He was one of the eight people who boarded the ark and survived the great flood (Genesis 7:13 KJV). It is believed that the name Japheth means “wide spreading” or “enlargement.” This may also explain why Noah said that “God shall enlarge Japheth” (Genesis 9:27 KJV). Japheth is the father of Gome, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Mesech, and Tiras. The number of years Japheth lived is uncertain. However, according to the Timeline of the Bible, Japheth was born around 2450 BC.
