Genesis 10:5

This website has been moved to: https://debatemap.live

Genesis 10:5: From these the coastland peoples of the Gentiles were separated into their lands, everyone according to his language, according to their families, into their nations.
Genesis 10:20: These were the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their languages, in their lands and in their nations.
Genesis 10:31: These were the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their languages, in their lands, according to their nations.

Genesis 11:1: Now the whole earth had one language and one speech.

Genesis 10 says that there were multiple languages before the Tower of Babel, but Genesis 11 says that there was only one language before the Tower of Babel.

The narrative in chapter 10 is separate from the narrative in chapter 11, so the multiple languages mentioned in chapter 10 could have been from after the Tower of Babel.
