:And Y'hovah (3068) Elohim (430) delivered all the enemies of his brethren in his hands, and Elohim (430) prospered him from time to time in his battles, and he reigned upon earth.
:Therefore it became current in those days, when a man ushered forth those that he had trained up for battle, he would say to them, Like Elohim (430) did to Nim'rod (5248), who was a mighty hunter in the earth, and who succeeded in the battles that prevailed against his brethren, that he delivered them from the hands of their enemies, so may Elohim (430) strengthen us and deliver us this day.

:And they found a large valley opposite to the east, and they built him a large and extensive city, and Nim'rod (5248) called the name of the city that he built Shin'ar (8152), for Y'hovah (3068) Elohim (430) had vehemently shaken his enemies and destroyed them.
:And Nim'rod (5248) dwelt in Shin'ar (8152), and he reigned securely, and he fought with his enemies and he subdued them, and he prospered in all his battles, and his kingdom became very great.
:And all nations and tongues heard of his fame, and they gathered themselves to him, and they bowed down to the earth, and they brought him offerings, and he became their lord and one reigning, and they all dwelt with him in the city at Shin'ar (8152), and Nim'rod (5248) reigned in the earth over all the sons of No'ach (5146), and they were all under his power and counsel.
:And all the earth was of one tongue and words of union, but Nim'rod (5248) did not go in the ways of Y'hovah (3068) Elohim (430), and he was more wicked than all the men that were before him, from the days of the flood until those days.
:And he made elohim (430) of wood and stone, and he bowed down to them, and he rebelled against Y'hovah (3068) Elohim (430), and taught all his subjects and the people of the earth his wicked ways; and Mar'don his son was more wicked than his father.
:And every one that heard of the acts of Mar'don the son of Nim'rod (5248) would say, concerning him, From the wicked goeth forth wickedness; therefore it became a proverb in the whole earth, saying, From the wicked goeth forth wickedness, and it was current in the words of men from that time to this.
:And Terach (8646) the son of Nakhor (5152), prince of the host of Nim'rod (5248), was in those days very great in the sight of the one reigning and his subjects, and the one reigning and princes loved him, and they elevated him very high.
:And Terach (8646) took a wife and her name was Amthelo the daughter of Cornebo; and the wife of Terach (8646) conceived and bare him a son in those days.
:Terach (8646) was seventy years old when he begat him, and Terach (8646) called the name of his son that was born to him Av'ram (87), because the one reigning had raised him in those days, and dignified him above all his princes that were with him.
