Genesis 10:6-8

Context

10:6 The sons of Ham were Cush, 1  Mizraim, 2  Put, 3  and Canaan. 4  10:7 The sons of Cush were Seba, 5  Havilah, 6  Sabtah, 7  Raamah, 8  and Sabteca. 9  The sons of Raamah were Sheba 10  and Dedan. 11 

10:8 Cush was the father of 12  Nimrod; he began to be a valiant warrior on the earth.

1 sn The descendants of Cush settled in Nubia (Ethiopia).

2 sn The descendants of Mizraim settled in Upper and Lower Egypt.

3 sn The descendants of Put settled in Libya.

4 sn The descendants of Canaan lived in the region of Phoenicia (Palestine).

5 sn The descendants of Seba settled in Upper Egypt along the Nile.

6 sn The Hebrew name Havilah apparently means “stretch of sand” (see HALOT 297 s.v. חֲוִילָה). Havilah’s descendants settled in eastern Arabia.

7 sn The descendants of Sabtah settled near the western shore of the Persian Gulf in ancient Hadhramaut.

8 sn The descendants of Raamah settled in southwest Arabia.

9 sn The descendants of Sabteca settled in Samudake, east toward the Persian Gulf.

10 sn Sheba became the name of a kingdom in southwest Arabia.
