Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 9:26

_ _ Blessed be the Lord God of Shem — rather, “Blessed of Jehovah, my God, be Shem,” — an intimation that the descendants of Shem should be peculiarly honored in the service of the true God, His Church being for ages established among them (the Jews), and of them, concerning the flesh, Christ came. They got possession of Canaan, the people of that land being made their “servants” either by conquest, or, like the Gibeonites, by submission [Joshua 9:25].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 9:24-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 9:26

The God of Shem — All blessings are included in this. This was the blessing conferred on Abraham and his seed, the God of heaven was not ashamed to be called their God, Hebrews 11:16. Shem is sufficiently recompensed for his respect to his father by this, that the Lord himself puts this honour upon him to be his God; which is a sufficient recompense for all our services and all our sufferings for his name.
