Nimrod

Genesis 10:8  And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
Genesis 10:9  He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.
1 Chronicles 1:10  And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be mighty upon the earth.
Micah 5:6  And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders.


Nimrod or Nemrut is in the middle on the right of the picture on the left. He was a mighty man and a hunter.







These are what is believed the different names of Nimrod found on the Amos37.com website. Nimrod has been worshipped for many different generations and by different cultures. He was known also as a fish god by the Phillistines. Maybe some would not agree that he was the same as Saturn and Jupiter, but some of his names are sure. When we look at the pictures of Nimrod we can see similarities.
