Genesis 10:6-20

6 And the sons of Ham: Kush and Misraim and Put and Kenaan. 7 And the sons of Kush: Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabtechah. And the sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan. 8 And Kush births Nimrod: he begins to be mighty in the earth. 9 He is a mighty hunter at the face of Yah Veh: thus it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter at the face of Yah Veh. 10 And the beginning of his sovereigndom is Babel and Erech and Akkad and Kalneh in the land of Shinar. 11 From that land Ashshur goes and builds Nineveh and the city Rechovoth and Kelach; 12 And Resen between Nineveh and Kelach - a great city. 13 And Misraim births Ludiym and Anamim and Lehabim and Naphtuchim 14 and Pathrsimm and Kasluhim - from whom came Peleshethiym and Kaphtorim. 15 And Kenaan births Sidon his firstborn firstbirthed and Heth, 16 and the Yebusiy and the Emoriy and the Girgashiy 17 and the Hivviy and the Arqiy and the Siniy 18 and the Arvadiy and the Semariy and the Hamathiy: and afterward the families of the Kenaaniy scatter. 19 And the border of the Kenaaniy is from Sidon, as you come to Gerar, to Azzah; as you go to Sedom and Amorah and Admah and Seboim, to Lesha. 20 These are the sons of Ham, by their families, by their tongues, in their lands, in their goyim.

Isaiah 18:1-7

Ho to the land whirring with wings beyond the rivers of Kush: 2 that sends ambassadors by the sea even in instruments of bulrushes on the face of the waters. Go, you swift angels, to a goyim drawn and polished; to a people awesome from their beginning and onward; a goyim lined up and trampled whose land the rivers split. 3 All you settlers of the world, and tabernaclers on the earth, as an ensign lifting on the mountains, you see; and as a shophar blasting, you hear. 4 For thus Yah Veh says to me, I rest, and in my dwelling place I scan as a clear heat upon the light - as a thick cloud of dew in the heat of harvest. 5 For, ere the face of the harvest, when the blossom consummates, and the sour grape ripens in the blossom, he both cuts off the sprigs with psalmpicks, and turns aside and lops off the tendrils 6 - to abandon together to the swoopers of the mountains and to the animals of the earth: and the swoopers summer on them, and all the animals of the earth winter on them. 7 In that time, they bring a present to Yah Veh Sabaoth from a people drawn and polished - an awesome people from their beginning and onward - a goyim lined up and trampled - whose land the rivers split to the place of the name of Yah Veh Sabaoth, the mount Siyon.

And the Aramiym from Qir? 8 Behold, the eyes of Adonay Yah Veh on the sinful sovereigndom; and I desolate it from off the face of the soil: finally, in desolating, I desolate not the house of Yaaqov - an oracle of Yah Veh.

Nahum 3:6-10

6 and I cast abominations on you and wither you and set you as a spectacle. 7 And so be it, all who see you, flee from you; and say, Nineveh is ravaged: Who wags over her? Where seek I sighers for you? 8 Well-please you more than No Ammon who settles among the rivers surrounded by waters? Whose trench is the sea? And the sea her wall? 9 Kush and Misrayim her might and without end; and Put and Lubiym your helpers. 10 Yet was she is exiled; she goes into captivity: even her sucklings splatter at the top of all the outways: and they handle pebbles for her honorable men and chain all her great in chains.

Zephaniah 3:9-13

9 For then I restore a purified lip to the people so that they all call on the name of Yah Veh to serve him with one shoulder. 10 From beyond the rivers of Kush my entreaters, the daughter of my scattered, bring my offering. 11 In that day you shame not for all the exploits you rebel against me: for then I turn aside from among you all who jump for joy in your pomp; and you add not to lift yourself because of my holy mountain. 12
And I leave midst you a humbled and poor people; and they seek refuge in the name of Yah Veh: 13 the survivors of Yisra El neither work wickedness nor word lies; nor is a deceitful tongue found in their mouth: for they graze and crouch and no one trembles.
