did Noah have daughters?

I read another question that said he slept with his daughters. I know Lot's daughters got him drunk and slept with him but I don't remember hearing anythinig like this wiith Noah. I just read gen. 8: 9-11 gen. 9:1-11 gen. 9:18-28 and gen. 10: 1 and skimmed the rest. I don't see anything about daughters. I am reading the NRSV

  • no, he had 3 sons. His son's had wives, so he had daughters-in-law.

  • There is a lot of speculation that Noah had drunken, passed-out sex with one of his sons, though. Or that the son had sex with him in that state.

    And there are a lot more sites that consider it, too.  Not just these.

  • Noah did not have daughters, and to rachiesmom, the Bible clearly says that his son saw him naked and covered him up. Noah got drunk because after the flood, things fermented WAAAY faster than before the flood, so that was an accident. His son walked in a found him naked, passed out, and was embarrassed for him, so he covered him up. It's very simple in the KJV Bible.

  • the "speculation" is not in the Bible. He son's backed up and covered him as to not see his nakedness.

  • Most likely he did have daughters. But in biblical times and literature, daughters are unimportant. Unless they have a significant contribution to Israelite history like Moses prophetic sister Miriam. Jesus had sisters but they are not numbered or named. Lot was the one who slept with his daughters. Noah was the one who was supposedly 'sodomized' by one of his sons. Apparently the flooding of the earth DIDN'T cleanse it of all sin or evil. Millions of dead men, women, children and babies for nothing!
