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 Table of Nations
1These are the family records # Gn 2:4 of Noah’s sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. They also had sons after the flood.
2Japheth’s sons: # 1Ch 1:5-7; Ezk 38:1-6 Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. 3Gomer’s sons: Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah. 4And Javan’s sons: Elishah, Tarshish, # 1Kg 10:22; Is 2:16 Kittim, and Dodanim. # Some Hb mss, Sam, LXX read Rodanim ; 1Ch 1:7 5The coastland peoples spread out into their lands. These are Japheth’s sons by their clans, in their nations. Each group had its own language.
6Ham’s sons: # 1Ch 1:8-10 Cush, Egypt, Put, and Canaan. 7Cush’s sons: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. And Raamah’s sons: Sheba and Dedan.
8Cush fathered Nimrod, who was the first powerful man on earth. 9He was a powerful hunter in the sight of the Lord. That is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a powerful hunter in the sight of the Lord.” 10His kingdom started with Babylon, # Gn 11:9 Erech, # Or Uruk Accad, # Or Akkad and Calneh, # Or and all of them in the land of Shinar. # Or in Babylonia # Gn 11:2; 14:1 11From that land he went to Assyria # Mc 5:6 and built Nineveh, Rehoboth-ir, Calah, 12and Resen, between Nineveh and the great city Calah.
13Mizraim # = Egypt # 1Ch 1:11-16 fathered Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, 14Pathrusim, Casluhim (the Philistines came from them), and Caphtorim. # Jr 47:4; Am 9:7
15Canaan fathered Sidon his firstborn, then Heth, 16the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgashites, # Gn 15:19-21 17the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites, 18the Arvadites, the Zemarites, and the Hamathites. Afterward the Canaanite clans scattered. 19The Canaanite border went from Sidon going toward Gerar as far as Gaza, and going toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim as far as Lasha.
20These are Ham’s sons, by their clans, according to their languages, in their own lands and their nations.
21And Shem, Japheth’s older brother, also had sons. Shem was the father of all the sons of Eber. # Gn 11:13-14 22Shem’s sons # 1Ch 1:17-23 were Elam, Asshur, # Or Assyria Arpachshad, Lud, and Aram.
23Aram’s sons: Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash.
24Arpachshad fathered # LXX reads fathered Cainan, and Cainan fathered ; Gn 11:12-13; Lk 3:35-36 Shelah, # Gn 11:12; Lk 3:35 and Shelah fathered Eber. 25Eber had two sons. One was named Peleg, for during his days the earth was divided; # Gn 11:8; Ps 55:9 his brother was named Joktan. 26And Joktan fathered Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28Obal, Abimael, Sheba, 29Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All these were Joktan’s sons. 30Their settlements extended from Mesha to Sephar, the eastern hill country.
31These are Shem’s sons by their clans, according to their languages, in their lands and their nations.
32These are the clans of Noah’s sons, according to their family records, in their nations. The nations on earth spread out from these after the flood. # Gn 9:19
