1 Chronicles 1-2
Chapter 1: Genealogy of Adam
The first chapter of 1st Chronicles tells us a few things. First we already know that Adam and Eve had three sons by name (Genesis 4:1-2,4:25) and many other unnamed sons and daughters (Genesis 5:4). Yet in the first opening verses we read nothing about Cain and Abel, but only of Seth. So we know that there is a more specific reason for this set of Genealogy, leaving out Cain and Abel.
While there is much we don’t know and there is a LOT MORE that I don’t know I have included what I do know, with the actual verses from 1 Chronicles chapter one for your own reading and studying.
Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth were the survivors of the flood and the sons of Noah became the basis for the family in the post-flood world.
The sons of Japheth are commonly known/supposed to have been the ones who founded the people of Europe, and northern Asia.
