Genesis 10:11-12

10:11 From that land he went to Assyria, where he built Nineveh, Rehoboth-Ir, Calah, 10:12 and Resen, which is between Nineveh and the great city Calah.

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.

tn Heb “Asshur.”

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

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

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

tn Heb “and Resen between Nineveh and Calah; it [i.e., Calah] is the great city.”
