Genesis 10:11

Context
10:11 From that land he went 1  to Assyria, 2  where he built Nineveh, 3  Rehoboth-Ir, 4  Calah, 5 

1 tn The subject of the verb translated “went” is probably still Nimrod. However, it has also been interpreted that “Ashur went,” referring to a derivative power.

2 tn Heb “Asshur.”

3 sn Nineveh was an ancient Assyrian city situated on the Tigris River.

4 sn The name Rehoboth-Ir means “and broad streets of a city,” perhaps referring to a suburb of Nineveh.

5 sn Calah (modern Nimrud) was located twenty miles north of Nineveh.
