Pamphlet #6244 Genesis KC 18-1
did not create every plant on earth to be eaten, such as poison ivy, etc.
anymore than He created all animal life to be eaten!
We Christians had better pay close attention to these instructions and take them seriously! See Editor's Note below, at the end of this pamphlet.
There are two "qualifiers" for the flesh that shall be eaten
Here is how it was explained to Noah!
The Great Deluge is finally over.
Noah and his family have come forth from the ark to begin their lives anew.
And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
 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.
 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
However, there are two "qualifiers" for the flesh that shall be eaten just as there are reasons for not eating some plants.
The first qualifier being "even as the green herb"
God did not create every plant on earth to be eaten, such as poison ivy. When He applies the phrase "even as the green herb" to animals which may be eaten he means some meats are excluded just as poison ivy is excluded from edible plants!
Moses would later classify those animals which are edible, i.e. created for food, and those that are not, in Deuteronomy 14:3-21 & Leviticus 11:1-47
The second qualifier is as follows :
 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
In as much as the blood contains the "life" of the soul.
