Genesis 10New Life Version (NLV)

The Families after Noah’s Sons

10 These are the families of Shem, Ham and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and of their families. Sons were born to them after the flood.

The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah. The sons of Javan were Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. From these the people who live beside the sea spread out into their lands, each one by his language, family, and nation.

The sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. The sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan. Cush became the father of Nimrod, who was the first on earth to become a powerful man. He was a powerful animal-killer in the eyes of the Lord. So it is said, “Like Nimrod, a powerful animal-killer in the eyes of the Lord.” 10 The beginning of his nation was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11 He went into Assyria from the land, and built Nineveh, Rehoboth-Ir, Calah 12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah. That is the great city. 13 Mizraim became the father of Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, 14 Pathrusim, Casluhim (from which came the Philistines), and Caphtorim.

15 Canaan became the father of Sidon, his first-born, and Heth, 16 and the Jebusite, the Amorite, the Girgashite, 17 the Hivite, the Arkite, the Sinite, 18 the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. Later the Canaanite families spread out. 19 So the land of the Canaanite was from Sidon toward Gerar as far as Gaza, then toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim as far as Lasha. 20 These are the sons of Ham, by their families, languages, lands and nations.

21 Children were born to Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, and the older brother of Japheth. 22 The sons of Shem were Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud, and Aram. 23 The sons of Aram were Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash. 24 Arpachshad became the father of Shelah. Shelah became the father of Eber. 25 Eber had two sons. The name of one was Peleg, for the earth was divided in his day. The name of his brother was Joktan. 26 Joktan became the father of Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, 27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, 28 Obal, Abimael, Sheba, 29 Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All these were the sons of Joktan. 30 The land where they lived was from Mesha toward Sephar to the hill country of the east. 31 These are the sons of Shem, by their families, languages, lands and nations.

32 These are the families of the sons of Noah. From these family groups, nations were spread over the earth after the flood.
