He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore it is said, "Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the LORD." The beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, and Accad, all of them in the land of Shinar.From that land he went into Assyria, and built Nineveh, Rehobothir, Calah, and Resen between Nineveh and Calah; that is the great city.This list includes any Hebrew name that is known to be used as a personal name in any cultural or religious tradition.This includes but is not limited to all existing traditions used by Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Principal Genealogies and Lists: In the early genealogies the particular strata to which each has been assigned by reconstructive critics is here indicated by J, the Priestly Code (P), etc. Joktan (son of Eber) = Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah, Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, Obal, Abimael, Sheba, Ophir, Havilah, Jobab. Peleg (son of Eber) = Reu = Serug = Nahor = Terah = Abraham. This gives David 6 sons in Hebron, and, if both Nogah and Elpalet be correct, 12 in Jerusalem. The signs "=" or ":" following individual names indicate sonship. Seven generations to Jabal, Jubal and Tubal-cain, explaining the hereditary origin of certain occupations (supposed by many to be a shorter version of chapter 5). (3) Genesis 5:1-32.--The Book of the Generations of Adam (Assigned to the Priestly Code (P), Except J). Nearly all these names are of peoples, cities or districts. Eliada is Beeliada in 14:7, perhaps the original form, a relic of the time before the Hebrews turned against the use of Baal, "lord," as applied to Yahweh; in which case Baaliada, "Lord knows," was changed to Eliada, "God knows." 3:6 reads Elishama for Elishua. Three other Shammahs, one of them a knight of David.

(4) Genesis 10:1-32.--The Generations of the Sons of Noah. Japheth = Gomer, Magog, Badai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, Tiras. Gomer = Ashkenaz, Riphath (1 Chronicles 1:6, Diphath), Togarmah. Javan = Elisha, Tarshish, Kittim, Dodanim (Rodanim, 1 Chronicles 17, is probably correct, a "d", having been substituted by a copyist for "r"). Nevertheless the Scripture statement is accordant with early traditions of a Hamitic settlement of the country (Oannes the fish-god coming out of the Red Sea, etc.), and perhaps also with the fact that the earliest language of Babylonia was non-Sem.

Some scholars hold this list to be framed upon that of the ten Babylonian kings given in Berosus, ending with Xisuthrus, the Babylonian Noah. This table represents the nations known to the writer, and in general, although not in all particulars, expresses the ethnographical relationships as far as they are now known to modern research. In Chronicles he is a Hachmonite, probably correct. Dodo in Chronicles; 8 other Eleazars in the Old Testament.

An original primitive tradition, from which both lists are derived, the Hebrew being the nearer, is not impossible. Cush = Seba, Havilah, Sibtah, Raamah, Sabteca (Nimrod). Mizraim = Ludim, Anamim, Lehabim, Naphtuhim, Pathrusim, Casluhim (whence the Philis), Caphtorim. Canaan = Zidon (Chronicles, Sidon), Heth; the Jebusite, Amorite, Girgashite, Hivite, Arkite, Sinite, Arvadite, Zemarite, Hittite. It follows a partly ethnological, partly geographical scheme, the descendants of Japheth in general representing the Aryan stock settled in Asia Minor, Media, Armenia, Greece, and the islands of the Mediterranean; those of Ham representing the Hamitic races in Ethiopia, Egypt, in Southwest Arabia, and Southern Babylonia. "Adino the Heznite" is probably a corruption for "He wielded his spear" (Chronicles).

Likewise, Tiberian Hebrew is important because it is one of the oldest attestable forms of the language that specifies specific vowels.
