Who is Nimrod?
(firm, strong), the son of Cush and grandson of Ham. Gen 10:8. He is described as having been a "mighty hunter before the Lord," and was thus pre-eminent in the chase, a pursuit practised very early in the history of the race. He, however, was also a great conqueror, "a mighty one in the earth," and founded the classical and most ancient kingdom of Babylon, and built the city of that name and others. Gen 10:10. The territory and kingdom of Babylon was long known, after the name of its first hero, as the land of Nimrod Mic 6:6.
