During my quest to read the entire Bible and I found the most wild story in Genesis 9 oah, a farmer, was the first to plant a vineyard. He drank from its wine, got drunk and passed out, naked in his tent. Ham, the father of Canaan, saw that his father was naked and told his two brothers who were outside the tent. Shem and Japheth took a cloak, held it between them from their shoulders, walked backwards and covered their father’s nakedness, keeping their faces turned away so they did not see their father’s exposed body.
So Noe (Noe is of Hebrew origin and means Noah. )he got drunk and naked in the privacy of his tent. It’s not what you expect of a great biblical hero, but it’s a very human reaction.
I’m thinking our little Noah Elohim will fit right in with his new family!
Today is a very sleepy day for me. Noah will be just 3weeks tomorrow & he is now being a party dude of the sorts. So it seemed fitting to talk about him while he’s asleep. Although my dad always told me to sleep while the baby is sleeping. Smart man isn’t he?
We all love the story about Noah. Those of us that were brought up in church from our childhood have heard the story of Noah a number of times in our lives. It has become a familiar story to us, most of us could tell from memory. And yet maybe it is that familiarity of the story that caused me to miss some very exciting facts about the story. Here are just a few more things I discovered this morning.
His father Lamech named him nûaḥ (the final ḥ is a more guttural sound than the English h), saying, “This same shall comfort us in our work and in the toil of our hands, which cometh from the ground which the LORD hath cursed.”[
His life of 950 years, exemplified obedience.
Hard to believe right???? Who’d knew. Here, do your own research like I did!
Have a great Wednesday ya’ll, I’m heading back to bed now- toodles! -QC SuperMom
