Bible: Genesis 9:20-25

9:20 Noah, a man of the soil, 1  began to plant a vineyard. 2  9:21 When he drank some of the wine, he got drunk and uncovered himself 3  inside his tent. 9:22 Ham, the father of Canaan, 4  saw his father’s nakedness 5  and told his two brothers who were outside. 9:23 Shem and Japheth took the garment 6  and placed it on their shoulders. Then they walked in backwards and covered up their father’s nakedness. Their faces were turned 7  the other way so they did not see their father’s nakedness.

9:24 When Noah awoke from his drunken stupor 8  he learned 9  what his youngest son had done 10  to him. 9:25 So he said,

Cursed 11  be Canaan! 12 

The lowest of slaves 13 

he will be to his brothers.”
