Genesis 9:18-23 New International Version

Noah's Drunkenness

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 the three sons of Noah, and from them came the people who were scattered over the whole earth. 20  Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded[1] to plant a vineyard. 21  When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent. 22  Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father naked and told his two brothers outside. 23  But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father's naked body. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father naked.
