10:1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: these are the sons which they had after the great flow of waters

10:2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer and Magog and Madai and Javan and Tubal and Meshech and Tiras.

10:3 And the sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz and Riphath and Togarmah.

10:4 And the sons of Javan: Elishah and Tarshish, the Kittim and the Dodanim.

10:5 From these came the nations of the sea-lands, with their different families and languages.

10:6 And the sons of Ham: Cush and Mizraim and Put and Canaan.

10:7 And the sons of Cush: Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.

10:8 And Cush was the father of Nimrod, who was the first of the great men of the earth.

10:9 He was a very great bowman, so that there is a saying, Like Nimrod, a very great bowman.

10:10 And at the first, his kingdom was Babel and Erech and Accad and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

10:11 From that land he went out into Assyria, building Nineveh with its wide streets and Calah,

10:12 And Resen between Nineveh and Calah, which is a very great town.

10:13 And Mizraim was the father of the Ludim and Anamim and Lehabim and Naphtuhim;

10:14 And Pathrusim and Casluhim and Caphtorim, from whom came the Philistines.

10:15 And Canaan was the father of Zidon, who was his oldest son, and Heth,

10:16 And the Jebusite and the Amorite and the Girgashite,

10:17 And the Hivite and the Arkite and the Sinite,

10:18 And the Arvadite and the Zemarite and the Hamathite; after that the families of the Canaanites went far and wide in all directions;

10:19 Their country stretching from Zidon to Gaza, in the direction of Gerar; and to Lasha, in the direction of Sodom and Gomorrah and Admah and Zeboiim.

10:20 All these, with their different families, languages, lands, and nations, are the offspring of Ham.

10:21 And Shem, the older brother of Japheth, the father of the children of Eber, had other sons in addition.

10:22 These are the sons of Shem: Elam and Asshur and Arpachshad and Lud and Aram.

10:23 And the sons of Aram: Uz and Hul and Gether and Mash.

10:24 And Arpachshad became the father of Shelah; and Shelah became the father of Eber.

10:25 And Eber had two sons: the name of the one was Peleg, because in his time the peoples of the earth became separate; and his brother's name was Joktan.

10:26 And Joktan was the father of Almodad and Sheleph and Hazarmaveth and Jerah

10:27 And Hadoram and Uzal and Diklah

10:28 And Obal and Abimael and Sheba

10:29 And Ophir and Havilah and Jobab; all these were the sons of Joktan.

10:30 And their country was from Mesha, in the direction of Sephar, the mountain of the east.

10:31 These, with their families and their languages and their lands and their nations, are the offspring of Shem.

10:32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, in the order of their generations and their nations: from these came all the nations of the earth after the great flow of waters.
