1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth. (This is a commandment)
2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every living thing on the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moves upon the ground, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. (Power over them using knowledge and wisdom)
3 Every thing that lives shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
4 But flesh with the soul thereof, which is the blood thereof (This is the essence and foundation of the doctrine of substitution and atonement = "life for life" "the wages of sin is death", and "without shedding of blood [and thus giving up the life] is no remission"), shall you not eat. (Spiritual & health Laws)
5 And surely your blood, that is your lives, will I require; at the hand of every soul will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the soul of man.
6 Whosoever sheds man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed (No if, ands, or buts. Judicial Order. He inserted new Laws to try to keep mankind straight. For the Laws before Sinai see 15:3.): for in the image of God made He man. ('elohim -see note on 1:27 & 3:7.)
7 And you, be you all fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein."
8 And God spoke to Noah, and to his sons with him saying,
9 "And I, behold, I establish My covenant with you, and with your seed after you; (Eternal covenant)
10 And every living soul that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, of every living thing of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.
11 And I will establish My covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by waters of a flood; neither shall there be any more a flood to destroy the earth."
12 And God said, "This is the token (or sign) of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living soul that is with you, for perpetual generations (=for ever, eternity. He will never take your rest from you as long as you TRY to absorb His word):
13 I do grant My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between Me and the earth.
14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, and when the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
15 And I will remember (Fig. of Speech) My covenant which is between Me and you and every living soul of all flesh; and the waters shall be no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. (Don't forget Satan is super-natural and can bring rain IF God allows it [for correction]. But He will intercede to the point were Satan would try to destroy all flesh. God will protect His elect.)
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 soul of all flesh that is upon the earth."
17 And 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."
18 And the son's of Noah, that went forth from the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan. (Canaan hasn't been born yet. Why is he inserted here? See v.22.)
19 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread. (with Adamite people, and also the races of the six day that made it through the flood. See 7:15. Are not all the races of flesh?)
20 And Noah was a man of the ground and he planted a vineyard: (giving himself to tillage)
21 And he drank of the wine (fermented), and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father (Hebrew Idiom that means slept with his mother, his father's wife. See Lev. 18:8 & 20:11. This is NOT how the black race got started, they were created on the 6th day of creation [see 1:27]. God does things naturally. Incest in same race cannot create a new race. God will not punish a race of people entirely. Traditions of men make void the Word of God. Take God's Word and make the traditions of men void, to help them and heal them. Always respect God's children with dignity.), and told his two brothers outside.
23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father (= their mother); and their faces were backward, and they didn't see their fathers nakedness (= their mother).
24 And Noah awoke from his wine (means very much awake, awake to wisdom), and he knew what his younger son (younger than Japheth, not Shem) had done to him.
25 And he said, "Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be to his brethren." (Noah said this not God. See v.22)
26 And he said, "Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
27 God shall enlarge Japheth (fulfilled in Western nations), and he shall dwell in tents of Shem (as in a Tabernacle. Heb. 'ohel. Probably plural of majesty, the Great Tent or Tabernacle of Shem, who thus would be the "Priest of the most High God". See 14:18.); and Canaan shall be his servant."
28 And Noah lived after the flood 350 years.
29 And all the days of Noah were 950 years: and he died.
