This is the family history of Shem, Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah. After the flood these three men had sons.
The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras.
The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah.
The sons of Javan were Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Rodanim.
Those who lived in the lands around the Mediterranean Sea came from these sons of Japheth. All the families grew and became different nations, each nation with its own land and its own language.
The sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan.
