Genesis 9

9
1And God blessed Noe and his sons. And he said to them: Increase and multiply, and fill the earth.
2And let the fear and dread of you be upon all the beasts of the earth, and upon all the fowls of the air, and all that move upon the earth: all the fishes of the sea are delivered into your hand.
3And every thing that moveth and liveth shall be meat for you: even as the green herbs have I delivered them all to you:
4Saving that flesh with blood you shall not eat.
5For I will require the blood of your lives at the hand of every beast, and at the hand of man. At the hand of every man, and of his brother, will I require the life of man.
6Whosoever shall shed man's blood, his blood shall be shed: for man was made to the image of God.
7But increase you and multiply:, and go upon the earth, and fill it.
8This also said God to Noe, and to his sons with him:
9Behold, I will establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you.
10And with every living soul that is with you, as well in all birds as in cattle and beasts of the earth, that are come forth out of the ark: and in all the beasts of the earth.
11I will establish my covenant with you; and all flesh shall be no more destroyed with the waters of a flood: neither shall there be from henceforth a flood to waste the earth.
12And God said: This is the sign of the covenant which I will give between me and you, and to every living soul that is with you, for perpetual generations.
13I will set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be the sign of a covenant between me, and between the earth.
14And when I shall cover the sky with clouds, my bow shall appear in the clouds:
15And I will remember my covenant with you, and with every living soul that beareth flesh: and there shall no more be waters of a flood to destroy all flesh.
16And the bow shall be in the clouds, and I shall see it, and shall remember the everlasting covenant, that was made between God and every living soul of all flesh which is upon the earth.
17And God said to Noe: This shall be the sign of the covenant which I have established between me and all flesh upon the earth.
18And the sons of Noe who came out of the ark, were Sem, Cham, and Japheth: and Cham is the father of Chanaan.
19These three are the sons of Noe: and from these was all mankind spread over the whole earth.
20And Noe, a husbandman, began to till the ground, and planted a vineyard,
21And drinking of the wine was made drunk, and was uncovered in his tent.
22Which when Cham the father of Chaanan had seen, to wit, that his father's nakedness was uncovered, he told it to his two brethren without.
23But Sem and Japheth put a cloak upon their shoulders, and going backward covered the nakedness of their father: and their faces were turned away, and they saw not their father's nakedness.
24And Noe awaking from the wine, when he had learned what his younger son had done to him,
25He said: Cursed be Chaanan; a servant of servant shall he be unto his brethren.
26And he said: Blessed be the Lord God of Sem; be Chanaan his servant.
27May God enlarge Japheth, and may he dwell in the tents of Sem; and Chanaan be his servant.
28And Noe lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.
29And all his days were in the whole nine hundred and fifty years: and he died.

1 And God blessed Noah and his sons. And he said to them: "Increase, and multiply, and fill the earth.
2 And let the fear and trembling of you be upon all the animals of the earth, and upon all the birds of the air, along with all that moves across the earth. All the fish of the sea have been delivered into your hand.
3 And everything that moves and lives will be food for you. Just as with the edible plants, I have delivered them all to you,
4 except that flesh with blood you shall not eat.
5 For I will examine the blood of your lives at the hand of every beast. So also, at the hand of mankind, at the hand of each man and his brother, I will examine the life of mankind.
6 Whoever will shed human blood, his blood will be poured out. For man was indeed made to the image of God.
7 But as for you: increase and multiply, and go forth upon the earth and fulfill it."
8 To Noah and to his sons with him, God also said this:
9 "Behold, I will establish my covenant with you, and with your offspring after you,
10 and with every living soul that is with you: as much with the birds as with the cattle and all the animals of the earth that have gone forth from the ark, and with all the wild beasts of the earth.
11 I will establish my covenant with you, and no longer will all that is flesh be put to death by the waters of a great flood, and, henceforth, there will not be a great flood to utterly destroy the earth."
12 And God said: "This is the sign of the pact that I grant between me and you, and to every living soul that is with you, for perpetual generations.
13 I will place my arc in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the pact between myself and the earth.
14 And when I obscure the sky with clouds, my arc will appear in the clouds.
15 And I will remember my covenant with you, and with every living soul that enlivens flesh. And there will no longer be waters from a great flood to wipe away all that is flesh.
16 And the arc will be in the clouds, and I will see it, and I will remember the everlasting covenant that was enacted between God and every living soul of all that is flesh upon the earth."
17 And God said to Noah, "This will be the sign of the covenant that I have established between myself and all that is flesh upon the earth."
18 And so the sons of Noah, who came out of the ark, were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Now Ham himself is the father of Canaan.
19 These three are the sons of Noah. And from these all the family of mankind was spread over the whole earth.
20 And Noah, a good farmer, began to cultivate the land, and he planted a vineyard.
21 And by drinking its wine, he became inebriated and was naked in his tent.
22 Because of this, when Ham, the father of Canaan, had indeed seen the privates of his father to be naked, he reported it to his two brothers outside.
23 And truly, Shem and Japheth put a cloak upon their arms, and, advancing backwards, covered the privates of their father. And their faces were turned away, so that they did not see their father's manhood.
24 Then Noah, awaking from the wine, when he had learned what his younger son had done to him,
25 he said, "Cursed be Canaan, a servant of servants will he be to his brothers."
26 And he said: "Blessed be the Lord God of Shem, let Canaan be his servant.
27 May God enlarge Japheth, and may he live in the tents of Shem, and let Canaan be his servant."
28 And after the great flood, Noah lived for three hundred and fifty years.
29 And all his days were completed in nine hundred and fifty years, and then he died.
