Genesis 10

The Descendants of the Sons of Noah
(1 Chronicles 1.5-23)
1Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah; Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
2The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Ma´dai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. 3And the sons of Gomer; Ash´kenaz, and Riphath, and Togar´mah. 4And the sons of Javan; Eli´shah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Do´danim. 5By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
6And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Miz´ra-im, and Phut, and Canaan. 7And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Hav´ilah, and Sabtah, and Ra´amah, and Sab´techa: and the sons of Ra´amah; Sheba, and Dedan. 8And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. 9He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty 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, and builded Nin´eveh, and the city Reho´both, and Calah, 12and Resen between Nin´eveh and Calah: the same is a great city. 13And Miz´ra-im begat Ludim, and An´amim, and Le´habim, and Naph´tuhim, 14and Path´rusim, and Cas´luhim, (out of whom came Phil´istim,) and Caph´torim.
15And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth, 16and the Jeb´usite, and the Amorite, and the Gir´gashite, 17and the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite, 18and the Ar´vadite, and the Zem´arite, and the Ha´mathite: 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 Gomor´rah, and Admah, and Zebo´im, even unto Lasha. 20These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.
21Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born. 22The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphax´ad, and Lud, and Aram. 23And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash. 24And Arphax´ad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber. 25And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg;#10.25 That is, Division. for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan. 26And Joktan begat Almo´dad, and Sheleph, and Ha´zar-ma´veth, and Jerah, 27and Hador´am, and Uzal, and Diklah, 28and Obal, and Abim´a-el, and Sheba, 29and Ophir, and Hav´ilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan. 30And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar, a 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 generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
