Genesis 10

10
Nations Descended from Noah
1These are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Sons were born to them after the flood.
2 # For ver. 1-5, see 1 Chr. 1:5-7; Ezek. 38:1-6 The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. 3The sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah. 4The sons of Javan: Elishah, #Ps. 72:10; Ezek. 38:13 Tarshish, #Num. 24:24; Isa. 23:1, 12; Dan. 11:30Kittim, and Dodanim. 5From these #Isa. 11:11; Jer. 2:10; 25:22; Ezek. 27:6; Zeph. 2:11the coastland peoples spread in their lands, each with his own language, by their clans, in their nations.
6 # For ver. 6-8, see 1 Chr. 1:8-10 The sons of Ham: Cush, Egypt, Put, and Canaan. 7The sons of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan. 8Cush fathered Nimrod; he was the first on earth to be a mighty man.#10:8 Or he began to be a mighty man on the earth 9He was a mighty hunter before the Lord. Therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the Lord.” 10The beginning of his kingdom was #ch. 11:9 Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in #ch. 11:2the land of Shinar. 11From that land he went into Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth-Ir, Calah, and 12Resen between Nineveh and Calah; that is the great city. 13#For ver. 13-18, see 1 Chr. 1:11-16Egypt fathered Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, 14Pathrusim, Casluhim (from whom#10:14 Or from where the Philistines came), and #Deut. 2:23; Jer. 47:4; Amos 9:7Caphtorim.
15 # [ch. 15:18-21] Canaan fathered Sidon his firstborn and Heth, 16and the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgashites, 17the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites, 18the Arvadites, the Zemarites, and the Hamathites. Afterward the clans of the Canaanites dispersed. 19And the territory of the Canaanites extended from Sidon in the direction of Gerar as far as Gaza, and in the direction of Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha. 20These are the sons of Ham, by their clans, their languages, their lands, and their nations.
21To Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the elder brother of Japheth, children were born. 22The #For ver. 22-29, see 1 Chr. 1:17-25sons of Shem: Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud, and Aram. 23The sons of Aram: Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash. 24Arpachshad fathered #ch. 11:12; Luke 3:35, 36Shelah; and Shelah fathered Eber. 25#1 Chr. 1:19To Eber were born two sons: the name of the one was Peleg,#10:25 Peleg means division for in his days the earth was divided, and his brother’s name was Joktan. 26Joktan fathered Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28Obal, Abimael, Sheba, 29#1 Kgs. 9:28; 10:11Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab; all these were the sons of Joktan. 30The territory in which they lived extended from Mesha in the direction of Sephar to the hill country of the east. 31These are the sons of Shem, by their clans, their languages, their lands, and their nations.
32These are the clans of the sons of Noah, according to their genealogies, in their nations, #ver. 1; ch. 9:19and from these the nations spread abroad on the earth after the flood.

The story about Noah’s sons and their families
1This is the story about Noah’s sons and their families. His sons were Shem, and Ham, and Jafeth, and after that big flood, they had kids too.
The tribes from Jafeth’s family
2-5A long time later, the people that were born into Jafeth’s family split up into different tribes and nations. Each tribe had their own language, and their own country. Jafeth’s sons were Gomer, and Magog, and Madayi, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshek, and Tiras.
The tribes that were from Jafeth’s son Gomer and his family were the Ashkenaz mob, and the Rifath mob, and the Togarmah mob.
The tribes that were from Jafeth’s son Javan and his family were the Elishah mob, and the Tarshish mob, and the Kit mob, and the Rodan mob.
Javan’s people lived near the sea.
The tribes from Ham’s family
6The people that were born into Ham’s family split up into different tribes too, and each tribe had their own language, and their own country. Ham’s sons were Cush, and Egypt, and Put, and Canaan.
7The tribes that were from Ham’s son Cush and his family were the Seba mob, and the Havilah mob, and the Sabtah mob, and the Ramah mob, and the Sabteca mob. And the tribes that were from Ramah and his family were the Sheba mob, and the Dedan mob.
8One of the men that was born into Cush’s family was called Nimrod. After he grew up, he became a strong fighter. 9He was the best hunter in the world too. Whenever people talked about good hunters, they said things like this, “That man is a really good hunter. He is just like Nimrod, the best hunter in the world.”
10Nimrod controlled the country called Babylonia, and he was the boss over the cities called Babel, and Erek, and Akad. 11After that, Nimrod got the country called Assyria, and he built the towns called Nineveh, and Rehoboth-Ir, and Calah. 12Then he built a big town called Resen. It was between Nineveh and Calah.
13The tribes that were from Ham’s son Egypt and his family were the Lud mob, and the Anam mob, and the Lehab mob, and the Naftuh mob, 14and the Pathrus mob, and the Casluh mob, and the Caftor mob. (Later the Philistia nation were from the Caftor mob.)
15Ham’s youngest son was called Canaan. Canaan had 2 sons. His 1st son was called Sidon, and his other son was called Heth. 16The tribes that were from Canaan and his family were the Jebus mob, and the Amor mob, and the Girgash mob, 17and the Hiv mob, and the Arek mob, and the Sin mob, 18-19and the Arvad mob, and the Zemar mob, and the Hamath mob. All those tribes were from Canaan, and they went as far north as the town called Sidon, and as far south as the town called Gaza, and as far east as the towns called Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboyim, near Lasha.
20They were all the tribes and nations that were from Ham and his family. Each tribe had their own country, and their own language.
The tribes from Shem’s family
21Shem was Jafeth’s older brother. The Eber mob are from Shem’s family. 22Shem’s sons were Elam, and Asshur, and Arfaxad, and Lud, and Aram.
23The tribes that were from Shem’s son Aram and his family were the Uz mob, and the Hul mob, and the Gether mob, and the Mash mob.
24Shem’s son Arfaxad had a son called Shelah, and he had a son called Eber. 25Eber had 2 sons. The 1st son was called Peleg, and his young brother was called Joktan. That name Peleg means split up. He got that name because all the people split up into different tribes after he was born.
26The tribes that were from Eber’s son Joktan’s family were the Almodad mob, and the Shelef mob, and the Hazarmaveth mob, and the Jerah mob, 27and the Hadoram mob, and the Uzal mob, and the Diklah mob, 28and the Obal mob, and the Abimayel mob, and the Sheba mob, 29and the Ofir mob, and the Havilah mob, and the Jobab mob. 30All of those people were born into Joktan’s family. Their country was in the mountains in the east, the country you see if you go from Mesha all the way to Sefar.
31They were all the tribes and nations that were from Shem’s family. Each tribe had their own country, and their own language.
32That is the big list of all the families and tribes that were born into Noah’s family. They split up into their own nations, and they went everywhere after the big flood.
