Summary:  An ancient city established between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, Shinar became a part of the Sumerian Empire after it was conquered by Yasher-Baal (c. 8,820 BCE), the son of Cain (B:11:34-35). Yasher-Baal appointed one of his sons, Remlah, as king of Shinar, but Remlah’s appointment was short lived as he was defeated in battle and killed by the freedom fighter, Elon-Zanoah (B:15:28-32). Yasher-Baal appointed his son Adrammelech to replace Remlah as king of Shinar (B:15:49).

 

Phiniah, the uncle of Noah, lived in the land of Shinar (c. 5,000 BCE). It was there that Noah met Phiniah’s daughter, Suzanne. The two were married soon after (B:20:27-44).

 

The man Abram (later named Abraham) and his wife Sarah were originally from the city of Babel, located in the land of Shinar (B:24:21). During that time (c. 1,800 BCE), the land of Shinar was ruled over by king Nimrod (B:25:1-5).
