Genesis 9
A Faithful Version

1And God blessed Noah and his sons, and He said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth. 2And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every bird of the air, upon all that moves on the earth, and upon all the fish of the sea. Into your hand they are delivered. 3Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you, even as the green herb I have given you all things. 4But you shall not eat of flesh with the life in it--which is its blood. 5And surely the blood of your lives will I require. At the hand of every animal 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.

6Whoever sheds man's blood, his blood shall be shed by man--for He made man in the image of God.

7And you, be fruitful and multiply. Bring forth abundantly in the earth, and increase in it."

8And God spoke to Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, 9"Behold I, even I establish My covenant with you, and with your seed after you; 10And with every living creature that is with you--of the birds, of the livestock, and of every animal of the earth with you--from all that go out from the ark, to every animal of the earth. 11And 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." 12And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature with you, for everlasting generations: 13I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. 14And it shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud. 15And 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. 16And the rainbow 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." 17And God said to Noah, "This is the token of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is upon the earth."

18And the sons of Noah that went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And Ham is the father of Canaan. 19These are the three sons of Noah, and the whole earth was overspread from them.

20And Noah began to be a husbandman, and he planted a vineyard. 21And he drank of the wine and was drunk, and he was uncovered inside his tent. 22And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. 23And Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it upon both their shoulders, and they went backwards and covered the nakedness of their father, and their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father's nakedness. 24And Noah awoke from his wine, and learned what his youngest grandson had done to him.

25And he said, "Cursed be Canaan. He shall be a servant of servants to his brothers."

26And he said, "Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

27God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; And Canaan shall be their servant."

28And Noah lived three hundred and fifty years after the flood. 29And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years, and he died.
