Shem | Semite
Noah had three sons - Shem, Ham and Japheth. All the earth was populated from the descendants of these three men.
“These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.” Genesis 9:19.
Shem’s name is the origin of the word Semitic; Shem’s great-grandson Eber was the father of those who were eventually called “Hebrews,” including Abraham.
While Shem and his sons are of biblical antiquity, the Semite is of much more recent origin, dating from 18th‑century Europe. Semites was a term for a group of people who speak the Semitic languages.
