Human Race is Nation Too Latin Word Natio Like Natal by Birth Table of Nations After the Flood Shows Subdivisions


Genesis 10, the Table of Nations, lists the progeny of Noah’s sons Shem, Japheth, and Ham, nations named for men such as Thrace for Japheth’s son Tiras and Assyria for Shem’s son Asshur, yet the word nation is from the Latin natio for birth, by birth as it were, so Adam and Eve began the human nation, also know as the human race from the Arabic word ras meaning fountainhead.
