There is a major falling out of favour with Elohym, after the flood, relating to Nimrod and the Tower of Babel with the consequent geospatial ethnolinguistic dispersion of man:
11 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. 3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. 5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. —Genesis 11:1-9 (KJV)
Piecing biblical and secular accounts together gives the impression of a “changing of the guard — from Cush to Nimrod, Nimrod to Semiramis (and reborn Nimrod)”, …
At Mystery-Babylon.org the story continues:
On their death, Nimrod and his wife Semiramis were confirmed (by their priests) as gods and given homage as Marduk (Enki, Apsu, Astalluhi, Bel, Baal, Nabul, or Nebo) and Astarte. The Greeks later associated Baal with Hercules, under the name Melkarth (a transliteration of Marduk). The original cult of the mother and child (variant of Ashtoreth-Baal), Semiramis and Tammuz, became later still Isis and Osiris (Egypt), Aphrodite and Adonis (Greece), Venus and Cupid (Rome), and the Madonna and child in various cultures. The word Zoroaster, the name of the deity of the far east, means “seed of Ashtoreth” (seed of Ishtar).
In all his guises, Nimrod (Marduk) represents the symbol of the serpent or dragon. The worship of Nimrod and Semiramis is the origin of all the pagan systems on earth. The ultimate source of all this evil is Satan. The diluvium destruction came because of excessive Satanic influence in the affairs of men. Marduk is victorious and is eulogised in the Babylonian creation epic.
The first king (Nimrod), in the first kingdom (Babylon), was the first man to be worshipped (a post-deluge anti-Christ) — as “Baal”. After his death, Nimrod became the risen sun-god who impregnated his wife through the rays of the sun. His wife was said to be of the lineage of Cain. Queen Semiramis gave birth to Tammuz, a man-child who, like his father, also was a great hunter. Tammuz and Semiramis spawned Cupid. As luck would have it the hunter became the hunted, and Tammuz was killed by a wild boar in his 40th year.
The deceased Semiramis (the ancient “queen of heaven”) ascended to heaven prematurely for Nimrod. Her husband despatched her back down to earth, in a giant egg (Babylonian fertility symbol). The egg landed in the Euphrates River, exploding on impact. And from it she emerged. Semiramis then magically turned a bird into an egg-laying rabbit — progenitor of the Easter Bunny.
A sunrise service on the first Sunday of the Vernal (Spring) Equinox became Ishtar’s Sunday. The symbol of Ishtar — that bare-breasted fertility-god of the East or sunrise — became a crescent moon. In the crescent of the moon sat a sun-disc, her deceased husband Baal, the god of the West — the setting sun. These two pagan sun-gods then ruled the whole day, and the entire earth: the Ishtar symbol (sun-disc sitting within a crescent moon) is the origin of the Catholic Eucharist.
The (Hebrew) Bible makes clear and frequent the distinction between these Babylonian gods and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and the worship thereof. The more we look and the more we find this great dichotomy in our world. Every step we take and every move we make will be a step in the direction of one or the other.
Defiance against God is epitomised in Cain, in Nimrod, and in Esau, brother of Jacob.

… and from there to Esau the Edomite whose descendants, according to Jewish tradition, led to the formation of the Roman Empire:
The Spirit of God identifies Edom with Babylon. (See Ps. 137:7 and 8.) “Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom, in the day of Jerusalem, who said Raze it, raze it,” (i.e. make bare or destroy the Temple, as Edom did under the Romans,) “even to the foundation thereof.” “O daughter of Babylon,” &c. Here we see, without any possibility of mistake, that Edom is Babylon , and all sacred and profane history confirms it. Chaldea, or Babylon, was established by Assyria. Isaiah 23:13, says, “Behold the land of the Chaldeans, this people was not till the Assyrian founded it for them. The capital of Chaldea was Babylon. The Assyrian empire embraced the country on both sides of the Tigris. Babel, or Babylon, was founded by Nimrod, (see Gen. x. 10,) about A. M. 3416. The Assyrians descended from Taurus, and Caucasus conquered and destroyed Jerusalem, together with Syria; and these, with Phoenicia, became the Roman Empire, and was called Chaldea; as it was in the time of Jesus under Tiberius Caesar. (See Luke 3:1.) From the East the Chaldeans, or Romans, peopled all the west; first Italy, Rome, France, Germany, England and America. Rome was founded by Romulus, 750 B. C. After Jesus 325, Christianity became the established religion, under Constantine;* hence Babylon, Rome, Edom, and Christianity are synonymous. —Michael Boaz Israel ben Abraham
Between the Caspian and the Black
Transcaucasia (Southern Caucasia) is a densely populated region about the size of Syria situated south of the Caucasus Mountains. It is home to the three independent states of Georgia (north-west), Azerbaijan (east), and situated largely on a high mountainous plateau south of Georgia and west of Azerbaijan is Armenia. It lies between Russia to the north, and both Iran and Turkey to the south, and straddles between the Caspian Sea (east) and the Black Sea (west).
