History: The Generations of Noah: From Ham to Sodom

Shalom everyone! The following is a diagram of the generations of Noah (Noach), from his son Ham to his third great grandson Sodom, based upon the accounts of the Book of Genesis (Bereshith) in the Tanakh, the Book of Jasher, and the Book of Jubilees. From the account of the Book of Jasher, we know that men from the Hamitic line, Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboyim moved to the plains of the Land of Canaan and built cities named after themselves. The men were most likely descendants of the Hivites through Hur/Horites as they lived in the same territory.

Ham was the third and youngest son of Noah though he is mentioned second in the Book of Genesis. The descendants of Ham are also known as “Hamites,” “Chamites” or “Hamitic” in the English language. Like his older brother Shem, Ham is the progenitor of Afro-Asiatic peoples including the Akkadians (Cush), the Egyptians (Mizraim), Libyans (Phut) and a number of other African and Asian peoples (Canaan). The Hamites migrated from Mesopotamia throughout the region known today as the “Middle East” (Northeast Africa including the Levant, southern Iran, and the Arabian Peninsula), North Africa, East AfricaSouth Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia and OceaniaHamites frequently intermarried with Shemites as they were always in close proximity to each other:
