In this re-creation of the world, Noah is a new Adam (see Genesis 9:2-4). And we see again that it doesn’t take long for sin to rear its ugly head.
The re-creation (replenishment) of the earth continues with God commanding Noah like he did with Adam, to be fruitful and multiply and a reaffirmation of man’s dominion over animals but not the earth.
The words, "and subdue it, which were included in the command to Adam in Genesis 1:28, are left out here with Noah because the world dominion originally assigned to man in Adam had been forfeited by sin. World dominion will only be restored through Jesus Christ the woman's seed
In this new creation, Noah exceeds Adam as he is given kingly authority.
