We are told that SHEM lived 500 years after the Flood; he would then have lived 150 years with ABRAHAM and almost 50 with ISAAC, and realized for himself the words "In Isaac shall thy seed be called." Why dislocate this juxta-position? and sever the possible connection of the SHEMITE "Sons of God" with the old world and the new? and by an interregnum of a double space of time of which we are not told. The history and works of Nimrod may be only HAMITE fables - the Bible merely represents him as a great conqueror of wild beasts, which may imply a sparse population; and a builder of-probably the nucleus of-four early cities. Besides-all Ninevite records, that as yet have come into our possession, only profess to be copies, at Mr. George Smith's date of 660 B.C., taken from older inscriptions which we have not yet found, and at the time these copies are said to have been made, the Israelites, with some of their Bible Rolls, had been Ninevite captives for sixty years, carried away by Shalmaneser; and it may have pleased the Ninevite Scribes to interpolate and amplify the bare statements of the Book of Genesis. Who shall say that they did not do so, for their own honour and glory?
