“older brother.” The KJV and a few other versions read as if Japheth was the oldest, but Shem was. We have learned a lot about Hebrew in the 400 years since the King James version. The text note in the NET First Edition explains the translation: “in Hebrew when a masculine singular definite attributive adjective follows the sequence masculine singular construct noun + proper name, the adjective invariably modifies the noun in construct, not the proper name. Such is the case here.” Thus, the KJV translation, “Japheth the elder” is not the correct way to translate the Hebrew, rather, Shem is said to be the “older brother” of Japheth. (See commentary on Gen. 5:32).

“the nations were separated on the earth after the flood.” This is a summary statement, and it anticipates the spreading of the people over the earth that is started in Genesis 10 with the tower of Babel. There are many summary statements in the Bible that omit details or are placed out of chronological order in order to make a major point (cp. Luke 5:11; 8:37; Acts 18:18).
