Genesis 9

9
1-4God blessed Noah and his sons: He said, “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill the Earth! Every living creature—birds, animals, fish—will fall under your spell and be afraid of you. You’re responsible for them. All living creatures are yours for food; just as I gave you the plants, now I give you everything else. Except for meat with its lifeblood still in it—don’t eat that.
5“But your own lifeblood I will avenge; I will avenge it against both animals and other humans.
6-7Whoever sheds human blood,
by humans let his blood be shed,
Because God made humans in his image
reflecting God’s very nature.
You’re here to bear fruit, reproduce,
lavish life on the Earth, live bountifully!”
8-11Then God spoke to Noah and his sons: “I’m setting up my covenant with you including your children who will come after you, along with everything alive around you—birds, farm animals, wild animals—that came out of the ship with you. I’m setting up my covenant with you that never again will everything living be destroyed by floodwaters; no, never again will a flood destroy the Earth.”
12-16God continued, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and everything living around you and everyone living after you. I’m putting my rainbow in the clouds, a sign of the covenant between me and the Earth. From now on, when I form a cloud over the Earth and the rainbow appears in the cloud, I’ll remember my covenant between me and you and everything living, that never again will floodwaters destroy all life. When the rainbow appears in the cloud, I’ll see it and remember the eternal covenant between God and everything living, every last living creature on Earth.”
17And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I’ve set up between me and everything living on the Earth.”
18-19The sons of Noah who came out of the ship were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Ham was the father of Canaan. These are the three sons of Noah; from these three the whole Earth was populated.
20-23Noah, a farmer, was the first to plant a vineyard. He drank from its wine, got drunk and passed out, naked in his tent. Ham, the father of Canaan, saw that his father was naked and told his two brothers who were outside the tent. Shem and Japheth took a cloak, held it between them from their shoulders, walked backward and covered their father’s nakedness, keeping their faces turned away so they did not see their father’s exposed body.
24-27When Noah woke up with his hangover, he learned what his youngest son had done. He said,
Cursed be Canaan! A slave of slaves,
a slave to his brothers!
Blessed be God, the God of Shem,
but Canaan shall be his slave.
God prosper Japheth,
living spaciously in the tents of Shem.
But Canaan shall be his slave.
28-29Noah lived another 350 years following the flood. He lived a total of 950 years. And he died.

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.
