Genesis 10: Shem, Ham, Japheth, and their children

Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were born sons after the flood.

The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Ripath, and Togarmah,

And the sons of Javan, Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

And the sons of Ham: Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.

And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtechah: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.

And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the Earth.

He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.

And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, aand Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,

And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.

And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Aamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,

And Patrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whome came Philistim,) and Caphtorim.

And Canaan begat Sidon his first born, and Heth,

And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite,

And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,

And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.

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.

These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.

Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.

The Children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.

And the Children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.

And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.

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.

And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,

And Hadoram, and Uzai, and Diklah,

And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheb,

And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan.

And their dwelling ws from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar a mount of the east.

These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.

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.

Closing Thoughts

This is a huge list of characters. A lot of them will be important later as entire countries that the future Israel will have to fight. Most notably Caanan, Asshur, and Casluhim (The Philistine originators).

For now, the most important one of all the line will be Peleg, his line is special. Keep keeping his line in mind. Caanan will be Israel’s first big threat, Casluhim’s Philistines will arrive as the Sea peoples in around 1100 BC and never leave, and Asshur, who is Assyria… *Sounds of death and destruction* We’ll get to him when we get to him.

For any Scholars of the Holy Scriptures, I would appreciate edification as I go along with this that I don’t lead anyone astray.
