JST, Genesis 9:4Ė6. Compare Genesis 8:20Ė22
After the Flood, Noah asks the Lord not to curse the earth again.
4 And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord, and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar; and gave thanks unto the Lord, and rejoiced in his heart.
5 And the Lord spake unto Noah, and he blessed him. And Noah smelled a sweet savor, and he said in his heart;
6 I will call on the name of the Lord, that he will not again curse the ground any more for manís sake, for the imagination of manís heart is evil from his youth; and that he will not again smite any more every thing living, as he hath done, while the earth remaineth;
JST, Genesis 9:10Ė15. Compare Genesis 9:4Ė9
Man is accountable for shedding the blood of animals and of men. God establishes with Noah and his sons the same covenant He made with Enoch.
10 But, the blood of all flesh which I have given you for meat, shall be shed upon the ground, which taketh life thereof, and the blood ye shall not eat.
11 And surely, blood shall not be shed, only for meat, to save your lives; and the blood of every beast will I require at your hands.
12 And whoso sheddeth manís blood, by man shall his blood be shed; for man shall not shed the blood of man.
13 For a commandment I give, that every manís brother shall preserve the life of man, for in mine own image have I made man.
14 And a commandment I give unto you, Be ye fruitful and multiply; bring forth abundantly on the earth, and multiply therein.
15 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, And I, behold, I will establish my covenant with you, which I made unto your father Enoch, concerning your seed after you.
