Bible commentary

Discussion for Genesis 10:32

  • It says that is how "the nations divided in the earth after the flood." It doesn't say they have to stay that way... It also doesn't say anything about Ham's generation being cursed. I agree with Lori and J.R.
  • Mariafernanda for verse 32
    Divide- to seperate; to stay apart. Therefore, the Bible says the generations of Japheth have to divide from the generations of Shem or Ham. Whites and hispanics come from the generation of Japheth. Shem's generation are the middle easterns and asians. Ham's generation, the cursed people, consists of African natives. Therefore, the Bible DOES SAY to divide from the decendants of the other two generations.
