And every tree, in the which [is] the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

from Holy Bible (KJV) – Genesis 1 on Rap Genius

Meaning

Sounds like God intended for man and woman to be vegetarians at least at first. It isn’t until the Flood that He permits humans to eat meat (Genesis 9:3-4). The previous sentence about “every herb bearing seed” to be eaten for “meat,” indicates both vegetables and fruits were the initial human diet.

Isaac Bashevis Singer was a vegetarian who said: “There will be no end of wars in the world until people stop killing animals. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together.”
