Table of the Nations. * 1These are the descendants of Noah's sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, to whom sons were born after the flood.

2 c 2–8: 1 Chr 1, 5–10 . The descendants of Japheth: Gomer,* Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech and Tiras. d Ez 38, 2 . 3The descendants of Gomer: Ashkenaz,* Riphath and Togarmah. 4The descendants of Javan: Elishah,* Tarshish, the Kittim and the Rodanim.

5These are the descendants of Japheth, and from them sprang the maritime nations, in their respective lands—each with its own language—by their clans within their nations.

6The descendants of Ham: Cush,* Mizraim, Put and Canaan. 7The descendants of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah and Sabteca. The descendants of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.

8Cush* became the father of Nimrod, who was the first potentate on earth. 9He was a mighty hunter by the grace of the LORD; hence the saying, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter by the grace of the LORD.” 10The chief cities of his kingdom were Babylon, Erech and Accad, all of them in the land of Shinar.* 11From that land he went forth to Asshur,* where he built Nineveh, Rehoboth‐Ir and Calah, 12as well as Resen, between Nineveh and Calah,* the latter being the principal city.

13 e 13–18: 1 Chr 1, 11–16 . Mizraim became the father of the Ludim, the Anamim, the Lehabim, the Naphtuhim, 14the Pathrusim,* the Casluhim, and the Caphtorim from whom the Philistines sprang.

15Canaan became the father of Sidon, his first‐born, and of Heth;* 16also of the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgashites, 17the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites, 18the Arvadites, the Zemarites and the Hamathites. Afterward, the clans of the Canaanites spread out, 19so that the Canaanite borders extended from Sidon all the way to Gerar, near Gaza, and all the way to Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, near Lasha*

20These are the descendants of Ham, according to their clans and languages, by their lands and nations.

21To Shem also, Japheth's oldest brother and the ancestor of all the children of Eber, sons were born.

22 f 22–29: 1 Chr 1, 17–23 . The descendants of Shem: Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud and Aram. 23The descendants of Aram: Uz, Hul, Gether and Mash.

24Arpachshad became the father of Shelah, and Shelah became the father of Eber. 25To Eber two sons were born: the name of the first was Peleg, for in his time the world was divided;* and the name of his brother was Joktan.

26Joktan became the father of Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28Obal, Abimael, Sheba 29Ophir, Havilah and Jobab. All these were descendants of Joktan. 30Their settlements extended all the way to Sephar, the eastern hill country.

31These are the descendants of Shem, according to their clans and languages, by their lands and nations.

32These are the groupings of Noah's sons, according to their origins and by their nations. From these the other nations of the earth branched out after the flood.
