A man of obedience. God commanded him to build the ark, and he did, following God's exact instructions. God blessed Noah, commissioning him to populate and possess the whole earth. Noah planted a vineyard, and his indulgence in intoxicating wine resulted in the breach of modesty causing the Ham issue.
meaning "He found life", presumably in reference to the gift of immortality given him by the gods after he survives the flood in the Babylonian Epic of Gilgamesh- another telling of the great flood. He is the wise king of a Sumerian city-state, and in the story, does exactly as Noah does in the Bible.
Meaning "To be high"- staged towers- 25 have been found- may be later types of the Babel Tower
