Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
Is this a who, what, when, where, or how passage?
1. Then God blessed Noah and his sons and told them, "Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth.
2. All the animals of the earth, all the birds of the sky, all the small animals that scurry along th ground, and all the fish in the sea will look on you with fear and terror. I have placed them in your power.
3. I have given them to you for food, just as I have given you grain and vegetables.
4. But you must never eat any meat that still has the lifeblood in it.
5. "And I will require the blood of anyone who takes another person's life. If a wild animal kills a person, it must die. And anyone who murders a fellow human must die.
6. If anyone takes a human life, that person's life will also be taken by human hands. For God made human being in his own image.
7. Now be fruitful and multiply, and repopulate the earth."
8. Then God told Noah and his sons,
9. "I hereby confirm my and your descendants,
10. and with all the animals that were on the boat with you — the birds, the livestock, and all the wild animals — every living creature on earth.
11. Yes, I am confirming my covenant with you. Never again will floodwaters kill all living creatures; never again will a flood destroy the earth."
12. Then God said, "I am giving you a sign of my covenant with you and with all living creatures, for all generations to come.
13. I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my covenant with you and with all the earth.
14. When I send clouds over the earth, the rainbow will appear in the clouds,
15. and I will remember my covenant with you and with all living creatures. Never again will the floodwaters destroy all life.
16. When I see the rainbow in the clouds, I will remember the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth."
17. Then God said to Noah, "Yes, this rainbow is the sign of the covenant I am confirming with all the creatures on earth."
