Genesis 9

From verse 2, we can see what is the main motivational force god will use:
The fear of you and the terror of you will be on every beast of the earth and on every bird of the sky; with everything that creeps on the ground, and all the fish of the sea, into your hand they are given.

God blessed Noah so that every beast of the earth will be fearful and be terrified by Noah. Is it the same tactic god uses towards man? God wants man to be fearful and terrified by him. For an all-loving god, there would be other ways to gain the respect from man, right?

Verse 22:
Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father ...

What is the big deal of seeing the nakedness of your father? Why while Ham saw the nakedness, yet Noah cursed Canaan?

What is kind of justice the bible trying to convey?
