Genesis 10

Genealogy of Noah’s Sons

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

Sons of Japheth

(2) The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras.

(3) And the sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah.

(4) And the sons of Javan were Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

(5) By these were the coastal Gentiles separated into their lands, everyone by his language, by their families, in their nations.

Sons of Ham

(6) The sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Phut, and Canaan.

(7) And the sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabtecha. The sons of Raamah were Sheba, and Dedan.

Nimrod the Mighty Hunter

(8) And Cush fathered Nimrod. He became a mighty one on the earth.

(9) He was a mighty hunter before the LORD. Thus it is said, "Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD."

(10) And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

(11) Out of that land he went to Assyria, and built Nineveh, the city Rehoboth, and Calah,

(12) and Resen between Nineveh and Calah, which is a great city.

(13) Mizraim fathered Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim,

(14) Pathrusim, Casluhim (from whom the Philistines came,) and Caphtorim.

(15) And Canaan fathered Sidon his firstborn, and Heth,

(16) and the Jebusite, the Amorite, the Girgasite,

(17) the Hivite, the Arkite, the Sinite,

(18) the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. And afterward the families of the Canaanites were spread abroad.

(19) The border of the Canaanites was from Sidon as you approach Gerar, to Gaza, and toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, even to Lasha.

(20) These are the sons of Ham, by their families, their languages in their countries, and in their nations.

Sons of Shem

(21) To Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the older brother of Japheth, to him children were born.

(22) The sons of Shem were Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram.

(23) The sons of Aram were Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash.

(24) Arphaxad fathered Salah, and Salah fathered Eber.

(25) And to Eber two sons were born. The name of one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided, and his brother’s name was Joktan.

(26) Joktan fathered 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) And they dwelled from Mesha, as you go toward Sephar, a mountain of the east.

(31) These are the sons of Shem, by their families, their languages, in their lands, and their nations.

(32) These are the families of the sons of Noah, by their generations, in their nations, and by these the nations were divided on the earth after the flood.
