A new world began after the Great Flood. All of humanity would spread out from Ararat -- after a self imposed bottleneck at Babel -- into all the world. The descendants of Shem, though, was somewhat less scattered. The LORD would chose to use this branch of Noah's family to bring the promised "seed of the woman" into the world[1].
