These are the generations of Shem. Shem’s descendants had their own languages, tribes, and land. Shem was Japheth’s older brother. One of Shem’s descendants was Eber, the father of all the Hebrew people. Shem’s sons were Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram.
Aram was the ancestor of Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash. Arphaxad was the father of Shelah. Shelah was the father of Eber. Eber was the father of two sons. One son was named Peleg. Peleg was given this name because the earth was divided during his life.
The other son was named Joktan. Joktan was the ancestor of Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, Obal, Abimael, Sheba, Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. They lived in the area between Mesha and the hill country in the East.
Mesha was toward the country of Sephar. These are the people from the family of Shem. They are arranged by families, languages, countries, and nations.
