Morrish Bible Dictionary
1. One of Noah's three sons: he was father of Cush, Mizraim, Phut, and Canaan. Mizraim and Phut, in their descendants, were mainly connected with Egypt. Nothing personally is known of Ham except his disrespectful behaviour when his father was intoxicated, and which drew down the curse of Noah on Canaan. Genesis 5:32; Genesis 6:10; Genesis 9:18,22; Genesis 10:1,6,20; 1 Chronicles 1:4,8 .
2. The dwelling place of the above in Egypt was mostly designated 'the land of Ham.' Psalm 78:51; Psalm 105:23,27; Psalm 106:22 .
3. A place somewhere on the east of the Dead Sea, where the Zuzims dwelt who were smitten by Chedorlaomer. Genesis 14:5 .
4. The Simeonites in searching for pasture for their flocks in the South came to a place where they of Ham had dwelt of old. 1 Chronicles 4:40 . Some suppose these to have been a colony from Egypt; others judge them to have been Canaanitish nomads.
