8Cush fathered Nimrod. He began to be a mighty one in the earth.
9He was a mighty hunter before Yahweh. Therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before Yahweh.”
10The beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
11Out of that land he went into Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah,
12and Resen between Nineveh and Calah (which is the great city).

16the Jebusite, the Amorite, the Girgashite,
17the Hivite, the Arkite, the Sinite,
18the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite. Afterward the clans of the Canaanites were spread abroad.
19The border of the Canaanites was from Sidon as you go toward Gerar to Gaza; as you go toward Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, to Lasha.
21To Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, to him also were children born.

27Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,
