Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
18 The sons of Noah who went forth from the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Ham was 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 three were the sons of Noah; and from these the whole earth was peopled. 19 These were the three sons of Noah, and from them came the people who were scattered over the earth.
20 Noah was the first tiller of the soil. He planted a vineyard; 20 Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard.
21 and he drank of the wine, and became drunk, and lay uncovered in 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 brothers outside. 22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness and told his two brothers outside.
23 Then Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it upon both their shoulders, and walked backward and covered the nakedness of their father; their faces were turned away, and they did not see 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.
