The story of Abram and Nimrod is the age-old story of those who choose to live righteously by following Yehovah’s eternal and unchanging ways versus those who have chosen to rebel against them as did Nimrod and all his people.
Unknown to Abram this ongoing battle between good and evil started on the night of his birth. Jasher records how Terah, Abram’s father and one of the princes of Nimrod, was having a gathering in his home on the night of Abram’s birth. In attendance were “all the wise men of Nimrod (the king of Babylon) and his conjurors.”
Jasher 8:1 And it was in the night that Abram was born, that all the servants of Terah, and all the wise men of Nimrod, and his conjurors came and ate and drank in the house of Terah, and they rejoiced with him on that night.

We were all created to learn and do only our Father’s ways, but Nimrod made himself a mighty one and set his ways above Yehovah’s.
Jasher 8:47 And he made gods of wood and stone, and he bowed down to them, and he rebelled against Yehovah, and taught all his subjects and the people of the earth his wicked ways.
Nimrod Is The King Of Babylon
Jasher 27:2 And Nimrod king of Babel, the same was Amraphel, also frequently went with his mighty men to hunt in the field, and to walk about with his men in the cool of the day.
Ham and His seed (including Nimrod) were told to serve Japheth’s and Shem’s seed. Continue reading Nimrod, King Of Babylon
