“God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.”
King James Version (KJV)

The prophetic fulfilment of this scripture was when the Gentiles became part of the Church which is of Christ the root of Shem."Japheth shall dwell in the tents of Shem". This is true when Gentiles become Christian, they recieve the blessings of enlargement. May you blessed and the God of Shem gives ample room as you dwell in the tents of Shem!

What Do You Think of Genesis 9 27 Yes it is spiritually true about Shem s God becoming Japheth s God However It s the tents in question HERE so my thought is to just READ it and then ask WHO s TENTS are they Shem s Now we re getting somewhere I could build a case but I ll let you do that Shem s the LANDLORD to Japheth the TENANT in his God given expansion God shall enlarge Japheth and he shall dwell in the Tents Don t be angry but if YOU would just follow the MONEY throughout HISTORY you will find out whose tents that YOU dwell in If you missed it I m sorry I said it

Are you kidding me? Are not the so called Jews of the Tribe of Ashkenaz which is of Japheth? Or am I reading the Scriptures wrong? The 12 tribes - Judah being one - is of Shem. Two different lineages.
