It is the parenthesis that fills verses It comes in the middle of the table of nations and, in a sense, interrupts it. These verses deal, not with the general movements of peoples and nations, but with one particular descendant of Cush, Nimrod, who is said to have been the founder of the first world empire.
Here is the first place in the Bible where the word "kingdom" occurs. This matter was obviously of great importance to Moses, for a related parenthesis occurs in the first nine verses of chapter 11, in the story of the tower of Babel.
What is so significant about Nimrod? The fact that he established cities and built a kingdom is important, of course. But there is much more that can be said. Nimrod was the first person to become a "mighty" man.
Our text calls attention to this by using the adjective "mighty" three times in describing him: The adjective also occurs in a similar way in 1 Chronicles 1: Why is this emphasized?
Is it good or bad?
A little thought will show that it is bad. The empire of Babylon under Nimrod was an affront both to God and man, an affront to God in that it sought to do without God Gen. Martin Luther was on the right track when he suggested that this is the way the word "hunter" should be interpreted.

And so it seemed! God had certainly permitted Nebuchadnezzar to triumph over his own people in punishment for their sins. One evening Nebuchadnezzar had a dream that involved a great image.
It was of gold, silver, brass, and iron. The head was of gold. It was only at the end of this period that the eternal kingdom of God in Christ would come and overthrow all others, grow and fill the earth.
In this vision God was telling Nebuchadnezzar that he was not as important as he thought he was and that it was God Himself who rules history. In the next chapter Nebuchadnezzar sets up a gold statue on the plain of Dura.
On the surface this seems to be only the foolish gesture of a vain monarch who insists that the statue be worshiped as a symbol of the unity of the empire.
God had said, "Your kingdom will be succeeded by other kingdoms, kingdoms of silver, brass and iron.Aristotle: Politics. In his Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle ( B.C.E.) describes the happy life intended for man by nature as one lived in accordance with virtue, and, in his Politics, he describes the role that politics and the political community must play in bringing about the virtuous life in the citizenry.
