Recall that there are 10 major sections in the book of Genesis; each is introduced with the phrase “this is the genealogy of…” After the death of Noah in 9:29, we have a new section in 10:1 which is traditionally called “The Table of Nations.” It shows us the origin of different national entities after the flood. You may have a question regarding the order of chapters 10 and 11, because 10:5, 20, 31 mention “languages” or “tongues,” but chapter 11 describes the origin of different languages at the Tower of Babel. Is there a mistake here? Not at all. Chapter 11 explains the origin of the different nations listed in chapter 10. Chapter 10 is a summary, and chapter 11 offers further explanation. God has not left us clueless about how we got here. Some of the most “boring” passages of Scripture are significant when it comes to questions that people might ask. “Where do I come from?” “Where do we come from?” “Where did the Jews come from?” “How old is the earth?”.

Our Scripture reading was found in Proverbs 30:1-33.
