Sons of Noah

However Japheth was actually the oldest, Shem the middle son, and Ham the youngest. Noah is not called to account for getting drunk. Bring forth with you every living thing that is with you of all flesh --birds and animals and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth--that they may breed abundantly on the earth, and be fruitful and multiply upon the earth." So Noah went forth, and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him. All human beings who have ever lived on earth carry the original genetic programming God built into Adam.

In the six hundred and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried from off the earth; and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and behold, the face of the ground was dry. Because is this not the Land of father Abraham faith was tested? AnonymousSayreville, NJ. Later on Jacob for instance would do a similar thing (Genesis 48-49).

The answer is simple. From each of Noah's sons came the three divisions of called the "races". But just one question or ratrher comment: Is there a reason why Ham's sons name was not mentioned. The Flood had not in any way eradicated original sin in the lives of Noah, his sons or there three wives. Also the Qur'an indicates a great calamity, enough to have destroyed Noah's people, but to have saved him and his generations to come.

In a rather matter-of-fact manner, Genesis 9 records an incident in Noah's life which provoked a major family crisis. Then God said to Noah, "Go forth from the ark, you and your wife, and your sons and your sons' wives with you. While the earth remains, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease." (Genesis 8:13-22)

Noah's prophecy contains an outline sketch of history, focused in a general way on the descendants of Noah's three sons. Anthropologists divide all the world's peoples into three races, Caucasian (white), Mongoloid (yellow) and Negroid (black). In the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dry. Arthur Custance has a thorough study of these three man and the contributions in history which are unique to each branch of Noah's family. Further within each of the sons was the potential to produce all the variations that is evident within the three races of man. It must have been many years or more likely many decades after the Flood, so at the very least Noah's grandchildren had been born and were probably present, probably as young adults. The infrastructure of the great civilization which existed before the Flood was all gone, farming and animal husbandry supported the family of Noah as they grew in number. See his book Noah's Three Sons. As such it has three parts: 1) a curse on Canaan, the son of Ham, and blessings upon 2) Shem and 3) Japheth.

Upon waking, Noah is made aware of Ham's behavior and he evidently makes it an occasion for a family conference. This is yet another argument for a universal, global flood which reduced the entire human population to a total of eight individuals. As the family Patriarch, Noah makes cryptic prophetic remarks about his sons and their futures as he sees it unfolding. Permanent buildings and cities came later.

November 17, 2006 Ham's Sin I like what i have read so far. And when the LORD smelled the pleasing odor, the LORD said in his heart, "I will never again curse the ground because of man, for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I ever again destroy every living creature as I have done. Then Noah built an altar to the LORD, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. In spite of the family's devotion to God signified by Noah's sacrifice when they all emerged from the Ark.

The names of Noah's sons are always listed in the same order in the Bible. Click here to read my paper "The Origin of Race"

We are not told how long after the Flood the incident of Noah's drunkenness occurred. I believe it would important to have mention his name; being that the scripture says when Noah awoke he said Cursed be Canaan- and isn't the same land where God told his people not to take wifes from? I just felt that this was a very important detail. The sons of Noah are not expressly mentioned in the Qur'an, except for the fact that one of the sons was among the people who did not follow his own father, not among the believers and thus was washed away in the flood. They lived at first only in tents. The above passage from Genesis makes clear that all human beings on earth today are descended from these three men and their wives (the women are unnamed in Scripture). And every beast, every creeping thing, and every bird, everything that moves upon the earth, went forth by families out of the ark. It was probably an isolated incident, though it would certainly have been wrong as far as God is concerned. Although Noah lived an additional 350 years after the Flood, he evidently had no additional children.
