Bible Commentary for Genesis 10:4

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 10:4


10:2 Moses begins with Japhet's family, either because he was the eldest, or because that lay remotest from Israel, and had least concern with them, at that time when Moses wrote; and therefore he mentions that race very briefly; hastening to give account of the posterity of Ham, who were Israel's enemies, and of Shem, who were Israel's ancestors: for it is the church that the scripture designed to be the history of, and of the nations of the world only as they were some way or other interested in the affairs of Israel.

10:5 The posterity of Japheth were allotted to the isles of the Gentiles, which were solemnly, by lot, after a survey, divided among them, and probably this island of ours among the rest. All places beyond the sea, from Judea, are called isles, #Jer 25:22|, and this directs us to understand that promise, #Isa 42:4|, the isles shall wait for his law, of the conversion of the Gentiles to the faith of Christ.
