Genesis 10

Genesis 10: Genealogy

Synopsis

This chapter simply lists Noah’s descendants, and the nations into which they grew.

Thoughts

There’s not much to say about a chapter like this.

Except that one of the people named in this chapter is Nimrod, “who grew to be a mighty warrior on the earth”. (verse 8) I only mention him because, when I was a kid, “nimrod” was a name we used as an insult. “Don’t be such a nimrod”, and that kind of thing. I’m really not sure what the basis is for using his name as an insult, since he’s only ever mentioned favourably in the Bible.
