Commentary on Genesis 9:2-4
By Davida Rosenberg - 25 Oct 2009
G-D must have 'changed' His mind...because He gave specific dietary rules about which clean animals could be eaten in the book of Leviticus... and I know He doesn't change His mind. However... your thinking is interesting in that... if Noah consumed the animals on the ark for food..... they would have been extinct in a short time.
If Remes means reptiles.. and more specifically the eggs only... that would have allowed for a flock to be replenished on the earth. But why not chicken eggs, or turkey eggs... reptile eggs?
