1God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, 'Breed, multiply and fil the earth. 2Be the terror and the dread of al the animals on land and al the birds of heaven, of everything thatmoves on land and all the fish of the sea; they are placed in your hands. 3Every living thing that moves wil be yours to eat, no less than the foliage of the plants. I give youeverything, 4with this exception: you must not eat flesh with life, that is to say blood, in it. 5And I shal demand account of your life-blood, too. I shall demand it of every animal, and of man. Ofman as regards his fel ow-man, I shal demand account for human life. 6He who sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for in the image of God was mancreated. 7Be fruitful then and multiply, teem over the earth and subdue it!' 8God spoke as fol ows to Noah and his sons, 9'I am now establishing my covenant with you and with your descendants to come, 10and with every living creature that was with you: birds, cattle and every wild animal with you;everything that came out of the ark, every living thing on earth. 11And I shal maintain my covenant with you: that never again shal all living things be destroyed by thewaters of a flood, nor shal there ever again be a flood to devastate the earth.' 12'And this', God said, 'is the sign of the covenant which I now make between myself and you and everyliving creature with you for al ages to come: 13I now set my bow in the clouds and it wil be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14When I gather the clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, 15I shal recall the covenant between myself and you and every living creature, in a word al living things,and never again will the waters become a flood to destroy al living things. 16When the bow is in the clouds I shall see it and call to mind the eternal covenant between God andevery living creature on earth, that is, al living things.' 17'That', God told Noah, 'is the sign of the covenant I have established between myself and al livingthings on earth.' 18The sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth-Ham being the father ofCanaan. 19These three were Noah's sons, and from these the whole earth was peopled. 20Noah, a til er of the soil, was the first to plant the vine. 21He drank some of the wine, and while he was drunk, he lay uncovered in his tent. 22Ham, father of Canaan, saw his father naked and told his two brothers outside. 23Shem and Japheth took a cloak and they both put it over their shoulders, and walking backwards,covered their father's nakedness; they kept their faces turned away, and they did not look at their father naked. 24When Noah awoke from his stupor he learned what his youngest son had done to him, 25and said: Accursed be Canaan, he shal be his brothers' meanest slave. 26He added: Blessed be Yahweh, God of Shem, let Canaan be his slave! 27May God make space for Japheth, may he live in the tents of Shem, and let Canaan be his slave! 28After the flood Noah lived three hundred and fifty years. 29In al , Noah's life lasted nine hundred and fifty years; then he died.
