Noah's Sons and the Uncovering of Noah (Genesis 9:18 - 9:29) - Bible Blender
Noah had three sons, Shem, Japheth, and Ham (who had a son named Canaan). In the ancient times, seeing your father naked was very bad. It was considered disgraceful to the father. “Honor thy father and mother” was the rule and was so important to their culture, that striking or cursing a parent was punishable by death.
