C. 挪亞出方舟 (創9:22-29)

迦南的父親含看見他父親赤身,就到外邊告訴他兩個弟兄。於是閃和雅弗拿件衣服搭在肩上,倒退著進去,給他父親蓋上;他們背著臉就看不見父親的赤身。挪亞醒了酒,知道小兒子向他所作的事,就說:迦南當受咒詛,必給他弟兄作奴僕的奴僕;又說:耶和華─閃的神是應當稱頌的!願迦南作閃的奴僕。願神使雅弗擴張,使他住在閃的帳棚裡;又願迦南作他的奴僕。洪水以後,挪亞又活了三百五十年。挪亞共活了九百五十歲就死了。

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. When Noah awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him, he said, "Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves will he be to his brothers."

創世記9:18先提「挪亞的三個兒子就是閃、含、雅弗,」再提「含是迦南的父親。」9:22節先提「迦南的父親含,」再提「他兩個弟兄。」顯然迦南與挪亞的三個兒子同列其中。迦南是此處經文的關鍵人物。據猶太拉比的說法,含與他的父親有同性戀的行為,經上說:「洪水以後,他們都生了兒子。」(10:1) 就是暗示原本是「四男四女」,如今是「男多於女」。含使他父親去勢,因此不能再生兒育女。他倒與母親同房生下迦南,迦南是挪亞之妻所生,也可算是挪亞的兒子,但實際上他是含的兒子,挪亞的孫子。迦南既是「亂倫之子」,所以咒詛就臨到他的身上,後來羅得與他兩個女兒所生的兩個兒子也是「亂倫之子」(創19:36-38),咒詛也臨到他們身上,耶和華禁止他們的後裔進入耶和華的殿。(申23:3-6)(尼13:1-2)
