1 This is the genealogy of Shem, Ham, and Japheth, Noahs sons, who also had sons after the flood.
2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras.
3 The sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah.
4 The sons of Javan: Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Rodanim Dodanim.
5 From these the maritime peoples spread out into their territories by their clans within their nations, each with its own language.
6 The sons of Ham: Cush, Mizraim Egypt, Put, and Canaan.
7 The sons of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.
8 Cush was the father of Nimrod, who grew to be a mighty warrior on the earth.
9 He was a mighty hunter before Jehovah. That is why it is said: »Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before Jehovah.«
10 The first centers of his kingdom were Babylon, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in Shinar.
11 From that land he went to Assyria, where he built Nineveh, Rehoboth-Ir, Calah,
12 and Resen, which is between Nineveh and Calah; that is the great city.
13 Mizraim was the father of the Ludites, Anamites, Lehabites, Naphtuhites,
14 Pathrusites, Casluhites, and Caphtorites.
15 Canaan was the father of Sidon his firstborn, and of the Hittites,
16 Jebusites, Amorites, Girgashites,
17 Hivites, Arkites, Sinites,
18 Arvadites, Zemarites, and Hamathites. Later the Canaanite clans scattered,
19 and the borders of Canaan reached from Sidon toward Gerar as far as Gaza, and then toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha.
20 These are the sons of Ham by their clans and languages, in their territories and nations.
21 Sons were also born to Shem, whose older brother was Japheth. Shem was the ancestor of all the sons of Eber.
22 The sons of Shem: Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud and Aram.
23 The sons of Aram: Uz, Hul, Gether, and Meshech.
24 Arpachshad was the father of Shelah, and Shelah the father of Eber.
25 Two sons were born to Eber. One was named Peleg, because in his time the earth was divided. His brother was named Joktan.
26 Joktan was the father of Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah,
27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,
28 Obal, Abimael, Sheba,
29 Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All these were sons of Joktan.
30 The region where they lived stretched from Mesha toward Sephar, in the eastern hill country.
31 These are the sons of Shem by their clans and languages, in their territories and nations.
32 These are the clans of Noahs sons, according to their lines of descent, within their nations. From these the nations spread out over the earth after the flood.
