Study. The dispersion of the sons of Ham. By Fabian Massa

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

A study by Adrian Pablos & Fabian Massa.

From the Age of Exploration, European scholars have been tempted to associate the lines of descent from Shem , Japheth and Ham with three " racial" groups : Asian ( Mongoloid [1 ] ) , African ( Negroid [2 ] ) and Indo- Europeans ( Caucasoids [3 ] )
This " simplified" approach can lead to generate lines of tortuous thinking : As the findings of the societies of the dominant countries during the era of slavery

Let's see how you get to a false and absurd conclusion, a logical and simplistic reasoning :

If " Cam " means black Africa and populated , then " ALL " Africans have black skin , therefore , "ALL" are descendants of Ham.
Noah prophesied that Ham's descendants would be servants of servants : " Servant of servants " to those companies involved slavery.
Conclusion : All Africans are black and descended from Ham, how it was cursed by Noah to be a slave, then enslave is " biblical and pleasing to the eyes of God."

This terrible handling of the Word , associated with excessive greed and hunger for power , took peoples "Christians" to enslave Africans , with a clear conscience , " Well, it was a divine command "
The only descendant of Ham to which it is related directly to the Negroid branch is Cush ( Kush : Black ) . Africans are descendants of Hamitic families, but Cam is not synonymous with " African " .

 Cush and their descendants

Heb . maybe " black " . Son of Cam and ancestor of five main villages: Seba , Havilah, Sabtah , Raama (who descend Sheba and Dedan ) and Sabteca (Genesis 10:6-8 , 1 Chronicles 1:8 ) , who lived mostly in Nubia, south Egypt ( Current Ethiopia and Sudan) , and southern and western Arabia. (2 Kings 19:9 ; station1 : 1; Ez 29:10 ; etc. . . ) .

Gen. 10
13 Mizraim begat Ludim , Anamim to Lehabim , Naphtuhim ,
14 Pathrusim , Casluhim , where the Philistines , and Caphtorim .

Misraïm Heb . "Egypt " or " red land" . Second son of Ham (Genesis 10:6 , 13) and ancestor of the Egyptians. The Hebrew word probably refers to the two kingdoms of Egypt, the North and South .


Ludites : People connected with Egypt, migrated from North Africa to Asia Minor ( Turkey South Coast on the Mediterranean) and settled there ( Kingdom of Lud ) .


Anamites : People tied to Egypt, possibly located in the Oasis of Kemet ( Tierra Negra , name the Egyptians gave to their country ), south of Cairo.


Pathrusites : People tied to Egypt, I located in the Northern Kingdom ( Patros )

Casluhim : People tied to Egypt, possibly located in the west, on the coast of the Red Sea .


Caphtorites : People connected with Egypt, migrated and settled in the island of Crete ( most likely location ) . It is believed to be the Egyptian name Caphtor Crete.

 Fut Heb . " arc of arrow " . Son of Ham (Genesis 10:6 , 1 Chronicles 1:8 ) and progenitor of a people closely related to Mizraim (Egypt) and Cush ( Ethiopia or Nubia) .
Egyptologists identify Fut ( Put * Jeremiah 46:9 ) with Punt, a country on the African coast of Somalia and Eritrea , where the Egyptians sent expeditions to obtain myrrh trees , leopard skins , ebony, ivory and other exotic products . There is uncertainty regarding the exact identification of Fut .


 Canaan son of Ham (Genesis 9:18-27 ) and patriarch of the Canaanite tribes . Heb . " dealer ", " humble [ killed ] ." In horea kinahhu language the word means " red purple " and this would have been the original meaning of the term. When the Greeks came into contact with the Canaanites by the sea, they found that they called themselves ( "Purple Red ' gr. ) " Phoenicians " .

Gen. 10

15 And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth ,
16 Jebusites , Amorites, Girgashites ,
17 the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites ,
18 to Arvadites, the Zemarites and Hamathites and afterward the families of the Canaanites spread abroad .
19 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon toward Gerar as far as Gaza , and then toward Sodom , Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboyim until Lhasa .
20 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.

The Jebusites continued to live in Jerusalem or elsewhere.



Amorites Heb . " Highlanders " . Semi-nomadic people often mentioned in the early books of the Bible. The history of the Amorites is somewhat obscure , since no historical records were found in their own language , there are only references in Akkadian other neighboring towns.

 Hivites Heb . " rural people [ inside ; villagers ] ."

At the time of the Israelite conquest of Canaan , the Hivites that dwelt Gibeon (Joshua 9:1-7 ) could deceitfully a pact of friendship with the Hebrews. The Hivites also lived at the foot lace Lebanon mountains , especially near Mount Hermon (Joshua 11:3; agreement Judges 3:3 ) , and yet they were found in the region of Phoenicia in the time of David (2 Samuel 24: 7) . Solomon joined the rest of them to forced labor in its extensive building works ( 1 Kings 9:20-22 , 2 Chronicles 8:7 , 8) jobs.
Some scholars identify them with the Horites , as both names writing in postexilic Hebrew is virtually the same . If this is true the Bible is the most complete information .

Gen 14
6 And the Horites in their mount Seir, unto El-paran , which is by the wilderness .
 Dt 2

Indus Valley Culture


The Indus River valley was populated by possibly Hamitic tribes around the c [4 ] . 3300 BC, giving birth to the " Indus Culture [5 ]"

The Indus Valley culture was developed from c . 3300 B.C. to c . 1300 B.C. It covered about a hundred settlements and two major cities : Harappa and Mohenjo - Daro . Together comprised an area of ​​over one million square miles, and went through several periods , reaching its peak between 2600 BC and c . 1900 B.C.
Like the Sumerian and Egyptian civilizations, the culture depended on the river. The Indo annually overflowed , flooding large areas and depositing fertile silt. This immense agricultural potential was the basis on which the planning was developed around its banks . Culture is considered pre-Aryan Indus [6 ] .
This civilization began as a largely agrarian community, made ​​up of small villages , where people lived in mud huts . The main crops were wheat , barley, rice, vegetables , dates and melons . Circa 2400 BCE had developed a complex urban civilization , comparable to that of Sumer and Ancient Egypt. The growth process was the same for all the pre cultures and postdiluvian :

1. A development of agriculture and livestock , resulting in sedentary populations .

Two . The onset of spinning industries such as wool and cotton ( the culture of Mohenjo - Daro is the oldest work in cotton yarn ) . They also had an advanced metallurgy and fine jewelry. The pottery had achieved high development.

Three . All this favored the emergence of trade. Again the uneven distribution of wealth generated difference between social classes .
By 3000 B.C. commercial and cultural exchange seaway with Sumer and Arabia and Persia overland traffic through the mountain passes Northwest began .
Along with trade , came a writing system with characters and signs inscribed on clay stamps or smooth stones , which have not yet been clarified or decrypted by specialists.
Some of these characters share a strong resemblance to those found on Easter Island [7 ] .
No vestiges of religion from the first culture, although it is known that worshiped goddesses mothers with rituals designed to promote fertility . Around 1500 B.C. were invaded by large waves of Indo-European peoples , who imposed their religion, the Vedas , language - Sanskrit - and the caste system .
