Genesis (Author Moses)

10:1And these are the generations of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and to them were sons born after the flood.

10:2The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

10:3And the sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.

10:4And the sons of Javan: Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.

10:5From these came the distribution of the isles of the nations, according to their lands, every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.

10:6And the sons of Ham: Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.

10:7And the sons of Cush: Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtecha. And the sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.

10:8And Cush begot Nimrod: he began to be mighty on the earth.

10:9He was a mighty hunter before Jehovah; therefore it is said, As Nimrod, the mighty hunter before Jehovah!

10:10And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

10:11From that land went out Asshur, and built Nineveh, and Rehoboth-Ir, and Calah,

10:12and Resen, between Nineveh and Calah: this is the great city.

10:13-- And Mizraim begot the Ludim, and the Anamim, and the Lehabim, and the Naphtuhim,

10:14and the Pathrusim, and the Casluhim, out of whom came the Philistines, and the Caphtorim.

10:15-- And Canaan begot Sidon, his firstborn, and Heth,

10:16and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgashite,

10:17and the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,

10:18and the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. And afterwards the families of the Canaanites spread themselves abroad.

10:19And the border of the Canaanite was from Sidon, as one goes to Gerar, up to Gazah; as one goes to Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, up to Lesha.

10:20These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, in their nations.

10:21And to Shem -- to him also were sons born; he is the father of all the sons of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder.

10:22The sons of Shem: Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.

10:23And the sons of Aram: Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.

10:24-- And Arphaxad begot Shelah; and Shelah begot Eber.

10:25And to 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.

10:26And Joktan begot Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,

10:27and Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,

10:28and Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,

10:29and Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were sons of Joktan.

10:30And their dwelling was from Mesha, as one goes to Sephar, the eastern mountain.

10:31These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.

10:32These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations. And from these came the distribution of the nations on the earth after the flood.

11:1And the whole earth had one language, and the same words.

11:2And it came to pass as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and dwelt there.

11:3And they said one to another, Come on, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar.

11:4And they said, Come on, let us build ourselves a city and a tower, the top of which may reach to the heavens; and let us make ourselves a name, lest we be scattered over the face of the whole earth.

11:5And Jehovah came down to see the city and the tower which the children of men built.

11:6And Jehovah said, Behold, the people is one, and have all one language; and this have they begun to do. And now will they be hindered in nothing that they meditate doing.

11:7Come, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

11:8And Jehovah scattered them thence over the face of the whole earth. And they left off building the city.

11:9Therefore was its name called Babel; because Jehovah there confounded the language of the whole earth. And Jehovah scattered them thence over the face of the whole earth.

11:10These are the generations of Shem. Shem was a hundred years old, and begot Arphaxad two years after the flood.

11:11And Shem lived after he had begotten Arphaxad five hundred years, and begot sons and daughters.

11:12And Arphaxad lived thirty-five years, and begot Shelah.

11:13And Arphaxad lived after he had begotten Shelah four hundred and three years, and begot sons and daughters.

11:14And Shelah lived thirty years, and begot Eber.

11:15And Shelah lived after he had begotten Eber four hundred and three years, and begot sons and daughters.

11:16And Eber lived thirty-four years, and begot Peleg.

11:17And Eber lived after he had begotten Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begot sons and daughters.

11:18And Peleg lived thirty years, and begot Reu.

11:19And Peleg lived after he had begotten Reu two hundred and nine years, and begot sons and daughters.

11:20And Reu lived thirty-two years, and begot Serug.

11:21And Reu lived after he had begotten Serug two hundred and seven years, and begot sons and daughters.

11:22And Serug lived thirty years, and begot Nahor.

11:23And Serug lived after he had begotten Nahor two hundred years, and begot sons and daughters.

11:24And Nahor lived twenty-nine years, and begot Terah.

11:25And Nahor lived after he had begotten Terah a hundred and nineteen years, and begot sons and daughters.

11:26And Terah lived seventy years, and begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran.

11:27And these are the generations of Terah: Terah begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begot Lot.

11:28And Haran died before the face of his father Terah in the land of his nativity at Ur of the Chaldeans.

11:29And Abram and Nahor took wives: the name of Abram's wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, a daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah and the father of Iscah.

11:30And Sarai was barren: she had no child.

11:31And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth together out of Ur of the Chaldeans, to go into the land of Canaan, and came as far as Haran, and dwelt there.

11:32And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years; and Terah died in Haran.
