohim enlarge Yapheth, and let him dwell in the tents of Shĕm. And let Kena‛an become his servant.”
28And Noaḥ lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.
29So all the days of Noaḥ were nine hundred and fifty years, and he died.

1God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, and replenish the earth. 2The fear of you and the dread of you will be on every animal of the earth, and on every bird of the sky. Everything that moves along the ground, and all the fish of the sea, are delivered into your hand. 3Every moving thing that lives will be food for you. As I gave you the green herb, I have given everything to you. 4But flesh with its life, that is, its blood, you shall not eat. 5I will surely require accounting for your life’s blood. At the hand of every animal I will require it. At the hand of man, even at the hand of every man’s brother, I will require the life of man. 6Whoever sheds man’s blood, his blood will be shed by man, for God made man in his own image. 7Be fruitful and multiply. Increase abundantly in the earth, and multiply in it.”
8God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying, 9“As for me, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your offspring after you, 10and with every living creature that is with you: the birds, the livestock, and every animal of the earth with you, of all that go out of the ship, even every animal of the earth. 11I will establish my covenant with you: All flesh will not be cut off any more by the waters of the flood. There will never again be a flood to destroy the earth.” 12God said, “This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13I set my rainbow in the cloud, and it will be a sign of a covenant between me and the earth. 14When I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow will be seen in the cloud, 15I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh, and the waters will no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16The rainbow will be in the cloud. I will look at it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” 17God said to Noah, “This is the token of the covenant which I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.”
18The sons of Noah who went out from the ship were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Ham is the father of Canaan. 19These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated.
20Noah began to be a farmer, and planted a vineyard. 21He drank of the wine and got drunk. He was uncovered within his tent. 22Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. 23Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it on both their shoulders, went in backwards, and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were backwards, and they didn’t see their father’s nakedness. 24Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his youngest son had done to him. 25He said,
“Canaan is cursed.
He will be a servant of servants to his brothers.”
26He said,
“Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem.
Let Canaan be his servant.
27May God enlarge Japheth.
Let him dwell in the tents of Shem.
Let Canaan be his servant.”
28Noah lived three hundred and fifty years after the flood. 29All the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years, and then he died.
