3 And the sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
4 And the sons of Javan: Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and
5 Of these were the isles of the nations divided in their
lands, every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
6 And the sons of Ham: Cush, and Mizraim, and Put, and
7 And the sons of Cush: Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and
Raamah, and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah: Sheba, and Dedan.

'Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before HaShem.'
10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and
Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

13 And Mizraim begot Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and
14 and Pathrusim, and Casluhim--whence went forth the
15 And Canaan begot Zidon his firstborn, and
16 and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgashite;
17 and the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite;
18 and the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite; and
afterward were the families of the Canaanite spread abroad.
19 And the border of the Canaanite was from Zidon, as thou
goest toward Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest toward Sodom and Gomorrah and Admah
and Zeboiim, unto Lasha.
20 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after
their tongues, in their lands, in their nations.
21 And unto Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the
elder brother of Japheth, to him also were children born.
22 The sons of Shem: Elam, and Asshur, and Arpachshad, and
Lud, and Aram.
23 And the sons of Aram: Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.
24 And Arpachshad begot Shelah; and Shelah begot Eber.
25 And unto Eber were born two sons; the name of the one was
Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.
26 And Joktan begot Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth,
27 and Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah;
28 and Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba;
29 and Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab; all these were the sons
30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest toward
Sephar, unto the mountain of the east.
31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after
their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their
generations, in their nations; and of these were the nations divided in the
earth after the flood.
