Genesis 10



1 αὗται δὲ αἱ γενέσεις τῶν υἱῶν νωε σημ χαμ ιαφεθ καὶ ἐγενήθησαν αὐτοῖς υἱοὶ μετὰ τὸν κατακλυσμόν

2 υἱοὶ ιαφεθ γαμερ καὶ μαγωγ καὶ μαδαι καὶ ιωυαν καὶ ελισα καὶ θοβελ καὶ μοσοχ καὶ θιρας

3 καὶ υἱοὶ γαμερ ασχαναζ καὶ ριφαθ καὶ θοργαμα

4 καὶ υἱοὶ ιωυαν ελισα καὶ θαρσις κίτιοι ῥόδιοι

5 ἐκ τούτων ἀφωρίσθησαν νῆσοι τῶν ἐθνῶν ἐν τῇ γῇ αὐτῶν ἕκαστος κατὰ γλῶσσαν ἐν ταῖς φυλαῖς αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν αὐτῶν

6 υἱοὶ δὲ χαμ χους καὶ μεσραιμ φουδ καὶ χανααν

7 υἱοὶ δὲ χους σαβα καὶ ευιλα καὶ σαβαθα καὶ ρεγμα καὶ σαβακαθα υἱοὶ δὲ ρεγμα σαβα καὶ δαδαν

8 χους δὲ ἐγέννησεν τὸν νεβρωδ οὗτος ἤρξατο εἶναι γίγας ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

9 οὗτος ἦν γίγας κυνηγὸς ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ διὰ τοῦτο ἐροῦσιν ὡς νεβρωδ γίγας κυνηγὸς ἐναντίον κυρίου

10 καὶ ἐγένετο ἀρχὴ τῆς βασιλείας αὐτοῦ βαβυλὼν καὶ ορεχ καὶ αρχαδ καὶ χαλαννη ἐν τῇ γῇ σεννααρ

11 ἐκ τῆς γῆς ἐκείνης ἐξῆλθεν ασσουρ καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν τὴν νινευη καὶ τὴν ροωβωθ πόλιν καὶ τὴν χαλαχ

12 καὶ τὴν δασεμ ἀνὰ μέσον νινευη καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον χαλαχ αὕτη ἡ πόλις ἡ μεγάλη

13 καὶ μεσραιμ ἐγέννησεν τοὺς λουδιιμ καὶ τοὺς ενεμετιιμ καὶ τοὺς λαβιιμ καὶ τοὺς νεφθαλιιμ

14 καὶ τοὺς πατροσωνιιμ καὶ τοὺς χασλωνιιμ ὅθεν ἐξῆλθεν ἐκεῖθεν φυλιστιιμ καὶ τοὺς καφθοριιμ

15 χανααν δὲ ἐγέννησεν τὸν σιδῶνα πρωτότοκον καὶ τὸν χετταῖον

16 καὶ τὸν ιεβουσαῖον καὶ τὸν αμορραῖον καὶ τὸν γεργεσαῖον

17 καὶ τὸν ευαῖον καὶ τὸν αρουκαῖον καὶ τὸν ασενναῖον

18 καὶ τὸν ἀράδιον καὶ τὸν σαμαραῖον καὶ τὸν αμαθι καὶ μετὰ τοῦτο διεσπάρησαν αἱ φυλαὶ τῶν χαναναίων

19 καὶ ἐγένοντο τὰ ὅρια τῶν χαναναίων ἀπὸ σιδῶνος ἕως ἐλθεῖν εἰς γεραρα καὶ γάζαν ἕως ἐλθεῖν σοδομων καὶ γομορρας αδαμα καὶ σεβωιμ ἕως λασα

20 οὗτοι υἱοὶ χαμ ἐν ταῖς φυλαῖς αὐτῶν κατὰ γλώσσας αὐτῶν ἐν ταῖς χώραις αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν αὐτῶν

21 καὶ τῷ σημ ἐγενήθη καὶ αὐτῷ πατρὶ πάντων τῶν υἱῶν εβερ ἀδελφῷ ιαφεθ τοῦ μείζονος

22 υἱοὶ σημ αιλαμ καὶ ασσουρ καὶ αρφαξαδ καὶ λουδ καὶ αραμ καὶ καιναν

23 καὶ υἱοὶ αραμ ως καὶ ουλ καὶ γαθερ καὶ μοσοχ

24 καὶ αρφαξαδ ἐγέννησεν τὸν καιναν καὶ καιναν ἐγέννησεν τὸν σαλα σαλα δὲ ἐγέννησεν τὸν εβερ

25 καὶ τῷ εβερ ἐγενήθησαν δύο υἱοί ὄνομα τῷ ἑνὶ φαλεκ ὅτι ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις αὐτοῦ διεμερίσθη ἡ γῆ καὶ ὄνομα τῷ ἀδελφῷ αὐτοῦ ιεκταν

26 ιεκταν δὲ ἐγέννησεν τὸν ελμωδαδ καὶ τὸν σαλεφ καὶ ασαρμωθ καὶ ιαραχ

27 καὶ οδορρα καὶ αιζηλ καὶ δεκλα

28 καὶ αβιμεηλ καὶ σαβευ

29 καὶ ουφιρ καὶ ευιλα καὶ ιωβαβ πάντες οὗτοι υἱοὶ ιεκταν

30 καὶ ἐγένετο ἡ κατοίκησις αὐτῶν ἀπὸ μασση ἕως ἐλθεῖν εἰς σωφηρα ὄρος ἀνατολῶν

31 οὗτοι υἱοὶ σημ ἐν ταῖς φυλαῖς αὐτῶν κατὰ γλώσσας αὐτῶν ἐν ταῖς χώραις αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν αὐτῶν

32 αὗται αἱ φυλαὶ υἱῶν νωε κατὰ γενέσεις αὐτῶν κατὰ τὰ ἔθνη αὐτῶν ἀπὸ τούτων διεσπάρησαν νῆσοι τῶν ἐθνῶν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς μετὰ τὸν κατακλυσμόν


Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 10      

Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff

These chapters - with all the "begats" - don't seem to add a lot to the Bible reading experience. But... guess what! They're actually kind of interesting on the inside. This chapter actually describes the spread, and then the spiritual decline, of the Ancient Church.

In his exegesis, or explanation, of the kinds of religious thinking that the various people represent, Swedenborg provides some insight into human history, and into patterns of thought in our own lives, too.

Here are some excerpts from Swedenborg's "Arcana Coelestia":

AC 1130. The subject treated of throughout this whole chapter is the Ancient Church, and its propagation (verse 1).

AC 1131. They who had external worship corresponding to internal are the "sons of Japheth" (verse 2). They who had worship more remote from internal are the "sons of Gomer and Javan" (verses 3, 4). And they who had worship still more remote are the "isles of the nations" (verse 5).

AC 1132. They who cultivated knowledges, memory-knowledges, and rituals, and separated them from things internal, are the "sons of Ham" (verse 6). They who cultivated the knowledges of spiritual things are the "sons of Cush;" and they who cultivated the knowledges of celestial things are the "sons of Raamah" (verse 7).

AC 1133. Those treated of who have external worship in which are interior evils and falsities, "Nimrod" being such worship (verses 8, 9). The evils in such worship (verse 10). The falsities in such worship (verses 11, 12).

AC 1134. Concerning those who form for themselves new kinds of worship out of memory-knowledges by means of reasonings (verses 13, 14); and concerning those who make mere memory-knowledge of the knowledges of faith (verse 14).

AC 1135. Concerning external worship without internal, which is "Canaan," and the derivations of this worship (verses 15 to 18); and its extension (verses 19, 20).

AC 1136. Concerning internal worship, which is "Shem," and its extension even to the second Ancient Church (verse 21). Concerning internal worship and its derivations, which being from charity, are derivations of wisdom, of intelligence, of memory-knowledge, and of knowledges, which are signified by the "nations" (verses 22 to 24).

AC 1137. Concerning a certain church which arose in Syria, instituted by Eber, which is to be called the second Ancient Church, the internal worship of which is "Peleg," the external "Joktan" (verse 25). Its rituals are the nations named in verses 26 to 29. The extension of this church (verse 30).

AC 1138. That there were different kinds of worship in the Ancient Church, in accordance with the genius of each nation (verses 31, 32).
