SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:22

Y Cam, padre de CanaŠn, vio la desnudez de su padre, y lo dijo a sus dos hermanos que estaban fuera.

Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 9:22

Verse 22. - 24. And
Ham, the father of Canaan, &c.] There is no occasion to enter into any detail here; the sacred text is circumstantial enough. Ham, and very probably his son Canaan, had treated their father on this occasion with contempt or reprehensible levity. Had Noah not been innocent, as my exposition supposes him, God would not have endued him with the spirit of prophecy on this occasion, and testified such marked disapprobation of their conduct. The conduct of Shem and Japheth was such as became pious and affectionate children, who appear to have been in the habit of treating their father with decency, reverence, and obedient respect. On the one the spirit of prophecy (not the incensed father) pronounces a curse: on the others the same spirit (not parental tenderness) pronounces a blessing. These things had been just as they afterwards occurred had Noah never spoken. God had wise and powerful reasons to induce him to sentence the one to perpetual servitude, and to allot to the others prosperity and dominion. Besides, the curse pronounced on Canaan neither fell immediately upon himself nor on his worthless father, but upon the Canaanites; and from the history we have of this people, in Lev. xviii. 6, 7, 24, 29, 30, Leviticus xx. 9, 22-24, 26; and Deut. ix. 4; xii. 31, we may ask, Could the curse of God fall more deservedly on any people than on these? Their profligacy was great, but it was not the effect of the curse; but, being foreseen by the Lord, the curse was the effect of their conduct. But even this curse does not exclude them from the possibility of obtaining salvation; it extends not to the soul and to eternity, but merely to their bodies and to time; though, if they continued to abuse their liberty, resist the Holy Ghost, and refuse to be saved on God's terms, then the wrath of Divine justice must come upon them to the uttermost. How many, even of these, repented, we cannot tell.

Matthew Henry Commentary

Verses 18-23 - The
drunkenness of Noah is recorded in the Bible, with that fairnes which is found only in the Scripture, as a case and proof of huma weakness and imperfection, even though he may have been surprised int the sin; and to show that the best of men cannot stand upright, unles they depend upon Divine grace, and are upheld thereby. Ham appears to have been a bad man, and probably rejoiced to find his father in a unbecoming situation. It was said of Noah, that he was perfect in his generations, ch. 6:9; but this is meant of sincerity, not of a sinles perfection. Noah, who had kept sober in drunken company, is now drun in sober company. Let him that thinks he stands, take heed lest he fall. We have need to be very careful when we use God's good creature plentifully, lest we use them to excess, Lu 21:34. The consequence of Noah's sin was shame. Observe here the great evil of the sin of drunkenness. It discovers men; what infirmities they have, they betra when they are drunk; and secrets are then easily got out of them Drunken porters keep open gates. It disgraces men, and exposes them to contempt. As it shows them, so it shames them. Men say and do that when drunken, which, when sober, they would blush to think of. Notice the care of Shem and Japheth to cover their father's shame. There is mantle of love to be thrown over the faults of all, 1Pe 4:8. Besid that, there is a robe of reverence to be thrown over the faults of parents and other superiors. The blessing of God attends on those wh honour their parents, and his curse lights especially on those wh dishonour them.
