9:18
The sons of Noah who emerged from the ark were Shem, Ham and Yefeth. Ham was the father of Canaan.
Vayihyu veney-Noach hayotse’im min-hatevah Shem veCham vaYafet veCham hu avi Chena’an.
וַיִּהְיוּ בְנֵי-נֹחַ, הַיֹּצְאִים מִן-הַתֵּבָה–שֵׁם, וְחָם וָיָפֶת; וְחָם, הוּא אֲבִי כְנָעַן.

9:19
These three were Noah’s sons, and from them, the whole world was repopulated.
Shloshah eleh beney-Noach ume’eleh naftsah chol-ha’arets.
שְׁלֹשָׁה אֵלֶּה, בְּנֵי-נֹחַ; וּמֵאֵלֶּה, נָפְצָה כָל-הָאָרֶץ.

9:20
Noah began to be a man of the soil, and he planted a vineyard.
Vayachel Noach ish ha’adamah vayita karem.
וַיָּחֶל נֹחַ, אִישׁ הָאֲדָמָה; וַיִּטַּע, כָּרֶם.

9:21
He drank some of the wine, making himself drunk, and uncovered himself in the tent.
Vayesht min-hayayin vayishkar vayitgal betoch aholoh.
וַיֵּשְׁתְּ מִן-הַיַּיִן, וַיִּשְׁכָּר; וַיִּתְגַּל, בְּתוֹךְ אָהֳלֹה.

9:22
Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father naked, and he told it to his two brothers outside.
Vayar Cham avi Chena’an et ervat aviv vayaged lishney-echav bachuts.
וַיַּרְא, חָם אֲבִי כְנַעַן, אֵת, עֶרְוַת אָבִיו; וַיַּגֵּד לִשְׁנֵי-אֶחָיו, בַּחוּץ.

9:23
Shem and Yefeth took a cloak and placed it on both their shoulders. Walking backwards, they then covered their father’s nakedness. They faced away from him and did not see their father naked.
Vayikach Shem vaYefet et-hasimlah vayasimu al-shchem shneyhem vayelchu achoranit vayechasu et ervat avihem ufneyhem achoranit ve’ervat avihem lo ra’u.
וַיִּקַּח שֵׁם וָיֶפֶת אֶת-הַשִּׂמְלָה, וַיָּשִׂימוּ עַל-שְׁכֶם שְׁנֵיהֶם, וַיֵּלְכוּ אֲחֹרַנִּית, וַיְכַסּוּ אֵת עֶרְוַת אֲבִיהֶם; וּפְנֵיהֶם, אֲחֹרַנִּית, וְעֶרְוַת אֲבִיהֶם, לֹא רָאוּ.

9:24
Noah awoke from his wine-induced sleep, and he realized what his youngest son had done to him.
Vayikets Noach miyeno vayeda et asher-asah lo beno hakatan.
וַיִּיקֶץ נֹחַ, מִיֵּינוֹ; וַיֵּדַע, אֵת אֲשֶׁר-עָשָׂה לוֹ בְּנוֹ הַקָּטָן.

9:25
He said, ‘Cursed is Canaan! He shall be a slave’s slave to his brothers!’
Vayomer arur Kena’an eved avadim yihyeh le’echav.
וַיֹּאמֶר, אָרוּר כְּנָעַן: עֶבֶד עֲבָדִים, יִהְיֶה לְאֶחָיו.

9:26
He then said, ‘Blessed be God, the Lord of Shem! Canaan shall be his slave!
Vayomer baruch Adonay Elohey Shem viyihi Chena’an eved lamo.
וַיֹּאמֶר, בָּרוּךְ יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי שֵׁם; וִיהִי כְנַעַן, עֶבֶד לָמוֹ.

9:27
May God expand Yefeth, but may He dwell in the tents of Shem. Let Canaan be their slave!’
Yaft Elohim leYefet veyishkon be’aholey-Shem viyihi Chena’an eved lamo.
יַפְתְּ אֱלֹהִים לְיֶפֶת, וְיִשְׁכֹּן בְּאָהֳלֵי-שֵׁם; וִיהִי כְנַעַן, עֶבֶד לָמוֹ.

9:28
Noah lived 350 years after the flood.
Vayechi Noach achar hamabul shlosh me’ot shanah vachamishim shanah.
וַיְחִי-נֹחַ, אַחַר הַמַּבּוּל, שְׁלֹשׁ מֵאוֹת שָׁנָה, וַחֲמִשִּׁים שָׁנָה.

9:29
All of Noah’s days were 950 years, and he died.
Vayehi kol-yemey-Noach tsha me’ot shanah vachamishim shanah vayamot.
וַיִּהְיוּ, כָּל-יְמֵי-נֹחַ, תְּשַׁע מֵאוֹת שָׁנָה, וַחֲמִשִּׁים שָׁנָה; וַיָּמֹת.

10:1
These are the chronicles of Noah’s sons, Shem, Ham and Yefeth. Children were born to them after the flood.
Ve’eleh toldot beney Noach Shem Cham vaYafet vayivaledu lahem banim achar hamabul.

From these the isolated nations branched out into their lands. Each had its own language for its families in its nations.
Me’eleh niferedu iyey hagoyim be’artsotam ish lileshono lemishpechotam begoyehem.
מֵאֵלֶּה נִפְרְדוּ אִיֵּי הַגּוֹיִם, בְּאַרְצֹתָם, אִישׁ, לִלְשֹׁנוֹ–לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָם, בְּגוֹיֵהֶם.

וְכוּשׁ, יָלַד אֶת-נִמְרֹד; הוּא הֵחֵל, לִהְיוֹת גִּבֹּר בָּאָרֶץ.

10:9
He was a mighty hunter before God. There is thus a saying, ‘Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before God!’
Hu-hayah gibor-tsa’id lifney Adonay al-ken ye’amar keNimrod gibor tsa’id lifney Adonay.
הוּא-הָיָה גִבֹּר-צַיִד, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה; עַל-כֵּן, יֵאָמַר, כְּנִמְרֹד גִּבּוֹר צַיִד, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה.
