Mighty Hunters

“He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.” Genesis 10:9

The word hunter is from tsayid which is more often translated ‘provision, food, food-supply, or victuals’. This verse would be better translated to the effect that Nimrod was a mighty provider instead of the LORD.

This concept of men snaring the people into bondage by the offer of benefits would be in line with numerous biblical warnings about returning to Egypt;139 the commandments against making covenants with inhabitants and their gods, against coveting your neighbors’ goods;140 the proverbs about eating with rulers and not consenting for gain;141 and testimony of David and Paul about tables that should have been for our welfare becoming a snare;142 to say nothing of Jesus’ prohibitions about praying to the fathers of the earth, swearing or taking any oaths, or being like the rulers of the gentiles who exercise authority, who offer benefits at your neighbor’s expense, or promise liberty but delivering them into bondage.143

The Gospel of the Kingdom is for those living, willing to repent and seek the righteousness of God by setting their neighbor free from their own avarice and covetous hearts.

That Kingdom is at hand. We should not be like the governments of the gentiles. Seeking His righteousness is a way that may save His people in this life and the next.

“For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and of God.” (Eph 5:5 )
