    Mic 5:6

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:8

    Y Cus engendró a Nimrod. Este comenzó a ser poderoso en la tierra.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 10:8

    Verse 8.
    Nimrod] Of this person little is known, as he is not mentioned except here and and in 1 Chron. i. 10, which is evidently a copy of the text in Genesis. He is called a mighty hunter before the Lord; and from ver. 10, we learn that he founded a kingdom which included the cities BHebel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. Though the words are not definite, it is very likely he was a very bad man. His name Nimrod comes from drm , marad, he rebelled; and the Targum, on 1 Chron. i. 10, says: Nimrod began to be a mighty man in sin, a murderer of innocent men, and a rebel before the Lord. The Jerusalem Targum says: ""He was mighty in hunting (or in prey) and in sin before God, for he was a hunter of the children of men in their languages; and he said unto them, Depart from the religion of Shem, and cleave to the institutes of Nimrod."" The Targum of Jonathan ben Uzziel says: ""From the foundation of the world none was ever found like Nimrod, powerful in hunting, and in rebellions against the Lord."" The Syriac calls him a warlike giant. The word dyx tsayid, which we render hunter, signifies prey; and is applied in the Scriptures to the hunting of men by persecution, oppression, and tyranny. Hence it is likely that Nimrod, having acquired power, used it in tyranny and oppression; and by rapine and violence founded that domination which was the first distinguished by the name of a kingdom on the face of the earth. How many kingdoms have been founded in the same way, in various ages and nations from that time to the present! From the Nimrods of the earth, God deliver the world!

    Mr. Bryant, in his Mythology, considers Nimrod as the principal instrument of the idolatry that afterwards prevailed in the family of Cush, and treats him as an arch rebel and apostate. Mr. Richardson, who was the determined foe of Mr. Bryant's whole system, asks, Dissertation, p. 405, ""Where is the authority for these aspersions? They are nowhere to be discovered in the originals, in the versions, nor in the paraphrases of the sacred writings."" If they are not to be found either in versions or paraphrases of the sacred writings, the above quotations are all false.


    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.
