Bible: Genesis 10:8-12

10:8 Cush was the father of 1  Nimrod; he began to be a valiant warrior on the earth. 10:9 He was a mighty hunter 2  before the Lord. 3  (That is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the Lord.”) 10:10 The primary regions 4  of his kingdom were Babel, 5  Erech, 6  Akkad, 7  and Calneh 8  in the land of Shinar. 9  10:11 From that land he went 10  to Assyria, 11  where he built Nineveh, 12  Rehoboth-Ir, 13  Calah, 14  10:12 and Resen, which is between Nineveh and the great city Calah. 15
