He was a mighty hunter before the  Lord; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the  Lord.” 10 The beginning of his kingdom was

11 From that land he went forth v into Assyria, and built Nineveh and Rehoboth-Ir and Calah, 12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah; that is the great city. 13 Mizraim

Lit was
extended from Sidon as you go toward Gerar, as far as Gaza; as you go toward af Sodom and Gomorrah and Admah and Zeboiim, as far as Lasha.
20 These are the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their languages, by their lands, by their nations.
