Genesis 10, 11Â
King James Version (KJV)
10Â Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
2Â The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
3Â And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
4Â And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
5Â By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
6Â And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.
7Â And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtechah: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.
8Â And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
9Â He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord.
10Â And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
11Â Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,
12Â And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.
13Â And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,
14Â And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,) and Caphtorim.
15Â And Canaan begat Sidon his first born, and Heth,
16Â And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite,
17Â And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,
18Â And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.
19Â And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest, unto Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, even unto Lasha.
20Â These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.
21Â Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.
22Â The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.
23Â And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.
24Â And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.
25Â And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.
26Â And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,
27Â And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,
28Â And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,
29Â And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan.
30Â And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar a mount of the east.
31Â These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
32Â These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
11Â And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
2Â And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
3Â And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.
4Â And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
5Â And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
6Â And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
7Â Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.
8Â So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
9Â Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
10Â These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:
11Â And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.
12Â And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:
13Â And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.
14Â And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:
15Â And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.
16Â And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:
17Â And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters.
18Â And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:
19Â And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and begat sons and daughters.
20Â And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:
21Â And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters.
22Â And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:
23Â And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.
24Â And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah:
25Â And Nahor lived after he begat Terah an hundred and nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters.
26Â And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
27Â Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.
28Â And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.
29Â And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram’s wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor’s wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.
30Â But Sarai was barren; she had no child.
31Â And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram’s wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.
32Â And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.
