This is the account of Shem, Ham and Japheth, Noah’s sons, who themselves had sons after the flood.
The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshek and Tiras.
The sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Riphath and Togarmah.
The sons of Javan: Elishah, Tarshish, the Kittites and the Rodanites.
(From these the maritime peoples spread out into their territories by their clans within their nations, each with its own language.)
The sons of Ham: Cush, Egypt, Put and Canaan.
The sons of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah and Sabteka. The sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.
Cush was the father of Nimrod, who became a mighty warrior on the earth.
He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; that is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the LORD.”
The first centers of his kingdom were Babylon, Uruk, Akkad and Kalneh, in Shinar.
