ASV notes on Genesis 10:5-14 and questions to consider

שלום חברי

רוח הקודש

Looks to me that every country has its people and language, being build up by families. A nation has its personality characterized by certain people, language and togetherness in groups and the building material that keeps everything solid and in balance is the family. What is a family; child/children and someone looking after them, father and child/children, mother and child/children, but the most common constellation is father and mother looking after, caring for their child or children. Strong families mean strong countries.  

The descendants of Ham one of the sons of Noah; From Mizraim came the Egyptians, from Casluhim the son of Mizraim came the Philistines. And from Cush, one of the sons of Ham came Nimrod, a mighty king that ruled over Assyria and built several cities among them the great city of Nineveh.

Questions to consider

  1. What makes a country strong?
  2. How would you describe a family?
  3. Has a country it’s own personality?
