According to Genesis 11, Adonai dispersed them around the earth. From the clues given in Deuteronomy 32:8, they were separated according to the ‘sons of God.’ Although the Hebrew Masoretic text says ‘sons of Israel’ or bene Yisra’el, there was no Israel at this time. The Septuagint and the Qumran Dead Sea Scroll’s text says ‘sons of God’ or bene elohim. This implies that Adonai divided the nations based on the number of his sons gathered in his divine council.
After the flood, Noach is given meat to eat along with green plants. In the sacrificial system of the Tabernacle, the fellowship or peace offerings were eaten by the priests or with the individual making the offering. This is not only prophetic to Elohim’s outline for worship in the Tabernacle, but He is showing Noach the required animal offerings. At the same time, Elohim reveals to Noach the difference between the animals he may eat and the animals he may not. This is the second time Elohim gives a dietary command, and this event occurs one thousand years before the Israelites received the Torah at Mount Sinai.
