THE COVENANT:

And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations.
I do set my bow in the cloud and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud;
And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.'

 

Genesis 9:18-19: 'And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.

HAM'S DISRESPECT OF HIS FATHER, NOAH: Genesis 9:20-23 - 'Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard. When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent. Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness and told his two brothers outside. But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father's nakedness. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father's nakedness.'

 

Ham could have covered his father rather than exposing him to his brothers. He did not respect and honor Noah.

 

NOAH CURSED CANAAN: Genesis 9:24-27 - 'When Noah awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him, he said, "Cursed! be Canaan! The losest of slaves will he be to his brothers."

He also said, "Blessed be the Lord, The God of Shem! May Canaan be the slave of Shem.

May God extend the territory of Japheth;

may Japheth live in the tents of Shem, and may Canaan be his slave."'

 

Noah cursed Canaan, Ham's son, but didn't curse Ham. Perhaps Canaan may have had a part in the disrespect of Noah. The curse indicated that their descendants would be oppressed and under control of other nations.
