porro Chus genuit Nemrod ipse coepit esse potens in terra

et erat robustus venator coram Domino ab hoc exivit proverbium quasi Nemrod robustus venator coram Domino

10 fuit autem principium regni eius Babylon et Arach et Archad et Chalanne in terra Sennaar

11 de terra illa egressus est Assur et aedificavit Nineven et plateas civitatis et Chale

12 Resen quoque inter Nineven et Chale haec est civitas magna

13 at vero Mesraim genuit Ludim et Anamim et Laabim Nepthuim

14 et Phetrusim et Cesluim de quibus egressi sunt Philisthim et Capthurim

15 Chanaan autem genuit Sidonem primogenitum suum Ettheum

16 et Iebuseum et Amorreum Gergeseum

17 Eveum et Araceum Sineum

18 et Aradium Samariten et Amatheum et post haec disseminati sunt populi Chananeorum

19 factique sunt termini Chanaan venientibus a Sidone Geraram usque Gazam donec ingrediaris Sodomam et Gomorram et Adama et Seboim usque Lesa

20 hii filii Ham in cognationibus et linguis et generationibus terrisque et gentibus suis

21 de Sem quoque nati sunt patre omnium filiorum Eber fratre Iafeth maiore

22 filii Sem Aelam et Assur et Arfaxad et Lud et Aram

23 filii Aram Us et Hul et Gether et Mes

24 at vero Arfaxad genuit Sala de quo ortus est Eber

25 natique sunt Eber filii duo nomen uni Faleg eo quod in diebus eius divisa sit terra et nomen fratris eius Iectan

26 qui Iectan genuit Helmodad et Saleph et Asarmoth Iare

27 et Aduram et Uzal Decla

28 et Ebal et Abimahel Saba

29 et Ophir et Evila et Iobab omnes isti filii Iectan

30 et facta est habitatio eorum de Messa pergentibus usque Sephar montem orientalem

31 isti filii Sem secundum cognationes et linguas et regiones in gentibus suis

32 hae familiae Noe iuxta populos et nationes suas ab his divisae sunt gentes in terra post diluvium

Genesis 10New International Version (NIV)

The Table of Nations

10 This is the account of Shem, Ham and Japheth, Noah’s sons, who themselves had sons after the flood.

The Japhethites

The sons[a] of Japheth:

Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshek and Tiras.

The sons of Gomer:

Ashkenaz, Riphath and Togarmah.

The sons of Javan:

Elishah, Tarshish, the Kittites and the Rodanites.[b] (From these the maritime peoples spread out into their territories by their clans within their nations, each with its own language.)

The Hamites

The sons of Ham:

Cush, Egypt, Put and Canaan.

The sons of Cush:

Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah and Sabteka.

The sons of Raamah:

Sheba and Dedan.

Cush was the father[c] of Nimrod, who became a mighty warrior on the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the Lord; that is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the Lord.” 10 The first centers of his kingdom were Babylon, Uruk, Akkad and Kalneh, in[d] Shinar.[e] 11 From that land he went to Assyria, where he built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir,[f] Calah 12 and Resen, which is between Nineveh and Calah—which is the great city.

13 Egypt was the father of

the Ludites, Anamites, Lehabites, Naphtuhites, 14 Pathrusites, Kasluhites (from whom the Philistines came) and Caphtorites.

15 Canaan was the father of

Sidon his firstborn,[g] and of the Hittites, 16 Jebusites, Amorites, Girgashites, 17 Hivites, Arkites, Sinites, 18 Arvadites, Zemarites and Hamathites.

Later the Canaanite clans scattered 19 and the borders of Canaan reached from Sidon toward Gerar as far as Gaza, and then toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboyim, as far as Lasha.

20 These are the sons of Ham by their clans and languages, in their territories and nations.

The Semites

21 Sons were also born to Shem, whose older brother was[h] Japheth; Shem was the ancestor of all the sons of Eber.

22 The sons of Shem:

Elam, Ashur, Arphaxad, Lud and Aram.

23 The sons of Aram:

Uz, Hul, Gether and Meshek.[i]

24 Arphaxad was the father of[j] Shelah,

and Shelah the father of Eber.

25 Two sons were born to Eber:

One was named Peleg,[k] because in his time the earth was divided; his brother was named Joktan.

26 Joktan was the father of

Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28 Obal, Abimael, Sheba, 29 Ophir, Havilah and Jobab. All these were sons of Joktan.

30 The region where they lived stretched from Mesha toward Sephar, in the eastern hill country.

31 These are the sons of Shem by their clans and languages, in their territories and nations.

32 These are the clans of Noah’s sons, according to their lines of descent, within their nations. From these the nations spread out over the earth after the flood.
