|Genesis 9:1-5 |
Display Chapter and Footnotes
1 Then God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful, and multiply and replenish the earth.
2 The fear and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every bird of the air, upon all that moves upon the earth, and upon all the fish of the sea; they are delivered into your hand.
3 Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; I have given you all things, even as I gave you the green plants.
4 But you shall not eat flesh with its lifeblood, with the blood still in it.
5 And as for your lifeblood, I will surely require an accounting; I will require it from every beast; and I will require an accounting from every man for his fellow man.
