Bible commentary

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.


Discussion for Genesis 9

  • Irene123
    V. 19 -" ..... and of them ('them' referring to Noah's sons, not Noah) was the whole earth overspread". God doesn't mention Noah having any more children. Nor are we to 'speculate' on whether he did or not.
  • Irene123
    I do not understand v. 22 - nor do I have any tho'ts on it. But - I do know you cannot later read Lev. 20:11 and 'see' that this incest is the answer. One scripture has nothing to do with the other; there is no corroborating scripture to connect the two.
  • Sakana
    Leviticus 20:11 will make it very clear what Ham did and why Noah cursed the offspring. Shem and Japheth covered up their mother. "And the man that lieth with his father's wife hath uncovered his father's nakedness" (The very idea that a son simply seeing his father naked would be that big a deal as to curse a grandson is ridiculous.)
  • ASK
    There was no wine in the Ark. According to verse 20 Noah became a husbandman (husbandman means one who cultivates the land ,a farmer). And planted a vineyard verse 21 said he drank of the wine and was drunk,in the nude. Noah cursed only one son the youngest Ham, because when Noah woke up,he realized what Ham did to him, verse 24.its a shame
  • Dennis
    verse 20 and 21 tells where he got the wine probably didn't get drunk immediately might have been a year or so just goes to show us what that stuff does to us even the greatest can be brought down by it the bible tells us to stay away from it
  • Irene123
    To Netlace - You have done the same thing you have said I did. Nothing in Gen. says the 'wine' from the ark. It says nothing about 'wine' - fermented or not and nothing about grapes. How do you know there was wine on the ark? This is just an observation; no judging; please believe that.
