The People of Ham
by Wayne Blank
"the sons of Ham: Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan"
Ham was a son of Noah and his wife (her name is not recorded in the Scriptures):
"And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth." (Genesis 6:10 KJV)
It was from the sons of Noah that the earth was re-populated after the Flood (another proof that the flood was not merely a local event as some claim - see also How Deep Was The Flood?).
"And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark [see also How Big Was Noah's Ark?], were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth ... These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread." (Genesis 9:18-19 KJV)
The early history of the descendants of Ham involved some of the most well-known nations of Bible History.
"And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan [see also The Land Of Canaan]."
Fact Finder: Was Egypt known as "the land of Ham"?
