Genesis 9:17-10:12

And this is the history of Noah’s sons Shem, Ham and Japeth. (And establishment or 3 lineages under him)

From these the population of the isles of the nations was spread about in their lands, each according to its tongue, according to their families, by their nations.

According to their tongues what does that mean???

In old English it mean according to their language. So in just the 10th passage in grave importance the different nations and languages that were established in just one family is mentioned. Yet we fight over differences.

So Ham’s son Cush … It is his brother that is cursed by Noah lets keep in mind

Ham has three sons Cush Mizraim and Put and Ca’naan

It is here it seems that Cush fathers Nimrod

He makes a start in becoming the mighty one in the earth.

“He displayed himself a mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah. He displayed himself a mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah.”

So he calls himself the mighty one against God and establishes a Kingdom against GOD as follows…

And the beginning of his kingdom came to be Babel and Erech and Accad and Calneh in the land of Shinar. Out of the land of Shinar. Out of that land he went forth into Assyria and set himself to building Ninevah and Rehoboth Ir and Ca’lah and Re’sen between Ninevah and Ca’lah this is the great city

“And Mizraim became father to Ludim and Anamim and Lehabim and Naphtuhim and Pathrusim and Casluhim (from among whom the Philistines went forth) and Caphtorim.”

Philistines

the Bible is a complicated study that needs to be studied and much can be missed. Not an easy feat. That will also requiring going back to passages to go deeper and deeper. Just like the ocean not all can be taken in at one glance.

What is the point of the naming of these lineages that are coming to grow like trees.

In this passage a family the one that was cursed by God’s favorite dares to set himself up against God. A recipe for disaster would’nt you say?

Which seems to be the establishment as these families grow after the great flood that destroyed all.

The families of the Ca’naan were scattered. Ca’naanite boundaries Sidon, Ge’rar near Gaza as far as Ad’mah, Zeboi’im near Lasha.

These are families and their genealogies, who went where and who became who. All from the family of Noah that went into the world and became their own people that had different beliefs and ways of life and even languages. The different genealogies that were set forth. They were certainly not the same which is said again and again in this passage.

When the division of the earth that is mentioned here in this passage. Could this refer to Nimrod as he bestows himself up against Jehovah…(God) (Through the centuries we have used many names for God)

The people of earth choosing sides. Jehovah God or the mighty hunter Nimrod. He establishes his Kingdoms in opposition force solidifying his cause and motives.

“He displayed himself a mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah. That is why there is a saying: “Just like Nimrod a mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah.” “
