Genesis 10
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1NOW these are the descendants of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and to them were sons born after the flood.

2The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Mongolia, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. 3And the sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Diphar, and Togarmah. 4And the sons of Javan: Elishah, Tarshish, China, and Doranim. 5It was from these that the people were divided into the Islands of the Gentiles and their main lands; every one after his language, after their families, in their nations.

6And the sons of Ham: Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. 7And the sons of Cush: Sheba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabtechah. And the sons of Raamah: Sheba, and Daran. 8And Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth. 9He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod was a mighty hunter before the LORD. 10And the beginning of his kingdom was Babylon, Erech, Akhar, and Caliah, in the land of Sinar. 11Out of Sinar went forth the Assyrian and built Nineveh, and the city of Rehoboth, and Calah, 12And Resen which lies between Nineveh and Calah; the same is a great city. 13And Mizraim begot Ludim and Anamim and Lehabim and Naphtuhim 14And Pathrusim and Casluhim (out of whom came the Philistines) and Caphtorim.

15And Canaan begot Sidon, his first-born, and Heth, 16And the Jebusite, the Amorite, the Girgasite, 17And the Havite, the Arkite, the Sinite, 18And the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite; and afterward the families of the Canaanites spread abroad. 19And the border of the Canaanites extended from Sidon, which is at the entrance of Gadar, as far as Gaza; which is at the entrance of Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, as far as Lasha. 20These are the sons of Ham, after their families and their languages, in their lands and in their nations.

21To Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the elder brother of Japheth, even to him were children born. 22The sons of Shem: Elam, Asshur, Arphakhashar, Lud and Aram. 23And the children of Aram: Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash. 24And Arphakhashar begot Shalah; and Shalah begot Eber. 25And to Eber were born two sons: the name of the one was Peleg; for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother's name was Joktan. 26And Joktan begot Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28Obal, Abimael, and Sheba, 29Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab; all these were sons of Joktan. 30The lands which they inhabited extended from Mesha, which is at the entrance of Sepharvim, a mount in the east. 31These are the sons of Shem, after their families, their languages, in their lands, after their nations.

32These are the descendants of the sons of Noah, according to their families, in their nations: and from these the people spread abroad on the earth after the flood.
