Many call someone whom they deem as uncouth or silly a Nimrod, and, therefore, they show a severe lack of knowledge of Scripture. Nimrod was Ham’s (the father of the Black races) grandson, and he was the first ruler of human government, according to the Scripture. The Bible indicates Nimrod was the first king in human history and he ruled mankind from the tower of Babel, after the flood of Noah (Genesis 10:10). The world leaned on his hunting prowess for food after the deluge when animals began migrating back to their natural habitats. Nimrod the Great became a mighty hunter before the Lord.
