I will put my rainbow in the clouds to be a sign of my promise to the earth.
Whenever I form clouds over the earth, a rainbow will appear in the clouds.
Then I will remember my promise to you and every living animal. Never again will water become a flood to destroy all life.
Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember my everlasting promise to every living animal on earth."
So God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the promise I am making to all life on earth."
Noah's sons, who came out of the ship, were Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
These were Noah's three sons. From them the whole earth was populated. Ham was the father of Canaan.
Noah, a farmer, was the first person to plant a vineyard.
He drank some wine, got drunk, and lay naked inside his tent.
Ham, father of Canaan, saw his father naked. So he went outside and told his two brothers.
Shem and Japheth took a blanket and laid it over their shoulders. Then they walked in backwards and covered their father's naked body. They turned their faces away so that they didn't see their father naked.
