Notes/References:

 

Thus taught Noah to the children of Adam, even all them who had desires to understand great wisdom. And after seven years he divided them into four companies, and over each he set one of his sons, and their names were Shem the elder, Japheth, Ham and Cimbri.

And he commanded them straightly to travel forth unto every distant land, that wherever they should find the Enoshahim they might teach unto them the words of God, that they might not be made to fear concerning the coming forth of the spirits of God unto them.

Therefore, to all who should receive to themselves the breath of God, even unto them would God establish the way whereby the children of men should be made one with the house of Adam.

That whosoever should walk in the ways of godliness, to them would the promise be given whereby they should receive unto their souls the adoption wherewith they should become the children of God.

Now Noah desired that every kindred, tongue, and people upon the earth should be made as one people by the coming forth of the spirit children of God.

For God, even the Ancient of Days, desired that there should be but one Lord and one shepherd over all the earth.

So Noah sent forth his sons throughout all the lands of the earth, and with them also went the sons and daughters of Adam who desired to do the works of God among the children of men.

Beginnings 23:4-10

 

Now Ham went forth to the lands of Egypt, and they tarried there among a people which he had never seen before, for they were dark of skin and gentle in their ways.

And Ham, the son of Noah, inquired of the Lord concerning them, for they were not like the other sons of men because of the blackness of their skin.

And the Lord spoke unto Ham, saying: “Why have you thought to judge by the seeing of the eyes alone? Behold, I the Lord, look upon the heart to see if there be any good thing therein.

Therefore have I judged the worthiness of all men, that even all should be made of one house before the Lord God, that there should not be even one to escape the mercies of the Holy One.

So Ham dwelt in the land of Egypt, and he and all the sons and daughters of Adam taught the children of men concerning the God of Heaven, that they might possess unto themselves a knowledge of his mercy and grace towards them.

Beginnings 23:14-18

 

Now the ways of men became divided also, for they no longer spoke the same language. For in the beginning the sons of Noah spoke the language of Adam, which had been preserved throughout many generations, even down to Noah.

But in the days when the children of Shem the elder, Japheth, Ham and Cimbri moved over all the face of the earth, to dwell among a diverse people, they did mix the language of others with their own. And after many years their language was no longer pure.

And the priesthood which Noah had confirmed upon the sons of his loins began to diminish from the earth because of great wickedness. And ignorance and bestiality entered into the hearts of men.
