Many interpretive models of the controversial passage of Genesis 9, presume that the focus is on something shameful done by Ham, one of Noah's sons. He performed an act so embarrassing toward himself and his clan, that it is not even disclosed in the actual text. It is hidden in plain sight, presenting a sort of subtext which qualified, academic theologians tell us they can decipher. Often, these models, while they present interesting arguments on behalf of the view that Genesis chapter 9, verses 20 to 27, relates to a horribly shameful act by Ham, perhaps something even incestuous, overlooks an apparent emphasis within the text upon Noah's acts.
