The sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth.1 (Ham was the father of Canaan.)219
These were the three sons of Noah,3 and from them came the people who were scattered over the earth.420
Noah, a man of the soil, proceededa to plant a vineyard.
When he drank some of its wine,5 he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent.
Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness6 and told his two brothers outside.
But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father's nakedness. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father's nakedness.
