Chapter 10

Descendants of Noah

1 Now these are the records of the generations of Shem, Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah; and sons were born to them after the flood.

2 aThe sons of Japheth were bGomer and Magog and cMadai and dJavan and Tubal and eMeshech and Tiras.

3 The sons of Gomer were aAshkenaz and 1Riphath and bTogarmah.

4 The sons of Javan were Elishah and aTarshish, Kittim and 1Dodanim.

5 From these the coastlands of the nations 1were separated into their lands, every one according to his language, according to their families, into their nations.

6 aThe sons of Ham were Cush and Mizraim and Put and Canaan.

7 The sons of Cush were aSeba and Havilah and Sabtah and bRaamah and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah were bSheba and cDedan.

8 Now Cush 1became the father of Nimrod; he 2became a mighty one on the earth.

9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the Lord.”

10 The beginning of his kingdom was 1aBabel and Erech and Accad and Calneh, in the land of bShinar.

11 From that land he went forth ainto Assyria, and built Nineveh and Rehoboth-Ir and Calah,

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

13 Mizraim 1became the father of aLudim and Anamim and Lehabim and Naphtuhim

14 and aPathrusim and Casluhim (from which came the Philistines) and Caphtorim.

15 Canaan 1became the father of aSidon, his firstborn, and bHeth

16 and athe 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 afterward the families of the Canaanite were spread abroad.

19 aThe territory of the Canaanite 1extended from Sidon as you go toward Gerar, as far as Gaza; as you go toward bSodom and Gomorrah and Admah and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha.

20 These are the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their languages, by their lands, by their nations.

21 Also to Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, and the 1older brother of Japheth, children were born.

22 aThe sons of Shem were bElam and Asshur and cArpachshad and dLud and Aram.

23 The sons of Aram were aUz and Hul and Gether and Mash.

24 Arpachshad 1became the father of aShelah; and Shelah 1became the father of Eber.

25 aTwo sons were born to Eber; the name of the one was 1Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.

26 Joktan 1became the father of Almodad and Sheleph and Hazarmaveth and Jerah

27 and Hadoram and Uzal and Diklah

28 and 1Obal and Abimael and Sheba

29 and Ophir and Havilah and Jobab; all these were the sons of Joktan.

30 Now their 1settlement 2extended from Mesha as you go toward Sephar, the hill country of the east.

31 These are the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their languages, by their lands, according to their nations.

32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, according to their genealogies, by their nations; and aout of these the nations were separated on the earth after the flood.
