Japheth
Eldest son of Noah (Moses 8: 12; cf. Gen. 5: 32; Gen. 6: 10; Gen. 7: 13; Gen. 9: 18, 23); his blessing (Gen. 9: 27). His descendants were dispersed over the European coasts of the Mediterranean and the districts adjoining the Black and Caspian seas (Gen. 10: 1-5, 21; 1 Chr. 1: 4-5), forming what is now called the Indo-European family of nations.
