10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

11 Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah,

12 And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same in a great city. 13 And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim, 14 And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,) and Caphto

15 And Canaan begat † Sidon his firstborn, and Hoth,

16 And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite,

17 And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,

18 And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.

20 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations. 21 Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.

22 The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and † Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.

23 And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.

24 And Arphaxad begat 'Salah; and Salah begat Eber.

25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.

26 And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,

27 And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah, 28 And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba, 29 And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan.

30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar a mount of the cast.

31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.

32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations and 7 by these were the nations divided 7 in the earth after the flood.

the LORD; and took of every clean beast,
and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt
offerings on the altar.

21 And the LORD smelled a sweet sa-
vour; and the LORD said in his heart.
I will not again curse the ground any
more for man's sake; for the "imagina-
tion of man's heart is evil from his youth;
neither will I again smite any more
every thing living, as I have done.

16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

23 And Shem and Japheth took a gar-
ment, and laid it upon both their
shoulders, and went backward, and co-
vered the nakedness of their father; and
their faces were backward, and they saw
not their father's nakedness,
ND blessed Noah and his sons,
24 And
awoke from his wine,
Android to them, Be fruitful, knew what his younger son had done
and multiply, and replenish the earth.
2And the fear of you and the dread
of you shall be upon every beast of the
earth, and upon every fowl of the air,
upon all that moveth upon the earth, and
upon all the fishes of the sea; into your
hand are they delivered.

3 Every moving thing that liveth shall
be meat for you; even as the d
green
herb have I given you all things.
4 But flesh with the life thereof, which
is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
5 And surely your blood of your lives
will I require; at the hand of every beast
will I require it, and at the hand of
man; at the hand of every man's bro-
ther will I require the life of man.

6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by
man shall his blood be shed: for in
the image of God made he man.

7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multi-
ply; bring forth abundantly in the earth,
and multiply therein.

8 And God spake unto Noah, and to
his sons with him, saying,

9 And I, behold, I establish my
venant with you, and with your seed
after you;

10 P And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.

11 And I will establish my covenant
with you; neither shall all flesh be cut
off any more by the waters of a flood;
neither shall there any more be a flood
to destroy the earth.

12 And God said, This is the token of
the covenant which I make between me
and you and every living creature that
is with you, for perpetual generations:
13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and
it shall be for a token of a covenant be-
tween me and the earth.

18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of † Canaan.

19 These are the three sons of Noah: and 7 of them was the whole earth overspread 7.

20 And Noah 8 began to be "an husband-
man, and he planted a vineyard:
21 And he drank of the wine, and was
drunken; and he was uncovered within
his tent."

22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw
the nakedness of his father, and told his
two brethren without.

25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.

27 1 God shall 11 enlarge Japheth, and
12 he shall 12 dwell in the tents of Shem;
and 10 Canaan shall be 10 his servant.

5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

6 And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.

7 And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, " Unto thy seed will I give this land and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

8 And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Beth-el, and pitched his tent, having Beth-el on the west, and Hai on the east and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and P called upon the name of the LORD. 9 And Abram journeyed, † going on still toward the 5 south.

10 And there was a famine in the land: and Abram 'went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was 'grievous in the land.

11 And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon:

12 Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive. 13 Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.

Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.

15 The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.

17 And the king of Sodom "went out a Judg. 11. to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale. 18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God. 19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth: 20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes *of all. 21 And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself. 22 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth,

him, and smote the Rephaims in Ash-

the country of the Amalekites, and also
the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazezon-

tamar.

8 And there went out the king of So-
dom, and the king of Gomorrah, and
the king of Admah, and the king of
Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same
is Zoar;) and they joined battle with
them in the vale of Siadim;

and with Tidal king of nations, and Am-
raphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king
of Ellasar; four kings with five.

they that remained fled to the mountain.

12 And they took Lot, Abram's bro-

his goods, and departed.
18 And there came one that had es-
caped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for
he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the
Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother
of Aner : and these were confederate
with Abram.
