Genesis 10

The Descendants of the Sons of Noah
1 Chr. 1.5-23
1  Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah; Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
2  ¶ The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Ma’dai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
3  And the sons of Gomer; Ash’kenaz, and Riphath, and Togar’mah.
4  And the sons of Javan; Eli’shah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Do’danim.
5  By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
6  ¶ And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Miz’ra-im, and Phut, and Canaan.
7  And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Hav’ilah, and Sabtah, and Ra’amah, and Sab’techa: and the sons of Ra’amah; Sheba, and Dedan.
8  And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
9  He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.
10  And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
11  Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nin’eveh, and the city Reho’both, and Calah,
12  and Resen between Nin’eveh and Calah: the same is a great city.
13  And Miz’ra-im begat Ludim, and An’amim, and Le’habim, and Naph’tuhim,
14  and Path’rusim, and Cas’luhim, (out of whom came Phil’istim,) and Caph’torim.
15  ¶ And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth,
16  and the Jeb’usite, and the Amorite, and the Gir’gashite,
17  and the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,
18  and the Ar’vadite, and the Zem’arite, and the Ha’mathite: and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.
19  And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest unto Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zebo’im, even unto Lasha.
20  These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.
21  ¶ Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.
22  The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphax’ad, and Lud, and Aram.
23  And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.
24  And Arphax’ad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.
25  And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; 7 for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.
26  And Joktan begat Almo’dad, and Sheleph, and Ha’zar–ma’veth, and Jerah,
27  and Hador’am, and Uzal, and Diklah,
28  and Obal, and Abim’a-el, and Sheba,
29  and Ophir, and Hav’ilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan.
30  And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar, a mount of the east.
31  These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
32  ¶ These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
