Prima Pars
Benedixit Deus Noë et filiis eius
et dixit ad eos:
'Crescite et multiplicamini,
et replete omnem terram.

Secunda Pars
Ecce, ego statuam pactum meum vobiscum
et cum semine vestro post vos.
Crescite et multiplicamini,
et replete omnem terram.'

Genesis IX:1,9 - New International Version

God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them,
"Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth.
I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you.
Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth."
