¶ These are the generations of the sons of Noe: of Sem, Ham and Iapheth, which begat them children after the flood. The sons of Iapheth were: Gomir, Magog, Madai, Iavan, Tuball, Mesech and Thyras. And the sons of Gomir were: Ascenas, Riphat and Togarma. And the sons of Iavan were: Elisa, Tharsis, Cithim, and Dodanim. Of these came the Isles of the gentiles in their countries, every man in his speech, kindred and nation.
¶ The sons of Ham were: Chus, Misraim, Phut and Canaan. The sons of Chus: were Seba, Hevila, Sabta, Raima and Sabtema. And the sons of Raima were: Sheba, and Dedan. Chus also begot Nimrod, which began to be mighty in the earth. He was a mighty hunter in the sight of the LORD: Whereof came the proverb: he is as Nimrod that mighty hunter in the sight of the LORD. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babell, Erech, Achad, and Chalne in the land of Sinear: Out of that land came Assur and builded Ninive, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah, and Ressen between Nineve and Calah. That is a great city. And Mizrim begat Ludim, Enanim, Leabim, Naphtuhim, Pathrusim and Casluhim: from whence came the Philistins, and the Caphtherines.
¶ Canaan also begat Zidon his eldest son and Heth, Iebusi, Emori, Girgosi, Hivi, Arki, Sini, Arvadi, Zemari and Harmati. And afterward sprang the kindreds of the Cananites. And the coasts of the Cananites were from Sidon till thou come to Gerara and to Asa, and till thou come to Sodoma, Gomorra, Adama, Zeboim: even unto Lasa. These were the children of Ham in their kindreds, tongues, lands and nations.
¶ And Sem the father of all the children of Eber and the eldest brother of Iapheth, begat children also. And his sons were: Elam Assur, Arphachsad, Lud and Aram. And the children of Aram were: Ur, Hul, Gether and Mas. And Arphachsad begat Sala, and Sala begat Eber. And Eber begat two sons. The name of the one was Peleg, for in his time the earth was divided. And the name of his brother was Iaketan. Iaketan begat Almodad, Saleph, Hizarmoneth, Iarah, Hadoram, Usal, Dikela, Obal, Abimael, Seba, Ophir, Hevila and Iobab. All these are the sons of Iaketan. And the dwelling of them was from Mesa until thou come unto Sephara a mountain of the east land. These are the sons of Sem in their kindreds, languages, countries and nations. These are the kindreds of the sons of Noe, in their generations and nations. And of these came the people that were in the world after the flood.
