And God said unto Noah, This is
the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is
upon the earth.
And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is
the father of Canaan.
the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.
And Noah began to be
an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
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.
And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
And he said, Cursed be
Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
And he said, Blessed be
the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
