End notes BSF Study Questions Genesis: Lesson 7, Day 3: Genesis 9:24-29
Apparently something had happened to Noah that warranted a curse for all of eternity and posterity.
Ham sinned by Canaan, Ham’s son, was cursed. This is the prophecy Noah reveals. We know God does not punish the son for the sins of the father (although we are all punished by Adam’s sin). We each are personally responsible for our sins and will stand before God to answer for them one day.
Apparently nothing is noteworthy after this incident in Noah’s life to record. Still, Noah is a man of faith by the Hebrew writer in Hebrews 11:7.
