The Sons of Ham

6 The sons of Ham were Cush, Egypt, Put and Canaan. 7 The sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah and Sabteca. The sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan. 8 Cush was the father of Nimrod. Nimrod grew up to be a mighty hero on the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter in the LORD's eyes. That's why people sometimes compare others with Nimrod. They say, "They are like Nimrod, who is a mighty hunter in the LORD's eyes." 10 At first Nimrod's kingdom was made up of Babylon, Erech, Akkad and Calneh. Those cities were in the land of Babylonia. 11 From that land he went to Assyria. There he built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir and Calah. 12 He also built Resen. It is between Nineveh and Calah. Nineveh is the great city. 13 Egypt was the father of the Ludites, Anamites, Lehabites and Naphtuhites. 14 He was also the father of the Pathrusites, Casluhites and Caphtorites. The Philistines came from the Casluhites. 15 Canaan was the father of Sidon. Sidon was his oldest son. Canaan was also the father of the Hittites, 16 Jebusites, Amorites and Girgashites. 17 And he was the father of the Hivites, Arkites, Sinites, 18 Arvadites, Zemarites and Hamathites. Later the Canaanite tribes scattered. 19 The borders of Canaan went from Sidon toward Gerar all the way to Gaza. Then they went toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim all the way to Lasha. 20 Those are the sons of Ham. They are listed by their tribes and languages in their territories and nations.
