6The sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. 7The sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan. 8Now Cush fathered Nimrod; he #Lit began to bebecame a mighty one on the earth. 9He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the Lord.” 10And the beginning of his kingdom was #Or BabylonBabel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11From that land he went to Assyria, and built Nineveh, Rehoboth-Ir, Calah, 12and Resen between Nineveh and Calah; that is the great city. 13Mizraim fathered Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, 14Pathrusim, Casluhim (from whom came the Philistines), and Caphtorim.
15Canaan fathered Sidon, his firstborn, and Heth, 16the Jebusite, the Amorite, the Girgashite, 17the Hivite, the Arkite, the Sinite, 18the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite; and afterward the families of the Canaanite were spread abroad. 19The territory of the Canaanite #Lit wasextended from Sidon #Lit as you gogoing toward Gerar, as far as Gaza; and #Lit as you gogoing toward Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha. 20These are the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their languages, by their lands, and by their nations.
21Also to Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, and the older brother of Japheth, children were born. 22The sons of Shem were Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud, and Aram. 23The sons of Aram were Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash. 24Arpachshad fathered Shelah; and Shelah fathered Eber. 25Two sons were born to Eber; the name of the one was #I.e., divisionPeleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan. 26Joktan fathered Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28#In 1 Chr 1:22, EbalObal, Abimael, Sheba, 29Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab; all of these were the sons of Joktan. 30Now their #Lit dwellingsettlement #Lit wasextended from Mesha #Lit as you gogoing toward Sephar, the hill country of the east. 31These are the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their languages, by their lands, and according to their nations.
32These are the families of the sons of Noah, according to their descendants, by their nations; and out of these the nations were separated on the earth after the flood.
