The Bible and slavery Genesis narrative about the Curse of Ham has often been held to be an aetiological story, giving a reason for the enslavement of the Canaanites. The word ham is very similar to the Hebrew word for hot, which is cognate with an Egyptian word kem, meaning black used to refer to Egypt itself, in reference to the fertile black soil along the Nile valley. Although many scholars therefore view Ham as an eponym used to represent Egypt in the Table of Nations ,  a number of Christians throughout history, including Origen  and the Cave of Treasures ,  have argued for the alternate proposition that Ham represents all black people , his name symbolising their dark skin colour;  pro-slavery advocates, from Eutychius of Alexandria  and John Philoponus ,  to American pro-slavery apologists,  have therefore occasionally interpreted the narrative as a condemnation of all black people to slavery. Slaves were to be treated as part of an extended family;  they were allowed to celebrate the Sukkot festival,  and expected to honour Shabbat. This 7th-year manumission could be voluntarily renounced, which would be signified, as in other Ancient Near Eastern nations,  by the slave gaining a ritual ear piercing ;  after such renunciation, the individual was enslaved forever and not released at the Jubilee .
