Comments

Protestants may interpret it as a prophecy that Russia and Greece will convert to Protestant religion (probably under influence of black people from Africa). And then people of all world will be converted what is enough to complete Christ's task.

God calling Noah "my son" may indicate that Noah was saved in modern Protestant sense of this word. --Victor Porton (talk) 13:05, 6 November 2014 (MST)
