1And God blessed Noah and his sonnes, and said to them, Bring foorth fruite, and multiplie, and replenish the earth. 2Also the feare of you, and the dread of you shalbe vpon euery beast of the earth, and vpon euery foule of the heauen, vpon all that moueth on the earth, and vpon all the fishes of the sea: into your hand are they deliuered. 3Euery thing that moueth and liueth, shall be meate for you: as the greene herbe, haue I giuen you all things. 4But flesh with the life thereof, I meane, with the blood thereof, shall ye not eate. 5For surely I will require your blood, wherein your liues are: at the hand of euery beast will I require it: and at the hand of man, euen at the hand of a mans brother will I require the life of man. 6Who so sheadeth mans blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God hath he made man. 7But bring ye forth fruite and multiplie: grow plentifully in the earth, and increase therein. 8God spake also to Noah and to his sonnes with him, saying, 9Behold, I, euen I establish my couenant with you, and with your seede after you, 10And with euery liuing creature that is with you, with the foule, with the cattell, and with euery beast of the earth with you, from all that goe out of the Arke, vnto euery beast of the earth. 11And my couenant will I establish with you, that from henceforth all flesh shall not be rooted out by ye waters of the flood, neither shall there be a flood to destroy the earth any more. 12Then God saide, This is the token of the couenant which I make betweene me and you, and betweene euery liuing thing, that is with you vnto perpetuall generations. 13I haue set my bowe in the cloude, and it shalbe for a signe of the couenant betweene me and the earth. 14And when I shall couer the earth with a cloud, and the bowe shall be seene in the cloude, 15Then will I remember my couenant, which is betweene me and you, and betweene euery liuing thing in all flesh, and there shalbe no more waters of a flood to destroy all flesh. 16Therefore the bowe shalbe in the cloude, that I may see it, and remember the euerlasting couenant betweene God, and euery liuing thing in all flesh that is vpon the earth. 17God said yet to Noah, This is the signe of the couenant, which I haue established betweene me and all flesh that is vpon the earth. 18Nowe the sonnes of Noah going foorth of the Arke, were Shem and Ham and Iapheth. And Ham is the father of Canaan. 19These are the three sonnes of Noah, and of them was the whole earth ouerspred. 20Noah also began to be an husband man and planted a vineyard. 21And he drunke of ye wine and was drunken, and was vncouered in the middes of his tent. 22And when Ham the father of Canaan sawe the nakednesse of his father, he tolde his two brethren without. 23Then tooke Shem and Iapheth a garment, and put it vpon both their shoulders, and went backwarde, and couered the nakednesse of their father with their faces backwarde: so they sawe not their fathers nakednesse. 24Then Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his yonger sonne had done vnto him, 25And said, Cursed be Canaan: a seruant of seruants shall he be vnto his brethren. 26He said moreouer, blessed be the Lord God of Shem, and let Canaan be his seruant. 27God perswade Iapheth, that he may dwell in the tentes of Shem, and let Canaan be his seruant. 28And Noah liued after the flood three hundreth and fiftie yeeres. 29So all the dayes of Noah were nine hundreth and fiftie yeeres: and he died.

1Vayevarech Elohim et Noach and his banim, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish ha'aretz.
2And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of ha'aretz, and upon every bird of the air, upon all that moveth upon ha'adamah, and upon all the dagim of the yam; into your yad are they delivered.
3Every remes that liveth shall be food for you; even as the yarok esev (green plant) have I given you all.
4But basar with the nefesh thereof, which is the dahm thereof, shall ye not eat.
5And surely your dahm of your nefeshot will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the yad haAdam; at the hand of every manʼs brother will I require the nefesh haAdam.
6Shofech dahm (one who sheddeth manʼs blood), by man shall his dahm be shed; for in the tzelem Elohim made He man.
7And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly on ha'aretz, and multiply therein.
8And Elohim spoke unto Noach, and to his banim with him, saying,
9And I, hineni, I establish My brit (covenant) with you, and with your zera after you;
10And with kol nefesh that is with you, of the bird, of the behemah, and of every animal of ha'aretz with you; from kol yotzei hatevah (all that go out of the ark), to every creature of ha'aretz.
11And I will establish My brit (covenant) with you, neither shall kol basar yikaret (be cut off, violently killed) any more by the waters of the mabbul; neither shall there be any more mabbul l'shacheit (to destroy) ha'aretz.
12And Elohim said, This is the ot (sign) of the brit (covenant) which I make between Me and you and every nefesh chayyah (living creature) that is with you, for dorot olam (perpetual generations);
13I do set My keshet (bow) in the anan (cloud), and it shall be for an ot brit between Me and ha'aretz.
14And it shall come to pass, when I bring an anan over ha'aretz, that the keshet be'anan (rainbow) shall be seen;
15And I will remember My brit, which is between Me and you and kol nefesh chayyah of kol basar; and the waters shall no more become a mabbul (flood) l'shacheit (to destroy) kol basar.
16And the keshet shall be in the anan; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the brit olam between Elohim and kol nefesh chayyah of kol basar that is upon ha'aretz.
17And Elohim said unto Noach, This is the ot habrit, which I have established between Me and kol basar that is upon ha'aretz.
18And the bnei Noach, that went forth of the tevah, were Shem, and Cham, and Yephet; and Cham is the av of Kena'an (Canaan).
19Shloshah (Three) are the bnei Noach; and of them was the kol ha'aretz populated.
20And Noach began to be an ish ha'adamah (a man of the soil), and he planted a kerem (vineyard);
21And he drank of the yayin, and became shikker (intoxicated); and he lay uncovered inside his ohel.
22And Cham, the av of Kena'an, saw the erom (nakedness) of his av, and told his two achim on the outside.
23And Shem and Yephet took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and walked backward, and covered the erom of their av; and their faces were turned the other way, and they saw not the erom of their av.
24And Noach awoke from his yayin, and had da'as of what his ben katan had done unto him.
25And he said, Arur (cursed) be Kena'an; an eved of avadim shall he be unto his achim.
26And he said, Baruch Hashem Elohei Shem; and Kena'an shall be his eved.
27Elohim shall enlarge Yephet, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Kena'an shall be his eved.
28And Noach lived after the mabbul three hundred and fifty years.
29And all the days of Noach were nine hundred and fifty years; and he died.
