Saved

Can you also provide scripture that states that Nimrod was evil and Eber was righteous seed, and that Nimrod was trying to thwart God's plan?

Nimrod & Babel
by: Louis (London)

Nimrod built at least 7/8 cities according to Genesis 10:8-12.

The Tower of Babel was not built by Nimrod, the Bible does not say so: but by all mankind who lived in the plains of Shinar, Gen 11: 2-8. That is where the Tower was built.

The place was NOT called Babel in the beginning. The name Babel came after the destruction of the Tower by God and the scattering of the peoples and NOT before. Before then, the place was merely mentioned as a place in the plains of Shinar since all men spoke the same language and lived together.

The implication is that Nimrod began his Kingdom of BABEL after the Tower was destroyed and not before, according to Gen 11:9.

Building a Tower is NOT an equivalence of building a Kingdom. These are two different things. Nimrod built a Kingdom in Babel and NOT a Tower.

All Kingdoms do not contain a Tower into the Heavens. No kingdom existed before the Tower was built. So, Nimrod could not have built the Tower as part of his Kingdom. That one of the places where Nimrod began his Kingdom was Babel does not mean he built the Tower. That particular place, Babel, became Babylon built by King Nebuchadnezzar.

Genesis 9:10 merely said: " And the beginning of his Kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh in the land of Shinar."

Nimrod's Rebellion
by: Rick

We discover Nimrod in (Genesis 10:9-10) built the city of Babel. Mankind was of one speech and rebelled against God by building the Tower of Babel; and they mocked God so God confused mankind's language and scattered mankind across the earth. (Genesis 11:1-9)

Nimrod was in charge in building the city of Babel and the Tower, so Nimrod was responsible for the rebellion against God.

Nimrod and Eber
by: REX

Nimrod was a mighty hunter before the Lord. Nimrod started a kingdom at Babel. (Genesis 10:9-10)

The Lord called Nimrod's city Babel and confused the language of all the earth. Babel is where mankind scattered across the earth. (Genesis 11:8-9)

Eber had a son named Peleg born in the year mankind spread across the earth to form nations. Eber built the city of Ebla, Syria. (Genesis 11:16-17)

Sargon/Nimrod king of the Genesis 10:10 city of Accad/Akkad/Agade received tribute from Ebla.
Egyptian king Khafre had trade with Ebla and Sargon's grandson Naramsin destroyed Ebla.

Egyptian king Pepi I and Lagash governor Gudea develops trade with the rebuilt city of Ebla.

Nimrod's city of Babel did not prosper like Eber's city of Ebla. From Eber's descendents Abraham was born.
