Then Shem and Japheth took a cloak and placed it over both their shoulders, and walking backward, they covered their father’s nakedness. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father naked.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 9:24 -

When Noah awoke from his drinking and learned what his youngest son had done to him,

he said:

Canaan is cursed.

He will be the lowest of slaves to his brothers.

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem;

Let Canaan be[fn] Shem’s slave.

CSB Footnotes
Lit are given in your hand
Lit  And your blood belonging to your life I will seek
Lit any human; from the hand of a man his brother I will seek the life of the human.
Lit and creatures of all flesh
Lit creatures of all flesh
Or Noah began to be a farmer and planted
As a wish or prayer; others interpret the verbs in vv. 26-27 as prophecy: Canaan will be . . .
In Hb, the name Japheth sounds like the word “extend.”
