Shalom and welcome to the Parsha in 60 seconds
Today’s portion is from Genesis 6:9-11:32 it is called Noah
Noah was a righteous man and walked with God. He had three sons. God saw that the world had gone bad.
God tells Noah to build an ark because God would cause a flood. During the building process, all the people TROLLED him. When the flood came Noah, his family and all the animals were in the ark and God shut them in. The rains fell 40 days and 40 nights, the waters destroyed all life and 150 days later the waters receded.
God made a covenant that never again would a flood destroy the earth and set the rainbow in the clouds as a sign.
Noah planted a vineyard, got wasted and was naked within his tent. Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father’s nakedness and told his two brothers. Shem and Japheth placed a cloth on their father, without seeing their father’s nakedness. When Noah woke up he cursed Ham’s son Canaan to become the lowest of slaves to Japheth and Shem. Noah lived to the age of 950 and then died.
Several generations later the earth was populated by many nations.
Everyone on earth spoke the same language and they all decided to make a huge tower. God confounded their speech, so that they could not understand each another, and scattered them over the face of the earth. Thus the city was called Babel.
Nine generations after Shem, Abram married Sarai. Sarai was barren. Abram’s father relocated them to Haran and died.
And that is Noah in 60 seconds.
