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.
