Bible Commentary for Genesis 10:6

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 10:6


10:5 The posterity of Japheth were allotted to the isles of the Gentiles, which were solemnly, by lot, after a survey, divided among them, and probably this island of ours among the rest. All places beyond the sea, from Judea, are called isles, #Jer 25:22|, and this directs us to understand that promise, #Isa 42:4|, the isles shall wait for his law, of the conversion of the Gentiles to the faith of Christ.

10:8 Began to be mighty on the earth - That is, whereas those that went before him were content to stand upon the same level with their neighbours, Nimrod could not rest in this parity, but he would top his neighbours, and lord over them. The same spirit that the giants before the flood were acted by, #Gen 6:4|, now revived in him; so soon was that tremendous judgment, which the pride and tyranny of those mighty men brought upon the world, forgotten.
