Bible: Genesis 9:18-29
The Curse of Canaan
9:20 Noah, a man of the soil, 3 began to plant a vineyard. 4 9:21 When he drank some of the wine, he got drunk and uncovered himself 5 inside his tent. 9:22 Ham, the father of Canaan, 6 saw his father’s nakedness 7 and told his two brothers who were outside. 9:23 Shem and Japheth took the garment 8 and placed it on their shoulders. Then they walked in backwards and covered up their father’s nakedness. Their faces were turned 9 the other way so they did not see their father’s nakedness.
The lowest of slaves 15
he will be to his brothers.”
9:26 He also said,
“Worthy of praise is 16 the
May Canaan be the slave of Shem! 17
9:27 May God enlarge Japheth’s territory and numbers! 18
May he live 19 in the tents of Shem
and may Canaan be his slave!”
9:28 After the flood Noah lived 350 years. 9:29 The entire lifetime of Noah was 950 years, and then he died.
