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.

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.#10:4 Some Hb mss, LXX read Rodanim; 1Ch 1:7 5From these descendants, the peoples of the coasts and islands spread out into their lands according to their clans in their nations, each with its own language.
6Ham’s sons:#1Ch 1:8–10 Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. 7Cush’s sons: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. And Raamah’s sons: Sheba and Dedan.
8Cush fathered Nimrod, who began to be powerful in the land. 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,#10:10 Or Uruk Accad,#10:10 Or Akkad and Calneh,#10:10 Or and all of them in the land of Shinar.#10:10 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#10:13 = Egypt#1Ch 1:11–16 fathered the people of Lud, Anam, Lehab, Naphtuh, 14Pathrus, Casluh (the Philistines came from them), and Caphtor.#Jr 47:4; Am 9:7
15Canaan fathered Sidon his firstborn and Heth, 16as well as the 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 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, Arpachshad, Lud, and Aram.
23Aram’s sons: Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash.
24Arpachshad fathered#10:24 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,#10:25 = Division 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
