1 Chronicles From Adam to Noah’s Sons 1 1The descendants of Adam were Seth, Enosh, 2Kenan, Mahalalel, Jared, 3Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech, 4and Noah. The sons of Noah were[A] Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Descendants of Japheth 5The descendants of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. 6The descendants of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath,[B] and Togarmah. 7The descendants of Javan were Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Rodanim. Descendants of Ham 8The descendants of Ham were Cush, Mizraim,[C] Put, and Canaan. 9The descendants of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The descendants of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan. 10Cush was also the ancestor of Nimrod, who was the first heroic warrior on earth. 11Mizraim was the ancestor of the Ludites, Anamites, Lehabites, Naphtuhites, 12Pathrusites, Casluhites, and the Caphtorites, from whom the Philistines came.[D] 13Canaan’s oldest son was Sidon, the ancestor of the Sidonians. Canaan was also the ancestor of the Hittites, 14Jebusites, Amorites, Girgashites, 15Hivites, Arkites, Sinites, 16Arvadites, Zemarites, and Hamathites. Descendants of Shem 17The descendants of Shem were Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram. The descendants of Aram were[E] Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash.[F] 18Arphaxad was the father of Shelah. Shelah was the father of Eber. 19Eber had two sons. The first was named Peleg (which means “division”), for during his lifetime the people of the world were divided into different language groups. His brother’s name was Joktan. 20Joktan was the ancestor of Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 21Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 22Obal,[G] Abimael, Sheba, 23Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All these were descendants of Joktan. 24So this is the family line descended from Shem: Arphaxad, Shelah,[H] 25Eber, Peleg, Reu, 26Serug, Nahor, Terah, 27and Abram, later known as Abraham. Descendants of Abraham 28The sons of Abraham were Isaac and Ishmael. 29These are their genealogical records: The sons of Ishmael were Nebaioth (the oldest), Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, 30Mishma, Dumah, Massa, Hadad, Tema, 31Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. These were the sons of Ishmael. 32The sons of Keturah, Abraham’s concubine, were Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah. The sons of Jokshan were Sheba and Dedan. 33The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida, and Eldaah. All these were descendants of Abraham through his concubine Keturah. Descendants of Isaac 34Abraham was the father of Isaac. The sons of Isaac were Esau and Israel.[I] Descendants of Esau 35The sons of Esau were Eliphaz, Reuel, Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. 36The sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho,[J] Gatam, Kenaz, and Amalek, who was born to Timna.[K] 37The sons of Reuel were Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. Original Peoples of Edom 38The sons of Seir were Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. 39The sons of Lotan were Hori and Heman.[L] Lotan’s sister was named Timna. 40The sons of Shobal were Alvan,[M] Manahath, Ebal, Shepho,[N] and Onam. The sons of Zibeon were Aiah and Anah. 41The son of Anah was Dishon. The sons of Dishon were Hemdan,[O] Eshban, Ithran, and Keran. 42The sons of Ezer were Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan.[P] The sons of Dishan[Q] were Uz and Aran. Rulers of Edom 43These are the kings who ruled in Edom before there were kings in Israel[R]: Bela son of Beor, who ruled from his city of Dinhabah. 44When Bela died, Jobab son of Zerah from Bozrah became king. 45When Jobab died, Husham from the land of the Temanites became king. 46When Husham died, Hadad son of Bedad became king and ruled from the city of Avith. He was the one who destroyed the Midianite army in the land of Moab. 47When Hadad died, Samlah from the city of Masrekah became king. 48When Samlah died, Shaul from the city of Rehoboth on the river became king. 49When Shaul died, Baal-hanan son of Acbor became king. 50When Baal-hanan died, Hadad became king and ruled from the city of Pau.[S] His wife was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred and granddaughter of Me-zahab. 51Then Hadad died. The clan leaders of Edom were Timna, Alvah,[T] Jetheth, 52Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon, 53Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar, 54Magdiel, and Iram. These were the clan leaders of Edom.
