JOSEPH SMITH TRANSLATION
GENESIS 9: 10-15
Man will be held accountable for murder and also for wasting animal life. (compare Genesis 9: 3-9)
  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 man’s 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 man’s 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.
