Genesis 10
1¶ Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and unto them were born sons after the flood.
2The sons of Japheth: Gomer and Magog and Madai and Javan and Tubal and Meshech and Tiras.
3And the sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz and Riphath and Togarmah.
4And the sons of Javan: Elishah and Tarshish, Kittim and Dodanim.
5By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands, each one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
6¶ And the sons of Ham: Cush and Mizraim and Phut and Canaan.
7And the sons of Cush: Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabtecha. And the sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.
8And Cush begat Nimrod. He began to be powerful in the earth.
9He was a powerful hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, Even as Nimrod, the powerful 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, who built Nineveh and the city Rehoboth and Calah
12and Resen between Nineveh and Calah; the same is a great city.
13And Mizraim begat Ludim and Anamim and Lehabim and Naphtuhim
14and Pathrusim and Casluhim (out of whom came the Philistines) and Caphtorim.
15¶ And Canaan begat Sidon, his firstborn, and Heth
16and Jebusite and Amorite and Girgasite
17and Hivite and Arkite and Sinite
18and Arvadite and Zemarite and 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 Gaza, as thou goest, unto Sodom and Gomorrah and Admah and Zeboim, even unto Lasha.
20These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.
21¶ Unto Shem also, the father of all the sons of Eber, the elder brother of Japheth, even to him were sons born.
22The sons of Shem: Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram.
23And the sons of Aram: Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash.
24And Arphaxad begat Salah, and Salah begat Eber.
25And unto 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.
26And Joktan begat Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah,
27Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,
28Obal, Abimael, Sheba,
29Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab; all these were the sons of Joktan.
30And their dwelling was from Mesha as thou goest unto Sephar, 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 descendants, in their nations; and by these were the Gentiles divided in the earth after the flood.

The story about Noah’s sons and their families
1This is the story about Noah’s sons and their families. His sons were Shem, and Ham, and Jafeth, and after that big flood, they had kids too.
The tribes from Jafeth’s family
2-5A long time later, the people that were born into Jafeth’s family split up into different tribes and nations. Each tribe had their own language, and their own country. Jafeth’s sons were Gomer, and Magog, and Madayi, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshek, and Tiras.
The tribes that were from Jafeth’s son Gomer and his family were the Ashkenaz mob, and the Rifath mob, and the Togarmah mob.
The tribes that were from Jafeth’s son Javan and his family were the Elishah mob, and the Tarshish mob, and the Kit mob, and the Rodan mob.
Javan’s people lived near the sea.
The tribes from Ham’s family
6The people that were born into Ham’s family split up into different tribes too, and each tribe had their own language, and their own country. Ham’s sons were Cush, and Egypt, and Put, and Canaan.
7The tribes that were from Ham’s son Cush and his family were the Seba mob, and the Havilah mob, and the Sabtah mob, and the Ramah mob, and the Sabteca mob. And the tribes that were from Ramah and his family were the Sheba mob, and the Dedan mob.
8One of the men that was born into Cush’s family was called Nimrod. After he grew up, he became a strong fighter. 9He was the best hunter in the world too. Whenever people talked about good hunters, they said things like this, “That man is a really good hunter. He is just like Nimrod, the best hunter in the world.”
10Nimrod controlled the country called Babylonia, and he was the boss over the cities called Babel, and Erek, and Akad. 11After that, Nimrod got the country called Assyria, and he built the towns called Nineveh, and Rehoboth-Ir, and Calah. 12Then he built a big town called Resen. It was between Nineveh and Calah.
13The tribes that were from Ham’s son Egypt and his family were the Lud mob, and the Anam mob, and the Lehab mob, and the Naftuh mob, 14and the Pathrus mob, and the Casluh mob, and the Caftor mob. (Later the Philistia nation were from the Caftor mob.)
15Ham’s youngest son was called Canaan. Canaan had 2 sons. His 1st son was called Sidon, and his other son was called Heth. 16The tribes that were from Canaan and his family were the Jebus mob, and the Amor mob, and the Girgash mob, 17and the Hiv mob, and the Arek mob, and the Sin mob, 18-19and the Arvad mob, and the Zemar mob, and the Hamath mob. All those tribes were from Canaan, and they went as far north as the town called Sidon, and as far south as the town called Gaza, and as far east as the towns called Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboyim, near Lasha.
20They were all the tribes and nations that were from Ham and his family. Each tribe had their own country, and their own language.
The tribes from Shem’s family
21Shem was Jafeth’s older brother. The Eber mob are from Shem’s family. 22Shem’s sons were Elam, and Asshur, and Arfaxad, and Lud, and Aram.
23The tribes that were from Shem’s son Aram and his family were the Uz mob, and the Hul mob, and the Gether mob, and the Mash mob.
24Shem’s son Arfaxad had a son called Shelah, and he had a son called Eber. 25Eber had 2 sons. The 1st son was called Peleg, and his young brother was called Joktan. That name Peleg means split up. He got that name because all the people split up into different tribes after he was born.
26The tribes that were from Eber’s son Joktan’s family were the Almodad mob, and the Shelef mob, and the Hazarmaveth mob, and the Jerah mob, 27and the Hadoram mob, and the Uzal mob, and the Diklah mob, 28and the Obal mob, and the Abimayel mob, and the Sheba mob, 29and the Ofir mob, and the Havilah mob, and the Jobab mob. 30All of those people were born into Joktan’s family. Their country was in the mountains in the east, the country you see if you go from Mesha all the way to Sefar.
31They were all the tribes and nations that were from Shem’s family. Each tribe had their own country, and their own language.
32That is the big list of all the families and tribes that were born into Noah’s family. They split up into their own nations, and they went everywhere after the big flood.
