1Now these are the toldot of the Bnei Noach: Shem, Cham, and Yephet; and unto them were banim born after the mabbul (flood). 2The Bnei Yephet: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Yavan, and Tuval, and Meshech, and Tiras. 3And the Bnei Gomer: Ashkenaz, and Riphat, and Togarmah. 4And the Bnei Yavan: Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. 5By these were the coastlands of the Goyim divided in their lands; every one after his leshon, after their mishpechot, in their Goyim. 6And the Bnei Cham: Cush, and Mitzrayim, and Phut, and Kena'an. 7And the Bnei Cush: Seva, and Chavilah, and Savtah, and Raamah, and Savtecha; and the Bnei Raamah: Sheva, and Dedan. 8And Cush fathered Nimrod; he began to be a gibbor in ha'aretz. 9He was a gibbor, a hunter before Hashem; therefore it is said, like Nimrod the gibbor, the hunter before Hashem. 10And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Akkad, and Calneh, in Eretz Shinar. 11Out of that land he went forth to Asshur, and built Nineveh, and Rechovot-Ir, and Kelach, 12And Resen between Nineveh and Kelach; the same is haIr Hagedolah. 13And Mitzrayim fathered Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehavim, and Naphtuchim, 14And Patrusim, and Casluchim, out of whom came Pelishtim (Philistines), and Caphtorim. 15And Kena'an fathered Tzidon his bechor, and Chet, 16And the Yevusi, and the Emori, and the Girgashi, 17And the Chivvi, and the Arki, and the Sini, 18And the Arvadi, and the Tzemari, and the Chamati; and afterward were the mishpechot haKena'ani spread abroad. 19And the boundary of the Kena'ani was from Tzidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto Azah (Gaza); as thou goest, unto Sodom, and Amora (Gomorrah), and Admah, and Tzevoyim, even unto Lesha. 20These are the Bnei Cham, after their mishpechot, after their leshonot, in their territories, and in their Goyim. 21Also unto Shem avi kol Bnei Ever, and the older brother of Yephet, even to him were offspring born. 22The Bnei Shem: Elam, and Asshur, and Arpachshad, and Lud, and Aram. 23And Bnei Aram: Uz, and Chul, and Geter, and Mash. 24And Arpachshad fathered Shelach; and Shelach fathered Ever. 25And unto Ever were born two banim: the shem of one was Peleg; for in his days was ha'aretz divided; and his brother's shem was Yoktan. 26And Yoktan fathered Almodad, and Sheleph, and Chatzarmavet, and Yerach, 27And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah, 28And Oval, and Avimael, and Sheva, 29And Ophir, and Chavilah, and Yovav; all these were the Bnei Yoktan. 30And their moshav (dwelling) was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar har hakedem. 31These are the Bnei Shem, after their mishpechot, according to their leshonot, in their territories, after their Goyim. 32These are the mishpechot of the Bnei Noach, after their toldot, in their Goyim; and by these were the Goyim divided/separated in ha'aretz after the mabbul.

8Cush was the father of Nimrod, the first mighty warrior on the earth. 9He was a mighty hunter whom the Lord blessed. That’s why people used to say, “⌞He’s⌟ like Nimrod, a mighty hunter whom the Lord blessed.” 10The first ⌞cities⌟ in his kingdom were Babylon, Erech, Accad, and Calneh in Shinar [Babylonia]. 11He went from that land to Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah, 12and Resen, the great city between Nineveh and Calah.
