SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:11 De esta tierra salió Assur, el cual edificó a Nínive, y a Rehobot, y a Cala,
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 10:11 Verse 11. Out of that land went forth Asshur] The marginal reading is to be preferred here. He - Nimrod, went out into Assyria and built Nineveh; and hence Assyria is called the land of Nimrod, Micah v. 6. Thus did this mighty hunter extend his dominions in every possible way. The city of Nineveh, the capital of Assyria, is supposed to have had its name from Ninus, the son of Nimrod; but probably Ninus and Nimrod are the same person. This city, which made so conspicuous a figure in the history of the world, is now called Mossul; it is an inconsiderable place, built out of the ruins of the ancient Nineveh.
Rehoboth, and Calah, &c.] Nothing certain is known concerning the situation of these places; conjecture is endless, and it has been amply indulged by learned men in seeking for Rehoboth in the Birtha of Ptolemy, Calah in Calachine, Resen in Larissa, &c., &c.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 8-14 - Nimrod was a great man in his day; he began to be mighty in the earth Those before him were content to be upon the same level with their neighbours, and though every man bare rule in his own house, yet no ma pretended any further. Nimrod was resolved to lord it over his neighbours. The spirit of the giants before the flood, who becam mighty men, and men of renown, Ge 6:4, revived in him. Nimrod was great hunter. Hunting then was the method of preventing the hurtfu increase of wild beasts. This required great courage and address, an thus gave an opportunity for Nimrod to command others, and graduall attached a number of men to one leader. From such a beginning, it is likely, that Nimrod began to rule, and to force others to submit. He invaded his neighbours' rights and properties, and persecuted innocen men; endeavouring to make all his own by force and violence. He carrie on his oppressions and violence in defiance of God himself. Nimrod wa a great ruler. Some way or other, by arts or arms, he got into power and so founded a monarchy, which was the terror of the mighty, and bi fair to rule all the world. Nimrod was a great builder. Observe in Nimrod the nature of ambition. It is boundless; much would have more and still cries, Give, give. It is restless; Nimrod, when he had fou cities under his command, could not be content till he had four more It is expensive; Nimrod will rather be at the charge of rearing cities than not have the honour of ruling them. It is daring, and will stic at nothing. Nimrod's name signifies rebellion; tyrants to men ar rebels to God. The days are coming, when conquerors will no longer be spoken of with praise, as in man's partial histories, but be brande with infamy, as in the impartial records of the Bible.
