Genesis 9and said unto them The Noahic Covenant. The elements are: (1) The relation of man to the earth under the Adamic Covenant is confirmed (See Scofield "Genesis 8:21") (2) The order of nature is confirmed (Genesis 8:22) (3) Human government is established (Genesis 9:1-6) (4) Earth is secured against another universal judgment by water Genesis 8:21; 9:11 (5) A prophetic declaration is made that from Ham will descend an inferior and servile posterity Genesis 9:24,25. (6) A prophetic declaration is made that Shem will have a peculiar relation to Jehovah Genesis 9:26,27. All divine revelation is through Semitic men, and Christ, after the flesh, descends from Shem. (7) A prophetic declaration is made that from Japheth will descend the "enlarged" races Genesis 9:27. Government, science, and art, speaking broadly, are and have been Japhetic, so that history is the indisputable record of the exact fulfilment of these declarations.
