Genesis 10:6-20 – The Descendants of Ham

 6And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.

 7And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtechah: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.

 8And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.

 9He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.

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

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

 12And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.

 13And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,

 14And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,) and Caphtorim.

 15And Canaan begat Sidon his first born, and Heth,

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

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

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

 19And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest, unto Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, even unto Lasha.

 20These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.

Now we get a glimpse of the sons of Japheth and we watch as his descendants spread from Africa to possibly China. We also see the birth of a picture of the coming Anti – Christ and a perverse and horrible people.

The Hamitic people have contributed 2 things to the world:

1) They are responsible for man’s well-being

2) They are responsible for the technical proficiency of mankind

Arthur C. Custance states that all the earliest civilizations of note were founded and carried to the highest technical proficiency by the Hamitic peoples.

 

1 Chronicles 1

 8The sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, Put, and Canaan.

 9And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabta, and Raamah, and Sabtecha. And the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.

 10And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be mighty upon the earth.

 11And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,

 12And Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (of whom came the Philistines,) and Caphthorim.

 13And Canaan begat Zidon his firstborn, and Heth,

 14The Jebusite also, and the Amorite, and the Girgashite,

 15And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,

 16And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite.

 

Cush – This is modern day Ethiopia

Mizraim – Egypt

Phut – This is Africa or Lybia

Canaan – A perverse and wicked people, who received the curse of Noah. His people would become servants and they would occupy what would one day become the land of Israel. God gave them 4 centuries to repent from their horrible and perverse ways but they did not and were destroyed.

Genesis 15

13And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;

 14And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.

 15And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age.

 16But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.

Sheba and Dedan – Saudi Arabia

Sidon – Phoenicia

Heth – Hittites

Jebus – The Jebusites occupied Jerusalem before David’s reign

Philistim – The Philistines

Sin – The possible founder of the Oriental race – China, Japan, India, etc
