1: Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
2: The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
3: And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
4: And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
5: By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
6: And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.
7: And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtecha: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.
8: And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
9: He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.
10: And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
11: Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,
12: And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.
13: And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,
14: And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,) and Caphtorim.
15: And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth,
16: And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite,
17: And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,
18: And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.
19: 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.
20: These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.
21: Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.
22: The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.
23: And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.
24: And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.
25: 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.
26: And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazar-maveth, and Jerah,
27: And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,
28: And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,
29: And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan.
30: And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar a mount of the east.
31: These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
32: 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.
1: And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
2: 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.
3: And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.
4: 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.
5: And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
6: 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.
7: Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.
8: So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
9: 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.
10: These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:
11: And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.
12: And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:
13: And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.
14: And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:
15: And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters.
16: And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:
17: And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters.
18: And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:
19: And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and begat sons and daughters.
20: And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:
21: And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters.
22: And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:
23: And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.
24: And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah:
25: And Nahor lived after he begat Terah an hundred and nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters.
26: And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
27: Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.
28: And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.
29: 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.
30: But Sarai was barren; she had no child.
31: 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.
32: And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.
