Ham was the youngest of Noah's three sons. His brothers were Shem and Japheth. Ham, along with his parents, his brothers and their wives, were on the Ark during the Great Flood. Ham was the father of Cush, Mizraim, Put and Canaan. One of the descendents of Ham's son Cush is Nimrod, who became the first of the world's kings. Ham's descendents spread abroad in many lands and nations, with many languages (Genesis 10:20). It is believed that most of Ham's descendents settled in Africa.
