Bereishis (Book of Genesis), Chapter 10

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and unto them were sons born after the flood.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 And the sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 And the sons of Javan: Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 Of these were the isles of the nations divided in their lands, every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 And the sons of Ham: Cush, and Mizraim, and Put, and Canaan.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 And the sons of Cush: Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah: Sheba, and Dedan.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 And Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one in the earth.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 He was a mighty hunter before HaShem; wherefore it is said: 'Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before HaShem.'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and Rehoboth-ir, and Calah,

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah--the same is the great city.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 And Mizraim begot Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 and Pathrusim, and Casluhim--whence went forth the Philistines--and Caphtorim.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 And Canaan begot Zidon his firstborn, and Heth;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgashite;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 and the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 and the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite; and afterward were the families of the Canaanite spread abroad.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 And the border of the Canaanite was from Zidon, as thou goest toward Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest toward Sodom and Gomorrah and Admah and Zeboiim, unto Lasha.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, in their nations.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 And unto Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the elder brother of Japheth, to him also were children born.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 The sons of Shem: Elam, and Asshur, and Arpachshad, and Lud, and Aram.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 And the sons of Aram: Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 And Arpachshad begot Shelah; and Shelah begot Eber.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 And unto Eber were born two sons; the name of the one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000019-QINU`"'26 And Joktan begot Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001A-QINU`"'27 and Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001B-QINU`"'28 and Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001C-QINU`"'29 and Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab; all these were the sons of Joktan.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001D-QINU`"'30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest toward Sephar, unto the mountain of the east.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001E-QINU`"'31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001F-QINU`"'32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations; and of these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
