Now this is the history of the generations of the sons of Noach and of Shem, Ham, and Yefet. Sons were born to them after the flood.
The sons of Yefet: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Yavan, Tuval, Meshekh, and Tiras.
The sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Rifat, and Togarmah.
The sons of Yavan: Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
Of these were the isles of the nations divided in their lands, everyone after his language, after their families, in their nations.
The sons of Ham: Kush, Mitzrayim, Put, and Kana`an.
The sons of Kush: Seva, Havilah, Savtah, Ra`mah, and Savtekha. The sons of Ra`mah: Sheva and Dedan.
Kush became the father of Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the eretz.
He was a mighty hunter before the LORD. Therefore it is said, "Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the LORD."
The beginning of his kingdom was Bavel, Erekh, Akkad, and Kalneh, in the land of Shin`ar.
Out of that land he went forth into Ashshur, and built Nineveh, Rechovot-Ir, Kelach,
and Resen between Nineveh and Kelach (the same is the great city).
Mitzrayim became the father of Ludim, Anamim, Lehavim, Naftuchim,
Patrusim, Kasluchim (which the Pelishtim descended from), and Kaftorim.
Kana`an became the father of Tzidon (his firstborn), Het,
the Yevusi, the Amori, the Girgashi,
the Hivvi, the `Arki, the Sini,
the Arvadi, the Tzemari, and the Hamati. Afterward the families of the Kana`anim were spread abroad.
The border of the Kana`anim was from Tzidon, as you go toward Gerar, to `Aza; as you go toward Sedom, `Amorah, Admah, and Tzevoyim, to Lasha.
These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their languages, in their lands, in their nations.
To Shem, the father of all the children of `Ever, the elder brother of Yefet, to him also were children born.
The sons of Shem: `Elam, Ashshur, Arpakhshad, Lud, and Aram.
The sons of Aram: `Utz, Hul, Geter, and Mash.
Arpakhshad became the father of Shelach. Shelach became the father of `Ever.
To `Ever were born two sons. The name of the one was Peleg, for in his days was the eretz divided. His brother's name was Yoktan.
Yoktan became the father of Almodad, Shelef, Hatzarmavat, Yerach,
Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,
`Oval, Avima'el, Sheva,
Ofir, Havilah, and Yovav. All these were the sons of Yoktan.
Their dwelling was from Mesha, as you go toward Sefar, the mountain of the east.
These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their languages, in their lands, after their nations.
These are the families of the sons of Noach, after their generations, in their nations. Of these were the nations divided in the eretz after the flood.
