King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan. 18 The sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth. (Ham was the father of Canaan.)
19 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread . 19 These were the three sons of Noah, and from them came the people who were scattered over the earth.
20 And Noah began to be an husbandman , and he planted a vineyard: 20 Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard.
21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken ; and he was uncovered within his tent. 21 When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent.
22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. 22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness and told his two brothers outside.
23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness. 23 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.
