And the sons of Ra′a·mah were She′ba and De′dan.+
8 And Cush became father to Nim′rod.+ He made the start in becoming a mighty one* in the earth. 9 He displayed himself a mighty hunter* in opposition to* Jehovah. That is why there is a saying: “Just like Nim′rod a mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah.”+ 10 And the beginning of his kingdom came to be Ba′bel*+ and E′rech+ and Ac′cad and Cal′neh, in the land of Shi′nar.+ 11 Out of that land he went forth into As·syr′i·a+ and set himself to building Nin′e·veh+ and Re·ho′both-Ir and Ca′lah 12 and Re′sen between Nin′e·veh and Ca′lah: this is the great city.
15 And Ca′naan became father to Si′don+ his firstborn and Heth+ 16 and the Jeb′u·site+ and the Am′or·ite+ and the Gir′ga·shite 17 and the Hi′vite+ and the Ark′ite and the Si′nite 18 and the Ar′vad·ite+ and the Zem′a·rite and the Ha′math·ite;+ and afterward the families of the Ca′naan·ite were scattered. 19 So the boundary of the Ca′naan·ite came to be from Si′don as far as Ge′rar,+ near Ga′za,+ as far as Sod′om and Go·mor′rah+ and Ad′mah+ and Ze·boi′im,+ near La′sha.* 20 These were the sons of Ham according to their families, according to their tongues, in their lands, by their nations.
21 And to Shem, the forefather of all the sons of E′ber,+ the brother of Ja′pheth the oldest, there was also progeny born. 22 The sons of Shem were E′lam+ and As′shur+ and Ar·pach′shad+ and Lud and A′ram.
24 And Ar·pach′shad became father to She′lah,+ and She′lah became father to E′ber.
26 And Jok′tan became father to Al·mo′dad and She′leph and Ha·zar·ma′veth and Je′rah+ 27 and Ha·do′ram and U′zal and Dik′lah+ 28 and O′bal and A·bim′a·el and She′ba+ 29 and O′phir+ and Hav′i·lah+ and Jo′bab;+ all these were the sons of Jok′tan.
30 And their place of dwelling came to extend from Me′sha as far as Se′phar, the mountainous region of the East.
