Genesis 10: 21-32

Chapter 10
21 To Shem also, Japheth's oldest brother and the ancestor of all the children of Eber, sons were born.

22 The descendants of Shem: Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud, and Aram.

23 The descendants of Aram: Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash.

24 Arpachshad became the father of Shelah, and Shelah became the father of Eber.

25 13 To Eber two sons were born: the name of the first was Peleg, for in his time the world was divided; and the name of his brother was Joktan.

26 Joktan became the father of Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah,

27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,

28 Obal, Abimael, Sheba,

29 Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab. All these were descendants of Joktan.

30 Their settlements extended all the way to Sephar, the eastern hill country.

31 These are the descendants of Shem, according to their clans and languages by their lands and nations.

32 These are the groupings of Noah's sons, according to their origins and by their nations. From these the other nations of the earth branched out after the flood.

Reflection: The world was begun anew. These families were to go forth a populate the world again. The plan was this time there would be less evil. Sin had taken over and demons inhabited the earth. We often think that we live in the worst of times. I wonder if that is true. I know that my fellow man is capable of very evil tasks. I hear the news but I wonder how it compares. Are the numbers just as bad? Do we in this generation stand a better chance because we have the forgiveness of Christ so readily available? The world, for the most part, has heard His word, does that help? or are we living in a time that God wants to destroy all mankind? I know some wonderful people so I guess not. Lord, deliver us from evil!
