Genesis 10: 6-20

Chapter 10

6 5 The descendants of Ham: Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan.

7 The descendants of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The descendants of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.

8 6 Cush became the father of Nimrod, who was the first potentate on earth.

9 He was a mighty hunter by the grace of the LORD; hence the saying, "Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter by the grace of the LORD."

10 7 The chief cities of his kingdom were Babylon, Erech, and Accad, all of them in the land of Shinar.

11 8 From that land he went forth to Asshur, where he built Nineveh, Rehoboth-Ir, and Calah,

12 9 as well as Resen, between Nineveh and Calah, the latter being the principal city.

13 Mizraim became the father of the Ludim, the Anamim, the Lehabim, the Naphtuhim,

14 10 the Pathrusim, the Casluhim, and the Caphtorim from whom the Philistines sprang.

15 11 Canaan became the father of Sidon, his first-born, and of Heth;

16 also of the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgashites,

17 the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites,

18 the Arvadites, the Zemarites, and the Hamathites. Afterward, the clans of the Canaanites spread out,

19 12 so that the Canaanite borders extended from Sidon all the way to Gerar, near Gaza, and all the way to Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, near Lasha.

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

Reflection: The outline of family continues. We even get a little good news over Nimrod. Something we can all be proud of. He was a mighty hunter with the glory going to God. Hey I know him, he is part of my family. Sitting back reading the names at first is boring but then I remember that this is old. The stories are ancient. These people are so loved by God that he made sure that I would read their names thousands of years after their life. If they are enjoying the fruits of heaven I ask then to pray for me.
