Noah and His Family
Roles Sin Of The
After The Flood, The
Noah and His Family Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, came out of the boat. Ham later had a son named Canaan. All people on earth are descendants of Noahs three sons. Noah farmed the land and was the first to plant a vineyard.
One day he got drunk and was lying naked in his tent. Ham entered the tent and saw him naked, then went back outside and told his brothers. Shem and Japheth put a robe over their shoulders and walked backwards into the tent. Without looking at their father, they placed it over his body.
When Noah woke up and learned what his youngest son Ham had done, he said, I now put a curse on Canaan He will be the lowest slave of his brothers. I ask the Lord my God to bless Shem and make Canaan his slave.
I pray that the Lord will give Japheth more and more land and let him take over the territory of Shem.
May Canaan be his slave.
Noah lived three hundred fifty years after the flood and died at the age of nine hundred fifty. Genesis 9:18-29
