Joktan became the father of Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah,
Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,
Obal, Abimael, Sheba,
Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab; all these were the descendants of Joktan.
The territory in which they lived extended from Mesha in the direction of Sephar, the hill country of the east.
These are the descendants of Shem, by their families, their languages, their lands, and their nations.
These are the families of Noah's sons, according to their genealogies, in their nations; and from these the nations spread abroad on the earth after the flood.
