Geneva Study Bible
   1: And God gave his blessing to Noah and his sons, and said, Be fertile, and have increase, and make the earth full.
   2: And the fear of you will be strong in every beast of the earth and every bird of the air; everything which goes on the land, and all the fishes of the sea, are given into your hands.
   3: Every living and moving thing will be food for you; I give them all to you as before I gave you all green things.
   4: But flesh with the life-blood in it you may not take for food.
   5: And for your blood, which is your life, will I take payment; from every beast I will take it, and from every man will I take payment for the blood of his brother-man.
   6: Whoever takes a man's life, by man will his life be taken; because God made man in his image.
   7: And now, be fertile and have increase; have offspring on the earth and become great in number.
   8: And God said to Noah and to his sons,
   9: Truly, I will make my agreement with you and with your seed after you,
   10: And with every living thing with you, all birds and cattle and every beast of the earth which comes out of the ark with you.
   11: And I will make my agreement with you; never again will all flesh be cut off by the waters; never again will the waters come over all the earth for its destruction.
   12: And God said, This is the sign of the agreement which I make between me and you and every living thing with you, for all future generations:
   13: I will put my bow in the cloud and it will be for a sign of the agreement between me and the earth.
   14: And whenever I make a cloud come over the earth, the bow will be seen in the cloud,
   15: And I will keep in mind the agreement between me and you and every living thing; and never again will there be a great flow of waters causing destruction to all flesh.
   16: And the bow will be in the cloud, and looking on it, I will keep in mind the eternal agreement between God and every living thing on the earth.
   17: And God said to Noah, This is the sign of the agreement which I have made between me and all flesh on the earth.
   18: And the sons of Noah who went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and Ham is the father of Canaan.
   19: These three were the sons of Noah and from them all the earth was peopled.
   20: In those days Noah became a farmer, and he made a vine-garden.
   21: And he took of the wine of it and was overcome by drink; and he was uncovered in his tent.
   22: And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father unclothed, and gave news of it to his two brothers outside.
   23: And Shem and Japheth took a robe, and putting it on their backs went in with their faces turned away, and put it over their father so that they might not see him unclothed.
   24: And, awaking from his wine, Noah saw what his youngest son had done to him, and he said,
   25: Cursed be Canaan; let him be a servant of servants to his brothers.
   26: And he said, Praise to the Lord, the God of Shem; let Canaan be his servant.
   27: May God make Japheth great, and let his living-place be in the tents of Shem, and let Canaan be his servant.
   28: And Noah went on living three hundred and fifty years after the great flow of waters;
   29: all the years of his life were nine hundred and fifty: and he came to his end.
