Genesis 9: 20-29


Chapter 9

20 Now Noah, a man of the soil, was the first to plant a vineyard.

21 When he drank some of the wine, he became drunk and lay naked inside his tent.

22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness, and he told his two brothers outside about it.

23 Shem and Japheth, however, took a robe, and holding it on their backs, they walked backward and covered their father's nakedness; since their faces were turned the other way, they did not see their father's nakedness.

24 When Noah woke up from his drunkenness and learned what his youngest son had done to him,

25 he said: "Cursed be Caanan! The lowest of slaves shall he be to his brothers."

26 4 He also said: "Blessed be the LORD, the God of Shem! Let Canaan be his slave.

27 5 May God expand Japheth, so that he dwells among the tents of Shem; and let Canaan be his slave."

28 Noah lived three hundred and fifty years after the flood.

29 The whole lifetime of Noah was nine hundred and fifty years; then he died.

Reflection: They really lived very long lives back then. 950 years old. He lived long enough to see the world reborn and to be betrayed by his own children. How sad. Our world still smuggles with understanding nakedness. We look at the human body in a manner that must make our Lord scream. We are created in His image and likeness. In a way we must look like him. Yet we laugh at our bodies? I hope and pray that I have raised my children to not laugh at my expense but to enjoy life with me.
