Genesis 10 --- Sunday 03APR11

Chapter 10 is mostly begats that don't go anywhere, so I will pretty much gloss over this. It consists of the names of the sons and grandsons and great-grandsons of Noah, each one of whom is the "George Washington" of his own nation, ranging from Ethiopia to Yemen to Russia. Nimrod gets a nod as the founder of Babel. Asshur built Nineveh in Iraq and the cities of Rehoboth and Calah. One gets the impression that Noah's family didn't like each other very much. My objection here is the same with the situation with Cain. Three or four generations out from Noah the Earth might have had enough people to form a clan in a single village. But the Scriptures are talking about these gentlemen building huge cities.
