10:1 Now this is the genealogy of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And sons were born to them after the flood.
10:2 The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras.
10:3 The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath,[a] and Togarmah.
10:4 The sons of Javan were Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.[b]
10:5 From these the coastland peoples of the Gentiles were separated into their lands, everyone according to his language, according to their families, into their nations.
10:6 The sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Put,[c] and Canaan.
10:7 The sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabtechah; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan.
10:8 Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth.
10:9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord.”
10:10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
10:11 From that land he went to Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah,
10:12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah (that is the principal city).
10:13 Mizraim begot Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim,
10:14 Pathrusim, and Casluhim (from whom came the Philistines and Caphtorim).
10:15 Canaan begot Sidon his firstborn, and Heth;
10:16 the Jebusite, the Amorite, and the Girgashite;
10:17 the Hivite, the Arkite, and the Sinite;
10:18 the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. Afterward the families of the Canaanites were dispersed.
10:19 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon as you go toward Gerar, as far as Gaza; then as you go toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha.
10:20 These were the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their languages, in their lands and in their nations.
10:21 And children were born also to Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder.
10:22 The sons of Shem were Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram.
10:23 The sons of Aram were Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash.[d]
10:24 Arphaxad begot Salah,[e] and Salah begot Eber.
10:25 To Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.
10:26 Joktan begot Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah,
10:27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,
10:28 Obal,[f] Abimael, Sheba,
10:29 Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All these were the sons of Joktan.
10:30 And their dwelling place was from Mesha as you go toward Sephar, the mountain of the east.
10:31 These were the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their languages, in their lands, according to their nations.
10:32 These were the families of the sons of Noah, according to their generations, in their nations; and from these the nations were divided on the earth after the flood.
