But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father’s naked body. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father naked.

También poblaron las regiones de lo que es actualmente el oriente de Europa extendiéndose hasta los límites con el Mar Negro y el Mar Caspio. Incluyendo porciones de Estonia, Letonia, Lituania, Belarús, Ucrania, Georgia, Kirguistán, Uzbekistán y Turkmenistán. Quizás, ocupando todo el territorio de lo que es actualmente Kazajstán.
