How do you judge a person?

Dear Maggie!

I judge people by their religious interest.In a scale 1-10 I would put Maggie on 9; since it also asks questions about other areas of interest, I cannot rate it at 10.

Now I will check the functionality of your grey cells:

the farmer often sees it

the king rarely sees it

Jehovah never sees it

who or what is it?

Son of Kush (1Ch 1:10).Rabbinical records derive the name Nimrod from the Hebrew verb mar’dh, which means “rebel”.In this regard, the Babylonian Talmud(Eruvin 53 a) states: “Nimrod is called him because he rebelliously against him [Footy: God” (The Babylonian Talmud, transmitted by Lazarus Goldschmidt, Berlin 1930, Vol. 2, p. 157).

Nimrod was the founder and king of the first empire after the Flood.He was known as a mighty hunter “before” Jehovah (in an unfavorable sense; Hebrew: liphn, “against” or “in resistance against”, Gen 10:9, fn.; cf.4M 16:2; 1Ch 14:8; 2Ch 14:10). Some scholars take up the Hebrew preposition, which means “before”, in a favorable sense in this case, but both from the Jewish Tomummen and from the writings of the historian Josephus and from the context of Genesis, chapter 10, it is clear that Nimrod was a mighty hunter in defiance against Jehovah.

Nimrod’s kingdom initially extended to the cities of Babylon, Erech, Akkad, and Kalne, all of which were in the land of Schinar (Gen 10:10).It can therefore be assumed that the construction of Babel and its tower was begun under his direction. This assumption is also consistent with the traditional view of the Jews. Josephus wrote: “Gradually he [Nimrod’ behavior turned into tyranny, because he thought people would be turned away from God all the more if they stubbornly trusted their own strength. He wanted to take revenge on God, he said, if he would again flood the earth, and he would build a tower so high that the flood of water could not exceed him. Thus he would retaliate for the demise of his ancestors. The crowd readily agreed with Nebrod[Nimrod’s intentions), because she thought it cowardly to obey God. And so they set about the construction of the tower, the . . . rose rapidly” (Jewish Antiquities, translated by H. Clementz, 1st book, chap.4, d. 2, 3, p. 31, 32).

Apparently, after the construction of the Tower of Babel, Nimrod expanded his empire into the territory of Assyria and built “Nineveh . . . and Rehoboth-Ir and Kalach and Resen between Nineveh and Kalach: this is the great city” (Gen 10:11, 12; cf.Wed 5:6). Since the name “Assyria” apparently goes back to the name of Shem’s son Assyria, this would mean that Nimrod, who was a grandson of Ham, invaded Semitic territory. He therefore probably became a violent or hero not only in the sense that he hunted animals, but also by having fought wars of aggression (Gen 10:8). The Cyclop茅dia of M’Clintock and Strong (1894, Vol. VII, p. 109) states: “The fact that the mighty hunting was not limited to the hunting of animals is evidently due to the close connection to the construction of eight cities.. . . What Nimrod did on the hunt was an early sign of his success as a conqueror. Hunting and heroism have always been linked in a special way and naturally . . . The Assyrian monuments represent many heroic deeds in the field of hunting, and the word is often used to indicate participation in a campaign. . . . Hunting and the battle, which were so closely linked in the same country in the following years, can be practically linked or equated here. The significance, then, would be that Nimrod was the first after the flood to create a kingdom and bring together the fragments of patriarchal rule to unite them among themselves as head and master; and all this happened in defiance against Jehovah, for it was the violent intrusion of Hamite power into Semitic territory.”
