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.
When Noah sobered up, he found out what his youngest son had done to him.
So he said, "Canaan is cursed! He will be the lowest slave to his brothers.
Praise the LORD, the God of Shem! Canaan will be his slave.
May God expand the territory of Japheth. May he live in the tents of Shem. Canaan will be his slave."
Noah lived 350 years after the flood.
Noah lived a total of 950 years; then he died.
