Bible: Genesis 10:6-20

10:6 The sons of Ham were Cush, 1  Mizraim, 2  Put, 3  and Canaan. 4  10:7 The sons of Cush were Seba, 5  Havilah, 6  Sabtah, 7  Raamah, 8  and Sabteca. 9  The sons of Raamah were Sheba 10  and Dedan. 11 

10:8 Cush was the father of 12  Nimrod; he began to be a valiant warrior on the earth. 10:9 He was a mighty hunter 13  before the Lord. 14  (That is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the Lord.”) 10:10 The primary regions 15  of his kingdom were Babel, 16  Erech, 17  Akkad, 18  and Calneh 19  in the land of Shinar. 20  10:11 From that land he went 21  to Assyria, 22  where he built Nineveh, 23  Rehoboth-Ir, 24  Calah, 25  10:12 and Resen, which is between Nineveh and the great city Calah. 26 

10:13 Mizraim 27  was the father of 28  the Ludites, 29  Anamites, 30  Lehabites, 31  Naphtuhites, 32  10:14 Pathrusites, 33  Casluhites 34  (from whom the Philistines came), 35  and Caphtorites. 36 

10:15 Canaan was the father of 37  Sidon his firstborn, 38  Heth, 39  10:16 the Jebusites, 40  Amorites, 41  Girgashites, 42  10:17 Hivites, 43  Arkites, 44  Sinites, 45  10:18 Arvadites, 46  Zemarites, 47  and Hamathites. 48  Eventually the families of the Canaanites were scattered 10:19 and the borders of Canaan extended 49  from Sidon 50  all the way to 51  Gerar as far as Gaza, and all the way to 52  Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha. 10:20 These are the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their languages, by their lands, and by their nations.
