9:1And God blessed Noah, and his sonnes, and said vnto them, Bee fruitfull and multiply, and replenish the earth.
9:2And the feare of you, & the dread of you shall be vpon euery beast of the earth, and vpon euery fowle of the aire, vpon all that mooueth vpon the earth, and vpon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they deliuered.
9:3Euery mouing thing that liueth, shalbe meat for you; euen as the greene herbe haue I giuen you all things.
9:4But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall you not eate.
9:5And surely your blood of your liues will I require: at the hand of euery beast will I require it, & at the hand of man, at the hand of euery mans brother will I require the life of man.
9:6Who so sheddeth mans blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
9:7And you, be ye fruitfull, and multiply, bring foorth aboundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
9:8And God spake vnto Noah, and to his sonnes with him, saying;
9:9And I, behold, I establish my couenant with you, and with your seede after you:
9:10And with euery liuing creature that is with you, of the fowle, of the cattell, and of euery beast of the earth with you, from all that goe out of the Arke, to euery beast of the earth.
9:11And I wil establish my couenant with you, neither shal 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.
9:12And God said, This is the token of the Couenant which I make betweene mee and you, and euery liuing creature that is with you, for perpetuall generations.
9:13I doe set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a couenant, betweene me and the earth.
9:14And it shall come to passe, when I bring a cloud ouer the earth, that the bow shall be seene in the cloud.
9:15And I will remember my couenant, which is betweene mee and you, and euery liuing creature of all flesh: and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
9:16And the bow shalbe in the cloud; and I will looke vpon it, that I may remember the euerlasting couenant betweene God and euery liuing creature, of all flesh that is vpon the earth.
9:17And God said vnto Noah, This is the token of the couenant, which I haue established betweene mee and all flesh, that is vpon the earth.
9:18And the sonnes of Noah that went forth of the Arke, were Shem, and Ham, and Iaphet: and Ham is the father of Canaan.
9:19These are the three sonnes of Noah: and of them was the whole earth ouerspread.
9:20And Noah began to bee an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard.
9:21And he dranke of the wine, and was drunken, and hee was vncouered within his tent.
9:22And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakednesse of his father, and told his two brethren without.
9:23And Shem and Iaphet tooke a garment, and layed it vpon both their shoulders, and went backward, and couered the nakednesse of their father, and their faces were backward, and they saw not their fathers nakednesse.
9:24And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his yonger sonne had done vnto him.
9:25And he said, Cursed bee Canaan: a seruant of seruants shall hee be vnto his brethren.
9:26And hee saide, Blessed bee the LORD God of Shem, and Canaan shalbe his seruant.
9:27God shall enlarge Iaphet, and he shal dwel in the tents of Shem, and Canaan shalbe his seruant.
9:28And Noah liued after the flood, three hundred and fifty yeeres.
9:29And all the dayes of Noah were nine hundred & fifty yeeres, and he died.

King James Bible 1611

The commissioning of the King James Bible took place at a conference at the Hampton Court Palace in London England in 1604. When King James came to the throne he wanted unity and stability in the church and state, but was well aware that the diversity of his constituents had to be considered. There were the Papists who longed for the English church to return to the Roman Catholic fold and the Latin Vulgate. There were Puritans, loyal to the crown but wanting even more distance from Rome. The Puritans used the Geneva Bible which contained footnotes that the king regarded as seditious. The Traditionalists made up of Bishops of the Anglican Church wanted to retain the Bishops Bible.

The king commissioned a new English translation to be made by over fifty scholars representing the Puritans and Traditionalists. They took into consideration: the Tyndale New Testament, the Matthews Bible, the Great Bible and the Geneva Bible. The great revision of the Bible had begun. From 1605 to 1606 the scholars engaged in private research. From 1607 to 1609 the work was assembled. In 1610 the work went to press, and in 1611 the first of the huge (16 inch tall) pulpit folios known today as "The 1611 King James Bible" came off the printing press.
