Shem, after the flood
After the flood, Noah planted a vineyard and drank from its wine. Getting drunk, Noah was witnessed by Ham, the youngest son, naked inside his tent. Instead of aiding his father, Ham went to his brothers and told what he saw. Shem and Japheth took a garment and approached their father backwards to avoid seeing their father’s nakedness. Noah woke up from the wine and knew what happened. Noah said, “Blessed be the LORD God of Shem, and Canaan shall be his servant. God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant” (Genesis 9:26-27 KJV).
Shem and his generations
Shem is the father of Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram (Genesis 10:22). At the age of one hundred, Shem begat Arphaxad (Genesis 11:10 KJV). Shem lived another five hundred years after he begat Arphaxad and begot other sons and daughters.
