the Arvadites, the Zemarites, and the Hamathites. Later the Canaanite families scattered.
The border of the Canaanites extended from Sidon toward Gerar as far as Gaza and then toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim as far as Lasha.
These were Ham's descendants by families and languages within their countries and nations.
Shem, Japheth's older brother, also had children. [Shem was] the ancestor of all the sons of Eber.
Shem's descendants were Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud, and Aram.
Aram's descendants were Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash.
Arpachshad was the father of Shelah, and Shelah was the father of Eber.
Two sons were born to Eber. The name of the one was Peleg [Division], because in his day the earth was divided. His brother's name was Joktan.
Joktan was the father of Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah,
Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,
Obal, Abimael, Sheba,
Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. These were Joktan's sons.
The region where they lived extended from Mesha toward Sephar in the eastern mountains.
These were Shem's descendants by families and languages within their countries according to their nations.
These were the families of Noah's sons listed by their genealogies, nation by nation. From these [descendants] the nations spread over the earth after the flood.
