Wesley's Notes for Genesis 9:11


9:11 There shall not any more be a flood - God had drowned the world once, and still it is as provoking as ever; yet he will never drown it any more, for he deals not with us according to our sins. This promise of God keeps the sea and clouds in their decreed place, and sets them gates and bars, Hitherto they shall come, #Job 38:10|,11. If the sea should flow but for a few days, as it doth twice every day for a few hours, what desolations would it make? So would the clouds, if such showers as we have sometimes seen, were continued long. But God by flowing seas, and sweeping rains, shews what he could do in wrath; and yet by preserving the earth from being deluged between both, shews what he can do in mercy, and will do in truth.

    To Susan on Genesis ch. 9 -- I agree with you on that .................

    Romans 10:17. All sin and fall short of the Glory of God. Noah was a good man but sinned by getting drunk. His son Ham took advantage of his fathers drunkeness and sinned His other sons knew this was wrong and covered their father, being careful to not even get a glimpse. All sin but all faithful can be forgiven John 3:16
  • Rebecca Joan
    I cannot understand why Noah cursed Ham. Did he not suppose to go in his fsther's tent. Did he know his father was naked and wanted to embarrassed him. After God spear Noah and his family, why did he got so drunk until he was out of his cloths. When the ark came back to Israel David dance out of his cloths he was worshiping David bless his people. Why did Noah got drunk and then curse his son.
  • Lu2677
    V.9 Noah drank wine and was drunk, it is not figuratively speaking! V.24 Noah awoke from his wine. There is no context in these 2 v. of devine ecstacy or cultivating truth.
  • Seeker
    Noah's drunkenness describes figuratively a state of divine ecstacy, since his planting of a vineyard implies his cultivation of Truth and Holiness.
  • Marcelo
    Noah cursed his son Ham, who was the predestinated to be the father of Canaan, and Ham sinned when he saw the nakedness of Noah, so that was the reason for what Canaan was cursed, for this reason Canaan become the servants of servants of his brethren. Ham and his descendants were the ones to replenish the earth of all that regions of Canaan throughout Africa, so Japheth in the tends of Shem.
