Genesis 10 ©
The spreading of mankind by the three sons of Noah, whose posterity is recounted, together with their habitations; of Japheth, vs. 2. Of Ham, 6. Amongst them there are Nimrod and Asshur, 8, 11. Of Shem, 21.
NOW1 these are the 2generations of the sons of Noah,a Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
The 3sonsb of Japheth; 4Gomer, and 5Magog, and 6Madai, and 7Javan, and 8Tubal, and 9Meshech, and 10Tiras.
And the sons of Gomer; 11Ashkenaz, and 12Riphath, and 13Togarmah.
And the sons of Javan; 14Elishah, and 15Tarshish, 16Kittim, and 17Dodanim.
By these were the 18isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; 19every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
¶And the sons of 20Ham;c21Cush, and 22Mizraim, and 23Phut, and 24Canaan.
And the sons of Cush; 25Seba, and 26Havilah, and 27Sabtah, and 28Raamah, and 29Sabtecha: and the sons of Raamah; 30Sheba, and 31Dedan.
And Cushd begat Nimrod: he began to be a 32mighty one in the earth.
He was a mighty 33hunter 34before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.
And the 35beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of 36Shinar.
37Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded 38Nineveh, and the city 39Rehoboth, and Calah,
And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is 40a great city.
And Mizraim begat 41Ludim, and 42Anamim, and 43Lehabim, and 44Naphtuhim,
And 45Pathrusim, and 46Casluhim, (47out of whom 48came 49Philistim,) and 50Caphtorim.
¶And Canaan begat 51Sidon his firstborn, and 52Heth,
53And the 54Jebusite, and the 55Amorite, and the 56Girgasite,
And the 57Hivite, and the Arkite, and the 58Sinite,
And the 59Arvadite, and the 60Zemarite, and the 61Hamathite: and afterward were the families of the 62Canaanites spread abroad.
And the 63border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto 64Gaza; as thou goest, unto 65Sodom, and 66Gomorrah, and 67Admah, and 68Zeboim, even unto 69Lasha.
These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.
¶Unto Shem also, the 70father of 71all the children of Eber, the brother of 72Japheth 73the elder, even to him were 74children 75born.
76Thee children of Shem; 77Elam, and 78Asshur, andf79Arphaxad, and 80Lud, and 81Aram.
And the children of Aram; 82Uz, and 83Hul, and 84Gether, and 85Mash.
And 86Arphaxadg begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.
And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; 87for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.
And 88Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,
And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,
And Obal, and Abimael, and 89Sheba,
And 90Ophir, and 91Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan.
And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar a mount of 92the east.
These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their 93generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
