VERSE 4. Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.


VERSE 5. The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras.

Japheth. He is the first son of Noah to be listed here. That is the reverse of the order in other passages.

Shem. The descendants of Shem are the Shemites. In English we pronounce the word as “Semites.”

Abraham is descended from the Semitic people.


VERSE 18. Arpachshad became the father of Shelah, and Shelah became the father of Eber.
