Pamphlet #6254 Genesis KC 19-6
so it was, as the sons of Noah and their descendants
moved against the gentiles,
that the nations were divided in the earth.
We continue now with the generations.
Genesis 10:11 Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,  And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.  And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,  And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,) and Caphtorim.  And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth,  And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite,  And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,  And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.  And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest, unto Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, even unto Lasha.  These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.
 Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.
It is from "eber" that we get "ebrews"
who were the people who came from across the great river Euphrates.
 The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.  And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.  And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.  And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.  And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazar-maveth, and Jerah,  And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,  And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,  And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan.  And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar a mount of the east.
 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
