My purpose in this chapter is to discern any references to the creation or other events of primeval history in these remaining chapters of Genesis and the other books of the Pentateuch. The first specific reference is in Genesis 13:10: “And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt. . ” This was still in the early centuries after the Flood, and quite possibly Shem and Ham were still living.
And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth” (Gen. 9:18). Apparently much later, however, an appendix was inserted, possibly by Shem and Japheth, noting that “Ham is the father of Canaan” (Gen. 9:18). Noah’s Prophecy on His Sons They then went on to add the record of the sad experience that led to a famous Noahic prophecy many years later. First they noted again, “These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread” (Gen. 9:19). By this time, the three families had multiplied and begun to spread out The Lost World 41 from Ararat, but all were descendants of the three sons.
These statements made it clear that the Flood would have to be a worldwide flood, not a local flood, to accomplish such ends. Therefore, a huge ark must be constructed to preserve representatives of all the created kinds of animals for the future world. Such an ark would have been completely unnecessary if the Flood were merely a regional inundation. Noah and the animals could easily have migrated to another region in that case. The dimensions of the ark were given in terms of cubits, with the relative proportions such as to assure optimum stability in riding out the coming floodwaters.
