The Wives of Shem, Ham, and Japheth are the wives of the three sons of Noah. All three of the wives along with their husbands, father-in-law, and mother-in-law boarded the ark and started humanity again after the flood. From each of them, came a different nation.
The wives of Shem, Ham, and Japheth are first mentioned by God, when He instructed Noah to take them on the ark with their husbands, and his wife. After the compleation of the ark, they went on it with their husbands and they were spared from death in the flood. They stayed on the ark until the earth was dry, then they went out of the ark and worshiped with Noah, his wife, and his sons.
From the wife of Shem, the nation of Israel was born. This is the genealogy of Shem and his wife from Shem to Abram: Shem begot Arphaxad, Arphaxad begot Salah, Salah begot Eber, Eber begot Peleg, Peleg begot Reu, Reu begot Serug, Serug begot Nahor, Nahor begot Terah, and Terah begot Abram (Abraham), Nahor, and Haran.
From the wife of Ham, the nation of Canaan was born, along with Babel, Erech, Accad, Calneh, Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah, Resen, and the Philistines.
From the wife of Japheth came the coastland peoples of the Gentiles, according to their language, and families into their nations.
