The Japhethites 10:2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech and Tiras. 10:3 The sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Riphath and Togarmah. 10:4 The sons of Javan: Elishah, Tarshish, the Kittim and the Rodanim. 10:5 (From these the maritime peoples spread out into their territories by their clans within their nations, each with its own language.) The Hamites 10:6 The sons of Ham: Cush, Mizraim, Put and Canaan. 10:7 The sons of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah and Sabteca. The sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan. 10:8 Cush was the father of Nimrod, who grew to be a mighty warrior on the earth. 10:9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord ; that is why it is said, 'Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the Lord.' 10:10 The first centers of his kingdom were Babylon, Erech, Akkad and Calneh, in Shinar. 10:11 From that land he went to Assyria, where he built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah 10:12 and Resen, which is between Nineveh and Calah; that is the great city. 10:13 Mizraim was the father of the Ludites, Anamites, Lehabites, Naphtuhites, 10:14 Pathrusites, Casluhites (from whom the Philistines came) and Caphtorites. 10:15 Canaan was the father of Sidon his firstborn, and of the Hittites, 10:16 Jebusites, Amorites, Girgashites, 10:17 Hivites, Arkites, Sinites, 10:18 Arvadites, Zemarites and Hamathites. 10:19 and the borders of Canaan reached from Sidon toward Gerar as far as Gaza, and then toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha. 10:20 These are the sons of Ham by their clans and languages, in their territories and nations. The Semites 10:21 Sons were also born to Shem, whose older brother was Japheth; Shem was the ancestor of all the sons of Eber. 10:22 The sons of Shem: Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud and Aram. 10:23 The sons of Aram: Uz, Hul, Gether and Meshech. 10:24 Arphaxad was the father of Shelah, and Shelah the father of Eber. 10:25 Two sons were born to Eber: One was named Peleg, because in his time the earth was divided; his brother was named Joktan. 10:26 Joktan was the father of Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 10:27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 10:28 Obal, Abimael, Sheba, 10:29 Ophir, Havilah and Jobab. All these were sons of Joktan. 10:30 The region where they lived stretched from Mesha toward Sephar, in the eastern hill country. 10:31 These are the sons of Shem by their clans and languages, in their territories and nations. 10:32 These are the clans of Noah's sons, according to their lines of descent, within their nations. From these the nations spread out over the earth after the flood.
