6 The sons of Ham: Cush, Egypt, Put, and Canaan.7 The sons of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.8 Cush fathered Nimrod; he was the first on earth to be a mighty man.[a]9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord. Therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the Lord.”10 The beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.11 From that land he went into Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth-Ir, Calah, and12 Resen between Nineveh and Calah; that is the great city.13 Egypt fathered Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim,14 Pathrusim, Casluhim (from whom[b] the Philistines came), and Caphtorim.
15 Canaan fathered Sidon his firstborn and Heth,16 and the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgashites,17 the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites,18 the Arvadites, the Zemarites, and the Hamathites. Afterward the clans of the Canaanites dispersed.19 And the territory of the Canaanites extended from Sidon in the direction of Gerar as far as Gaza, and in the direction of Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha.20 These are the sons of Ham, by their clans, their languages, their lands, and their nations.
