Genesis 9:24-29 New International Version

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 of slaves will he be to his brothers." 26  He also said, "Praise be to the Lord, the God of Shem! May Canaan be the slave of Shem. 27  May God extend Japheth's[1] territory; may Japheth live in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be the slave of Japheth."

28  After the flood Noah lived 350 years. 29  Noah lived a total of 950 years, and then he died.


[1] 9:27 "Japheth" sounds like the Hebrew for "extend."
