[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42] [43] [44] [45] [46] [47] [48] [49] [50]

10:1 These are the generations of the sons of Noe: Sem, Cham, and Japheth: and unto them sons were born after the flood.

10:2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Thubal, and Mosoch, and Thiras.

10:3 And the sons of Gomer: Ascenez and Riphath and Thogorma.

10:4 And the sons of Javan: Elisa and Tharsis, Cetthim, and Dodanim.

10:5 By these were divided the islands of the Gentiles in their lands, every one according to his tongue and their families in their nations.

10:6 And the sons of Cham: Chus, and Mesram, and Phuth, and Chanaan.

10:7 And the sons of Chus: Saba and Hevila, and Sabatha, and Regma, and Sabatacha. The sons of Regma: Saba and Dadan.

10:8 Now Chus begot Nemrod: he began to be mighty on earth.

10:9 And he was a stout hunter before the Lord. Hence came a proverb: Even as Nemrod the stout hunter before the Lord.

10:10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babylon, and Arach, and Achad, and Chalanne in the land of Sennaar.

10:11 Out of that land came forth Assur, and built Ninive, and the streets of the city, and Chale.

10:12 Resen also between Ninive and Chale: this is the great city.

10:13 And Mesraim begot Ludim, and Anamim, and Laabim, Nepthuim,

10:14 And Phetrusim, and Chasluim; of whom came forth the Philistines, and the Capthorim.

10:15 And Chanaan begot Sidon, his firstborn, the Hethite,

10:16 And the Jebusite, and the Amorrhite, and the Gergesite,

10:17 The Hevite and the Aracite: the Sinite,

10:18 And the Aradian, the Samarite, and the Hamathite: and afterwards the families of the Chanaanites were spread abroad.

10:19 And 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.

10:20 These are the children of Cham in their kindreds, and tongues, and generations, and lands, and nations.

10:21 Of Sem also, the father of all children of Heber, the elder brother of Japheth, sons were born.

10:22 The sons of Sem: Elam and Assur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.

10:23 The sons of Aram: Us and Hull, and Gether: and Mess.

10:24 But Arphaxad begot Sale, of whom was born Heber.

10:25 And 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.

10:26 Which Jectan begot Elmodad, and Saleph, and Asarmoth, Jare,

10:27 And Anduram, and Uzal, and Decla,

10:28 And Ebal, and Abimael, Saba,

10:29 And Ophir, and Hevila, and Jobab.

10:30 And their dwelling was from Messa as we go on as far as Sephar, a mountain in the east.

10:31 These are the children of Sem according to their kindreds and tongues, and countries in their nations.

10:32 These are the families of Noe, according to their peoples and nations. By these were the nations divided on the earth after the flood.
