How Does the SDA Clear Word Bible Compare to God's Word?

I guess "wine" must be a forbidden word in the SDA Clear Word Bible? Also, apparently "disrespect" is another term for "servant"?


Genesis 9:20-25 (King James Version)

20 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:

21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.

23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.

24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.

25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.


Genesis 9:20-25 (New International Version)

20 Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard.

21 When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent.

23 But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father's nakedness. Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father's nakedness.

 24 When Noah awoke from his wine and found out what his youngest son had done to him,

25 he said, "Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves will he be to his brothers."

Genesis 9:20-25 (SDA Clear Word Bible)

20 After Noah settled down, he planted gardens and vineyards.

21 One day he drank some grape juice that had been sitting for awhile, became drunk and was in his tent naked.

22 When Ham, (the father of Canaan) came into the tent and saw the condition his father was in, he thought it was funny and went and told his brothers.

23 But Shem and Japheth didn't think it was funny. They took a sheet and out of respect for their father walked into the tent backwards covering him without seeing him naked.

24 The next day when Noah came to his senses and heard what had happened and how his younger son had laughed at him, he said,

25 "This act will be like a curse to Ham's descendents. Disrespect will be seen more and more in the disposition of his offspring, beginning with his son Canaan. They will treat others with disrespect, including each other, and in turn be treated with disrespect."
