Arab tradition confirms Genesis 10:26-29 in making Joktan (Kahtan) the great progenitor of all the pure tribes of central and southern Arabia. Thus Almodad equates to the Arabic Elmudad; Sheleph equates to Es-Sulaf in the Yemen; Hazarmaveth equates to Hadramaut on the S.E. coast of Arabia; Diklah equates to Dakalah, an important city in the Yemen; it means a fruit-abounding palm tree.
