Genesis 10
New Heart English Bible
1Now These are the generations of the sons of Noah and of Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Sons were born to them after the flood.

2The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. 3The sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah. 4The sons of Javan: Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Rodanim. 5From these, the coastlands of the nations separated into their territories, every one according to its language, according to their families, in their nations.

6The sons of Ham: Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. 7The sons of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan. 8Cush became the father of Nimrod. He began to be a mighty one on the earth. 9He was a mighty hunter before God. Therefore it is said, "Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before God." 10And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Akkad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11Out of that land he went forth into Assyria, and built Nineveh, and Rehoboth Ir, and Calah, 12and Resen, between Nineveh and the great city of Calah. 13And Mizraim became the father of Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim, 14And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, which the Philistines descended from, and Caphtorim.

15And Canaan became the father of Sidon, his firstborn, and Heth, 16and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, and the Girgashites, 17and the Hivites, and the Arkites, and the Sinites, 18and the Arvadites, and the Zemarites, and the Hamathites. Afterward the families of the Canaanites were spread abroad. 19And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as you go toward Gerar, to Gaza; as you go toward Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboiim, to Lasha. 20These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their languages, in their lands, in their nations.

21To Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the elder brother of Japheth, to him also were children born. 22The sons of Shem: Elam, and Asshur, and Arpachshad, and Lud, and Aram. 23The sons of Aram: Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash. 24And Arpachshad became the father of Kenan. And Kenan became the father of Shelah. And Shelah became the father of Eber. 25To Eber were born two sons. The name of the one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided. His brother?s name was Joktan. 26And Joktan became 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. 30Their dwelling was from Mesha, as you go toward Sephar, the mountain of the east. 31These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their languages, in their lands, after their nations.

32These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations, and from these the nations branched out on the earth after the flood.
