Genisis 9

What a way to start a new journey. "And God blessed Noah and his sons". That must have been a great feeling. God told Noah that animals were ok to eat. I wonder if they were eating meat before the flood? God did make a stipulation to eating animals. He did say that you are to not eat its blood. the blood is the life source of any animal. The blood is God's becasue He gives life. The covenant that God made with Noah is all things that God only is able to do and uphold. There is no way that Noah can fail at this covenant there is nothing for him to uphold.

Deceendants of Noah

Shem, Ham and Japheth.

Ham was the father of Cannan

From these people the whole earth was poplulated.

Noah began a vineyard. This became a problem for him because he drank to much of his wine and got drunk. After He got drunk Noah laid uncovered in his tent and Ham saw his nakedness, and then told his brothers. Shem and Japheth walked in backwards with a covering over their shoulders in order to cover up their father.

Ham was the youngest son of Noah (vs 24)

vs 25 Why did Noah say "Cursed be Cannan." was he born yet? or did he just make up this name.
He blessed Shem and Japheth and said that Cannan would be their servant

After the flood Noah lived 350 years.
Noah lived 950 years and then he died.
