The Table of Nations
(1 Chronicles 1:4–27)

1These are the generations of the sonnes of Noah, Sem, Ham, and Iapheth: and vnto them were chyldren borne after the fludde.

The Japhethites

2The children of Iapheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Iauan, and Thubal, Mesech, and Thiras. 3The children of Gomer: Askenas, and Ripath, and Thogarma. 4The children of Iauan: Elisa, & Tharsis, Kitthim, and Donanim. 5Of these were the Iles of the gentiles deuided in their landes, euery one after his tongue, and after his kinrede, in their nations.

The Hamites

6The children of Ham, Chus: and Mizraim, and Phut, and Chanaan. 7And the children of Chus: Seba, and Hauilah, and Sabthah, and Raamah, and Sabtheca. 8The children of Raamah: Seba, and Dedan, Chus also begat Nimrod. 9The same began to be mightie in the earth, for he was a mightie hunter before the Lorde: Wherfore it is sayde, Euen as Nimrod the mightie hunter before the Lorde. 10The begynnyng of his kingdome was Babel, and Erech, & Arab, and Calueh, in the lande of Sinar. 11Out of that lande came Assur, and builded Niniue, and the citie Rehoboth, and Calah, 12Resen also betweene Niniue & Chalah, and it is a great citie. 13Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Nephthuim, 14Pathrusim also, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philisthiim) & Capthorim.

15Chanaan begat Sidon his first borne sonne, and Heth, 16And Iebusi, and Emori, and Girgasi, 17And Hiui also, and Arki, and Sini, 18And Aruadi, and Semari, and Hamathi: and afterwarde were the kinredes of the Chanaanites spread abrode. 19The border of the Chanaanites was from Sidon as thou commest to Gerar vnto Azah, and as thou goest vnto Sodoma and Gomorra, and Adama, and Seboim, euen vnto Lesa. 20These are the children of Ham in their kinredes, in their tongues, countreys, and in their nations.

The Semites

21Unto Sem also the father of all the children of Heber, and elder brother of Iapheth, there were chyldren borne. 22The chyldren of Sem: Elam, and Assur, Arpharad, and Lud, and Aram. 23The chyldren of Aram: Us, and Hul, Gether, and Mas. 24Arphaxad begat Selah, and Selah begat Heber. 25Unto Heber also were borne two sonnes: the name of the one was Peleg, for in his dayes was the earth deuided, and his brothers name was Iactan. 26Iactan begat Almodad, and Saleph, Hazarmaueth, and Ierah, 27And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Dicla, 28Obal also, and Abimael, and Seba, 29And Ophir, and Hauilah, and Iobab, all these were the chyldren of Iactan. 30And their dwelling was from Mesa, as thou goest vnto Sapher, a mount of the east. 31These are the chyldren of Sem after their kinredes and tongues, in their landes and nations.

32And so these are the kinredes of the chyldren of Noah after their generations in their peoples: and of these were the nations deuided in the earth after the flood.
