Book of Genesis  Chapter 9

The rainbow - God's covenant

GENESIS 9:1  And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be  fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

GENESIS 9:2  And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast  of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the  earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.

GENESIS 9:3  Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the  green herb have I given you all things.

GENESIS 9:4  But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye  not eat.

GENESIS 9:5  And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of  every beast 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.

GENESIS 9:6  Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the  image of God made he man.

GENESIS 9:7  And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the  earth, and multiply therein.

GENESIS 9:8  And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,

GENESIS 9:9  And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed  after you;

GENESIS 9:10  And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the  cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the  ark, to every beast of the earth.

GENESIS 9:11  And 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.

GENESIS 9:12  And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between  me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual  generations:

GENESIS 9:13  I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a  covenant between me and the earth.

GENESIS 9:14  And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that  the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

GENESIS 9:15  And 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.

GENESIS 9:16  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 creature  of all flesh that is upon the earth.

GENESIS 9:17  And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I  have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

GENESIS 9:18  And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and  Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.

GENESIS 9:19  These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth  overspread.

GENESIS 9:20  And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:

GENESIS 9:21  And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered  within his tent.

GENESIS 9:22  And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and  told his two brethren without.

GENESIS 9:23  And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their  shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and  their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.

GENESIS 9:24  And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done  unto him.

GENESIS 9:25  And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto  his brethren.

GENESIS 9:26  And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his  servant.

GENESIS 9:27  God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem;  and Canaan shall be his servant.

GENESIS 9:28  And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.

GENESIS 9:29  And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: and he  died.

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, accepted by the three major Western faiths and a major work of Western civilization, documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
