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 Madai,
and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and
4 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish,
Kittim, and Dodanim.
5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided
in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their
6 And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut,
7 And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and
Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtecha: and the sons of Raamah; 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
Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,
12 And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is
a great city.
13 And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim,
14 And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came
Philistim,) and Caphtorim.
15 And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth,
16 And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the
17 And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,
18 And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the
Hamathite: and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread
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 Zeboim, even unto Lasha.
20 These are the sons of Ham, after their
families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their
21 Unto Shem also, the father of all the children
of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children
22 The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and
Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.
23 And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and
Gether, and Mash.
24 And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.
25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of
one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his
brothers name was Joktan.
26 And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and
Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,
27 And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,
28 And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,
29 And Ophir, and Havilah, 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.
