10 1These are the generations of the sons of Noe: Sem, Cham, and Japheth: and unto them sons were born after the flood. 2The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Thubal, and Mosoch, and Thiras. 3And the sons of Gomer: Ascenez and Riphath and Thogorma. 4And the sons of Javan: Elisa and Tharsis, Cetthim, and Dodanim. 5By these were divided the islands of the Gentiles in their lands, every one according to his tongue and their families in their nations. 6And the sons of Cham: Chus, and Mesram, and Phuth, and Chanaan. 7And the sons of Chus: Saba and Hevila, and Sabatha, and Regma, and Sabatacha. The sons of Regma: Saba and Dadan. 8Now Chus begot Nemrod: he began to be mighty on earth. 9And he was a stout hunter before the Lord. Hence came a proverb: Even as Nemrod the stout hunter before the Lord. 10And the beginning of his kingdom was Babylon, and Arach, and Achad, and Chalanne in the land of Sennaar. 11Out of that land came forth Assur, and built Ninive, and the streets of the city, and Chale. 12Resen also between Ninive and Chale: this is the great city. 13And Mesraim begot Ludim, and Anamim, and Laabim, Nepthuim, 14And Phetrusim, and Chasluim; of whom came forth the Philistines, and the Capthorim. 15And Chanaan begot Sidon, his firstborn, the Hethite, 16And the Jebusite, and the Amorrhite, and the Gergesite, 17The Hevite and the Aracite: the Sinite, 18And the Aradian, the Samarite, and the Hamathite: and afterwards the families of the Chanaanites were spread abroad. 19And the limits of Chanaan were from Sidon as one comes to Gerara even to Gaza, until thou enter Sodom and Gomorrha, and Adama, and Seboim even to Lesa. 20These are the children of Cham in their kindreds, and tongues, and generations, and lands, and nations. 21Of Sem also, the father of all children of Heber, the elder brother of Japheth, sons were born. 22The sons of Sem: Elam and Assur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram. 23The sons of Aram: Us and Hull, and Gether: and Mess. 24But Arphaxad begot Sale, of whom was born Heber. 25And to Heber were born two sons: the name of the one was Phaleg, because in his days the earth was divided: and his brother's name Jectan. 26Which Jectan begot Elmodad, and Saleph, and Asarmoth, Jare, 27And Anduram, and Uzal, and Decla, 28And Ebal, and Abimael, Saba, 29And Ophir, and Hevila, and Jobab. 30And their dwelling was from Messa as we go on as far as Sephar, a mountain in the east. 31These are the children of Sem according to their kindreds and tongues, and countries in their nations. 32These are the families of Noe, according to their peoples and nations. By these were the nations divided on the earth after the flood.
