Bible Names N-Z : Noah


Noah in Wikipedia Noah (or Noe, Noyach; Hebrew: נֹחַ, נוֹחַ, Modern Noaẖ Tiberian Nōăḥ; Arabic: نوح Nūḥ; Greek: Νωέ) was, according to the Bible, the tenth and last of the antediluvian Patriarchs; and a prophet and messenger according to the Qur'an. The biblical story of Noah is contained in the book of Genesis, chapters 6 9; he is also found in the passage 'Noah's sons", while the Qur'an has an entire sura named after and devoted to his story, with other references elsewhere. In the Genesis account, Noah saves his family and representatives of all animals in groups of two or seven from the flood. In the Islamic account, a group of 72 others are also saved.[1] He receives a covenant from God, and his sons repopulate the earth. While the Deluge and Noah's Ark are the best-known elements of the Noah tradition, Noah is also mentioned in Genesis as the "first husbandman" and possibly the inventor of wine, as he planted the first vineyard. The account of Noah is the subject of much elaboration in the later Abrahamic traditions, and was immensely influential in Western culture...
