Genesis 10



1 And these are the births of the sons of Noaḥ: Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and to 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 Togarmah.

4 And the sons of Javan: Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

5 From these the islands of the nations were separated in their lands, a man according·​·to his tongue, according·​·to their families in their nations.

6 And the sons of Ham: Cush, and Mizraim, and Put, and Canaan.

7 And the sons of Cush: Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabteca. And the sons of Raamah: Sheba, and Dedan.

8 And Cush begot Nimrod. He began to be a mighty·​·man in the earth.

9 He was mighty in hunting before Jehovah. Therefore it was said, As Nimrod, mighty in hunting before Jehovah.

10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

11 From that land went·​·out Asshur*, and built Nineveh, and the city of Rehoboth, and Calah,

12 and Resen, between Nineveh and Calah; this is that great city.

13 And Mizraim begot Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,

14 and Pathrusim, and Casluhim, from whom went·​·out the Philistines, and Caphtorim.

15 And Canaan begot Zidon, his firstborn, and Heth,

16 and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgashite,

17 and the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,

18 and the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. And after them were the families of the Canaanites scattered.

19 And the border of the Canaanites was from Zidon, coming toward Gerar, even·​·to Gaza; coming toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and Admah and Zeboim, even·​·to Lasha.

20 These are the sons of Ham, according·​·to their families, according·​·to their tongues, in their lands, in their nations.

21 And there was born to Shem also; he is the father of all the sons of Eber; the elder brother of Japheth.

22 The sons of Shem: Elam, and Asshur, and Arpachshad, and Lud, and Aram.

23 And the sons of Aram: Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.

24 And Arpachshad begot Shelach; and Shelach begot Eber.

25 And to Eber were born two sons; the name of the one was Peleg, for in his days was the earth divided; and the name of his brother was Joktan.

26 And Joktan begot 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, in thy coming toward Sephar, the mountain of the east.

31 These are the sons of Shem, according·​·to their families, according·​·to their tongues, in their lands, according·​·to their nations.

32 These are the families of the sons of Noaḥ, according·​·to their births, in their nations; and from these were separated the nations in the earth after the flood.
