1: Now this is the history of the generations of the sons of Noah and of Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Sons were born to them after the flood. 2: The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. 3: The sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah. 4: The sons of Javan: Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. 5: Of these were the islands of the nations divided in their lands, everyone after his language, after their families, in their nations. 6: The sons of Ham: Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. 7: The sons of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan. 8: Cush became the father of Nimrod. He began to be a mighty one in the earth. 9: He was a mighty hunter before Yahweh. Therefore it is said, "Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before Yahweh." 10: The beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11: Out of that land he went into Assyria, and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah, 12: and Resen between Nineveh and Calah (the same is the great city). 13: Mizraim became the father of Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, 14: Pathrusim, Casluhim (which the Philistines descended from), and Caphtorim. 15: Canaan became the father of Sidon (his firstborn), Heth, 16: the Jebusite, the Amorite, the Girgashite, 17: the Hivite, the Arkite, the Sinite, 18: the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. Afterward the families of the Canaanites were spread abroad. 19: The border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as you go toward Gerar, to Gaza; as you go toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, to Lasha. 20: These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their languages, in their lands, in their nations. 21: To Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the elder brother of Japheth, to him also were children born. 22: The sons of Shem: Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud, and Aram. 23: The sons of Aram: Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash. 24: Arpachshad became the father of Shelah. Shelah became the father of Eber. 25: To Eber were born two sons. The name of the one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided. His brother's name was Joktan. 26: Joktan became the father of Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27: Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28: Obal, Abimael, Sheba, 29: Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All these were the sons of Joktan. 30: Their dwelling was from Mesha, as you go toward Sephar, the mountain of the east. 31: These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their languages, in their lands, after their nations. 32: These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations. Of these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
