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