The Families and Generations of Ham

Updated as of February 2022

The Families and Generations of Ham. Written as the family of Ham, truly the offspring under Ham are Japheth’s offspring. Thus, Japheth’s descendants had their own languages, tribes, and land. They were Ethiopia, Egypt, Put, and Canaan. Anciently they were known as Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. Cush’s sons were Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca.

Raamah’s sons were Sheba and Dedan. Cush was also the ancestor of Nimrod, a mighty warrior whose strength came from the ALMIGHTY. Nimrod is the reason for the saying, “You hunt like Nimrod with the strength of the LORD!”

Nimrod first ruled in Babylon, Erech, and Accad, all of which were in Babylonia. From there Nimrod went to Assyria and built the great city of Nineveh, through Asshur. However, Asshur may have done this independently of Nimrod. He also built Rehoboth-Ir and Calah, as well as Resen, which is between Nineveh and Calah.

the Generations and Families of Ham

Egypt (Mizraim) was the ancestor of Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, Pathrusim, Casluhim, and Caphtorim, the ancestor of the Philistines. Canaan’s sons were Sidon and Heth. He was also the ancestor of the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgashites, the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites, the Arvadites, the Zemarites, and the Hamathites.

The families of Canaan spread to different parts of the world, but first they were south of Egypt and Ethiopia (or Cush). The land where the Canaanites lived went from Sidon down along the coast to Gerar and from Gaza as far east as Sodom and Gomorrah and from Admah and Zeboiim as far north as Laish. See our work, Africa is the Land of Shem for details.

All these people were descendants of Ham Japheth. They are arranged by families, languages, countries, and nations.

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

20 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.

It’s a Mistake to Think These are All Modern Day Africans

The children of Ham Japheth are a big family that produced great civilizations. They were some of the early founders of the civilized world on this side of the flood. Nimrod, the grandson of Cush, the son of Ham Japheth, was one of the world’s first recognized world ruler.

He is responsible for gathering the people together against the Great Spirit’s designs. Nimrod orchestrated a tower to reach to heaven, galvanizing the people against the ALMIGHTY. Nimrod was a Cushite, or as the Greeks called them, Athiop (Ethiop, Ethiopian).

They were one of the sons of Ham Japheth. The remaining families of Ham Japheth were Mizraim (Egypt), Put, and Canaan. It is commonly thought the children of Ham Japheth are the progenitors of the “black” and African ethnic groups and races. It would be a mistake to land on such conclusions exclusively! They are part of the family of the African ethnic groups today.

      Why is HAM crossed out and JAPETH put there. I thought HAM was the Father of Egypt and the Asian nations

      • Hey Steven, seems you actually asked the question that many just overlooked. Research and revelations are showing the vast adding to and taking away from the Biblical story. Japheth is indeed the father to the east Africans, and Shem is the father to the west Africans, according to new revelations and research. See this video for additional clarity: Cush Canaan Phut and Mizraim are Sons of Japheth

    why did you stop with that statement… through research Ham was, Gen 9:20-27…every race in the world has always made individuals of darker complexion their servants…no other race was capable of enduring torment and surviving…no matter the affliction, they still multiplied and remain great…

    • Hey Brenda, thanks for your comment. I believe we continue the next post…

  3. Psalm31 Psalm31

    Hello. Some of the information in this reading is incorrect. The information I’m about to share with you is located in Genesis 10. For those that might be unaware Nimord is the grandson of Ham, and the son of Cush. From what I read in the book of Genesis Nimrod was a mighty hunter before The MOST HIGH YAHWEH, and Nimrod didn’t arrange for the Tower of Babel to be built to the heavens. Just go over Genesis 11: 1-4, Nimrod is not mentioned in that. From what I got out of Genesis 10:9-10 Nimrod had a kingdom (country, region) named Babel. Nimrod also had nothing to do with his people turning away from YAHWEH. If I’m wrong please correct me, but that’s what I read.

    • Hi Psalm31, THANK you for the comment. You are incorrect but it would not be possible to show you via the Bible alone. We’re putting a full account of the historical records together and will share them VERY SOON. Elohim bless and keep you and thank you again.

      But what did Nimrod hunt or should I say who. He hunted PEOPLE ; he was the very first slave trader.

      • Dwight, Cain and his descendants would have been the first slave traders…

  4. Pamela Smith Pamela Smith

    Why are black people, African people still ruled by every race? I understand the American black people are restrained through generations of or by some form of slavery even to this day. Where in the Bible does it say black people are subject as servants to the white race and Asian race. After looking at Hams son Canaan it doesn’t say Canaan is a black race it says it is the people of a light skin , the people of Lebanon. Please help me

    • See your email; I emailed you a response. Thank you Sis Pamela.

    In your explanation, am yet to understand from you again, where exactly is the black man originated from since, in every race probably the white-race most of its trace you can easily understand. But where exactly is the Black man from in any biblical teachings

    • The black man originates from Shem’s and Japheth. The Bible calls Japheth, Ham, and Ham, Japheth. Shem was in West Africa, and Japheth East Africa (Mizraim, Phut, Cush, Canaan). Canaan ventured south. This is not what is represented in the scriptures, Amos, but it is the truth that is being revealed today! See our project @

    So we agree that Noah and those before him were all black people? Reading the book of Enoch she’d some light on some inaccuracies/lies deliberately perpetuated by the council of niacea in misleading the world. With that being said I took from my strength from Mark 4:22 and indeed all the truth that they tried to conceal is demanding to be known as it is. Also intriguing to me is my belief that what we today call Africa’s actual name is Eden and not alkebulan, the latter which I think came after. Please correct me if I am wrong. I am happy to come across such insightful peoe as you are. Do keep up the good work and keep me in your group

    • Welcome brother Malefane,mostly everyone in the scriptures would be what we consider “Black/African” today. We have two other sister sites and Hopefully we converse more as you study and these things are revealed to you through the Spirit of the Great Creator.

    This doesn’t appear to be a Christian website. The information contained therein isn’t reliable.

    • Hi Dwight, there is some truth to your statement “This doesn’t appear to be a Christian website.” We are a Bible based site and some things from the Bible aren’t always aligned with the mainstream Christian theology. It doesn’t mean we’re not sincere and care deeply about everyone who visits this site. We’re all growing, walking, and doing our best to get close to our Creator.

    How can one be Bible based and not be Christian??

    When the entire Scriptures from Old to New Testament testify of Christ.
    Chris is the seed of the woman who was promised in Genesis 3:15 to save mankind from theor sins and to give them eternal life through Him.

    So it is impossible to reconcile the statement of being Biblical yet not Christian.

    Half of what you are saying in this article is not biblical period because. The Bible is clear that after the flood, the entire world was repopulated by Noah’s three sons, yet you are saying Ham’s descendants are really Japheth’s?

    Stop trying to prove black people to be the ancestors of all races.
    None of this even repevant for salvation.

    I myself am a black person bu5 honestly some people take this black empowerment thing to a whole other life.

    Stop focusing on these unnecessary things and BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ that your name may be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

    Im sorry my brother, but you are deceived and blinded by Satan.

    In tye beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.
    That Word, who is Christ, became flesh and dwelt among humanity.
    He is God’s thoughts made audible. He is the Word and the Scriptures from beginning to end, point to Him.

    • Brother M, that is a good question. Christian is to be like-Christ, and according to the Christ, he persuaded men to be as he was because he and the Father were one. So the idea is to be like-Christ thus a Christian.

      However, to be a Christian has been linked to the ideology of the religion and not the tenets taught by the Christ. There is our separation. Are you living Matthew chapter’s 5, 6, and 7? If so, you are a bible based Christian. If not, you are worldly professing Christian.

      Now to the concerns you have about this particular article. Half of what I’m saying is not biblical.

      I would have to agree with you because the Bible has been demontratively tampered with. Writings have been removed, and writing have been added, falsely. So with discernment of the Holy Spirit, you will see with this ministry things that are not exactly “biblical” according to our modern-day bibles. See this book for details:

      We are not ideally trying to prove black people are the ancestors to all races. I personally understand the flesh profited nothing, the words…

      So we are not too concerned with proving black this or black that. Nevertheless, we do visually perceive tree trunks as brown and their leaves green. Why? It is because these are just matters of our perception and description. The scriptures are now proving through perception and description of geo markers and the people in those areas to be what you would call black.

      Stop making it a race thing and accept that trees are brown in the trunks and green in the leaves; it is just nature.

      I’m sorry Satan has blinded the entire world, so that when truth is presented, it is perceived as the lie. It is really unfortunate.

      May the Spirit come upon you, thank you for commenting.
