Return to Genesis 9 (idea)

[Genesis 8|Previous Chapter] | [Genesis 10|Next Chapter]
9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and [replenish the earth].
9:2 And [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 moveth upon the earth, and upon [all the fishes of the sea]; into your [hand] are they [delivered].
9:3 [Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat] for you; even as the [green herb] have I given you all things.
9:4 But [flesh with the life thereof], which is the [blood] thereof, shall ye not eat.
9:5 And [surely] [your blood] of [your 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].
9:6 Whoso sheddeth [man's blood], by man shall his blood be shed: [for] in the image of God made he man.
9:7 And you, be ye [fruitful], and [multiply]; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and [multiply] therein.
9:8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, 9:9 And I, behold, [I establish my covenant with you], and with your seed after you; 9:10 And with [every living creature] that is with you, of the [fowl], of the [cattle], and of every [beast] of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.
9:11 And 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 any more be [a flood to destroy the earth].
9:12 And God 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]: 9:13 [I do set my bow in the cloud], and it shall be for [a token of a covenant] between me and the earth.
9:14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a [cloud] over the earth, that [the bow shall be seen in the cloud]: 9:15 And I will [remember] my covenant, which is [between me and you and every living creature] of all [flesh]; and the waters shall no more become [a flood to destroy all flesh].
9:16 And [the bow] shall be in [the cloud]; and I will [look upon] it, that I may remember the [everlasting] covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
9:17 And God said unto Noah, This is [the token of the covenant], which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.
9:18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and [Ham is the father of Canaan].
9:19 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.
9:20 And Noah began to be an [husbandman], and he planted a [vineyard]: 9:21 And he drank of the [wine], and was [drunken]; and he was uncovered within his [tent].
9:22 And [Ham], the father of [Canaan], saw [the nakedness of his father], and told his two [brethren] without.
9:23 And Shem and Japheth 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.
9:24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew [what his younger son had done unto him].
9:25 And he said, [Cursed be Canaan]; a [servant of servants] shall he be unto his brethren.
9:26 And he said, [Blessed be the LORD] [God of Shem]; and Canaan shall be his servant.
9:27 [God shall enlarge Japheth], and he shall dwell in [the tents of Shem]; and Canaan shall be his servant.
9:28 And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.
9:29 And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: [and he died].
