1Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and unto them were sons born after the flood.
2The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tirass.
3And the sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah.
4And Javan's sons: Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
5From these were separated the isles of the nations in their lands, every one after his tongue: after their families, in their nations.
6And the sons of Ham: Cush and Mizrayim, Put and Canaan.
7And the sons of Cush: Seba and Havilah, Sabtah and Raamah, and Sabtecha; and the sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.
8And Cush begat Nimrod; he began to be a mighty man on the earth.
9He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the Lord.
10And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
11Out of that land went forth Asshur, and built Nineveh, and the city of Rechoboth, and Calach.
12And Ressen between Nineveh and Calach: the same is the great city.
13And Mizrayim begat the Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuchim.
14And the Pethrussim, and Casluchin, out of whom came the Pelishtim, and the Caphtorim.
15And Canaan begat Sidon his first-born, and Heth,
16And the Jebusite, and the Emorite, and the Girgashite,
17And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,
18And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite; and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.

19And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto Gazzah; as thou goest unto Sodom and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboyim, even unto Lesha.
20These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, in their nations.
21But unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, were children born.
22The sons of Shem: Elam, and Asshur, and Arpachshad, and Lud, and Aram.
23And the children of Aram: Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.
24And Arpachshad begat Shelach; and Shelach begat Eber.
25And unto Eber were born two sons; the name of one was Peleg, for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.
26And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerach,
27And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,
28And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba.
29And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab; all these were the sons of Joktan.
30And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar, the mount of the east.
31These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
32These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations; and from these were the nations separated on the earth after the flood.
