all the sons of Eber.
22The sons of Shem:
21Sons were also born to Shem, whose older brother was Japheth; Shem was the ancestor of
Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad,
Lud and Aram.
23The sons of Aram:
Uz, Hul, Gether and Meshech.
24Arphaxad was the father of Shelah,
and Shelah the father of Eber.
25Two sons were born to Eber:
One was named Peleg, because
in his time the earth was divided;
his brother was named Joktan.
26Joktan was the father of
Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah,
27Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,
28Obal, Abimael, Sheba,
29Ophir, Havilah and Jobab.
All these were sons of Joktan.
30The region where they lived stretched from Mesha toward Sephar, in the eastern hill country.
31These are the sons of Shem by their clans and languages, in their territories and nations.
From these the nations spread out over the earth after the flood.
32These are the clans of Noah's sons, according to their lines of descent, within their nations.
