Genesis 9:18-19    Shem, Ham, and Japheth: Fathered All Races of Mankind

18 “Now the sons of Noah who went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And Ham was the father of Canaan. 19 These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated.” NKJV

 

Facts revealed:

Y      The sons of Noah were Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

Y      Noah lived 350 years after the Flood but had no other children. [see Genesis 9:28-29]

Y      Ham was the father of Canaan. 

Y      This is interesting that Canaan was mentioned here, out of all the descendants of Ham, since Canaan is the last born son of Ham, as recorded in the order of Ham’s genealogy. [Genesis 10:6]

Y      Canaan was probably named, since it was he who received the curse of Noah, when Ham violated his father. [Genesis 9:20-25]

Y      It was through the three sons of Noah that the entire earth was populated.  The world-wide geographic location of the population of man, from the divisions of the three sons of Noah, is shown in [Genesis 10].
