10:1 And these are the generations of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and to them were sons born after the flood.
10:2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
10:3 And the sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
10:4 And the sons of Javan: Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
10:5 From these came the distribution of the isles of the nations, according to their lands, every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
10:6 And the sons of Ham: Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.
10:7 And the sons of Cush: Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtecha. And the sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.
10:8 And Cush begot Nimrod: he began to be mighty on the earth.
10:9 He was a mighty hunter before Jehovah; therefore it is said, As Nimrod, the mighty hunter before Jehovah!
10:10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
10:11 From that land went out Asshur, and built Nineveh, and Rehoboth-Ir, and Calah,
10:12 and Resen, between Nineveh and Calah: this is the great city.
10:13 -- And Mizraim begot the Ludim, and the Anamim, and the Lehabim, and the Naphtuhim,
10:14 and the Pathrusim, and the Casluhim, out of whom came the Philistines, and the Caphtorim.
10:15 -- And Canaan begot Sidon, his firstborn, and Heth,
10:16 and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgashite,
10:17 and the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,
10:18 and the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. And afterwards the families of the Canaanites spread themselves abroad.
10:19 And the border of the Canaanite was from Sidon, as one goes to Gerar, up to Gazah; as one goes to Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, up to Lesha.
10:20 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, in their nations.
10:21 And to Shem -- to him also were [sons] born; he is the father of all the sons of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder.
10:22 The sons of Shem: Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.
10:23 And the sons of Aram: Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.
10:24 -- And Arphaxad begot Shelah; and Shelah begot Eber.
10:25 And to 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.
10:26 And Joktan begot Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,
10:27 and Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,
10:28 and Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,
10:29 and Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were sons of Joktan.
10:30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as one goes to Sephar, the eastern mountain.
10:31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
10:32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations. And from these came the distribution of the nations on the earth after the flood.
