The Generations of Shem, Ham, and Japheth

1Now these are the generations of Shem, Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah; and sons were born to them after the flood.

2The sons of Japheth were Gomer and Magog and Madai and Javan and Tubal and Meshech and Tiras. 3The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz and [†]Riphath and Togarmah. 4The sons of Javan were Elishah and Tarshish, Kittim and [†]Dodanim. 5From these the coastlands of the nations [†]were separated into their lands, every one according to his tongue, according to their families, into their nations.

6The sons of Ham were Cush and [†]Mizraim and Put and Canaan. 7The sons of Cush were Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan. 8Now Cush [†]was the father of Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth. 9He was a mighty hunter before Yahweh; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before Yahweh.” 10The beginning of his kingdom was [†]Babel and Erech and Accad and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11From that land he went out to Assyria and built Nineveh and Rehoboth-Ir and Calah, 12and Resen between Nineveh and Calah; that is the great city. 13Mizraim [†]was the father of Ludim and Anamim and Lehabim and Naphtuhim 14and Pathrusim and Casluhim (from whom came the Philistines) and Caphtorim.

15Canaan [†]was the father of Sidon, his firstborn, and Heth 16and the Jebusite and the Amorite and the Girgashite 17and the Hivite and the Arkite and the Sinite 18and the Arvadite and the Zemarite and the Hamathite; and afterward the families of the Canaanite were scattered. 19The border of the Canaanite [†]extended from Sidon as you go toward Gerar, as far as Gaza; as you go toward Sodom and Gomorrah and Admah and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha. 20These are the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their tongues, by their lands, by their nations.

21Also to Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, and the [†]older brother of Japheth, children were born. 22The sons of Shem were Elam and Asshur and Arpachshad and Lud and Aram. 23The sons of Aram were Uz and Hul and Gether and Mash. 24Arpachshad [†]was the father of Shelah; and Shelah [†]was the father of Eber. 25Now two sons were born to Eber; the name of the one was [†]Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan. 26And Joktan [†]was the father of Almodad and Sheleph and Hazarmaveth and Jerah 27and Hadoram and Uzal and Diklah 28and [†]Obal and Abimael and Sheba 29and Ophir and Havilah and Jobab; all these were the sons of Joktan.

30Now their [†]settlement [†]extended from Mesha as you go toward Sephar, the hill country of the east. 31These are the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their tongues, by their lands, according to their nations.

32These are the families of the sons of Noah, according to their generations, by their nations; and out of these the nations were separated on the earth after the flood.
