18 Noah's sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth came out of the ark. Now Ham was Canaan's father. 18 The sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth. (Ham was the father of Canaan.)
19 These were Noah's three sons, and from them the whole earth was populated. 19 These were the three sons of Noah, and from them came the people who were scattered over the earth.
20 Noah, a farmer, made a new start and planted a vineyard. 20 Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard.
21 He drank some of the wine, became drunk, and took off his clothes in his tent. 21 When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent.
22 Ham, Canaan's father, saw his father naked and told his two brothers who were outside. 22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness and told his two brothers outside.
23 Shem and Japheth took a robe, threw it over their shoulders, walked backward, and covered their naked father without looking at him because they turned away. 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.
24 When Noah woke up from his wine, he discovered what his youngest son had done to him. 24 When Noah awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him,
25 He said, "Cursed be Canaan: the lowest servant he will be for his brothers." 25 he said, "Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves will he be to his brothers."
26 He also said, "Bless the LORD, the God of Shem; Canaan will be his servant. 26 He also said, "Blessed be the LORD, the God of Shem! May Canaan be the slave of Shem.
27 May God give space to Japheth; he will live in Shem's tents, and Canaan will be his servant." 27 May God extend the territory of Japheth; may Japheth live in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be his slave."
28 After the flood, Noah lived 350 years. 28 After the flood Noah lived 350 years.
29 In all, Noah lived 950 years; then he died. 29 Altogether, Noah lived 950 years, and then he died.
