Noah was the first tiller of the soil. He planted a vineyard;
and he drank of the wine, and became drunk, and lay uncovered in his tent.
And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.
Then Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it upon both their shoulders, and walked backward and covered the nakedness of their father; their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father039;s nakedness.
When Noah awoke from his wine and knew what his youngest son had done to him,
he said, "Cursed be Canaan; a slave of slaves shall he be to his brothers."
He also said, "Blessed by the Lord my God be Shem; and let Canaan be his slave."
God enlarge Japheth, and let him dwell in the tents of Shem; and let Canaan be his slave."
After the flood Noah lived three hundred and fifty years.
All the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years; and he died.
These are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth; sons were born to them after the flood.
The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras.
The sons of Gomer: Ash039;kenaz, Riphath, and Togar039;mah.
The sons of Javan: Eli039;shah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Do039;danim.
From these the coastland peoples spread. These are the sons of Japheth in their lands, each with his own language, by their families, in their nations.
The sons of Ham: Cush, Egypt, Put, and Canaan.
The sons of Cush: Seba, Hav039;ilah, Sabtah, Ra039;amah, and Sab039;teca. The sons of Ra039;amah: Sheba and Dedan.
Cush became the father of Nimrod; he was the first on earth to be a mighty man.
He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, "Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the Lord."
The beginning of his kingdom was Ba039;bel, Erech, and Accad, all of them in the land of Shinar.
From that land he went into Assyria, and built Nin039;eveh, Reho039;both-Ir, Calah, and
Resen between Nin039;eveh and Calah; that is the great city.
Egypt became the father of Ludim, An039;amim, Leha039;bim, Naph-tu039;him,
Pathru039;sim, Caslu039;him (whence came the Philistines), and Caph039;torim.
Canaan became the father of Sidon his first-born, and Heth,
