Ever since Iraq invaded Kuwait, people have been asking me
about the biblical implications of the conflict. In order to have
some answers, I did a computer search of references in the Bible to
what is now Iraq.
What follows is some background from my studies and a list of
references. This is not an authoritative dissertation from an
expert historian or a recognized biblical scholar. And I'm not
providing any conclusions. I'm just providing the information. It's
just what I've found out. I've uploaded it in the hopes that it
will satisfy your curiosity or pique your interest.
I'd appreciate hearing any comments you may have.

At different times in biblical history, what is now known as
Iraq was part of the Old Babylonian Empire, the Assyrian Empire,
the Babylonian Empire and the Parthian Empire before becoming part
of the Roman Empire. In Old Testament times, the region was known
as Babylonia. In New Testament times, Iraq was considered part of
The Bible says Babylon (about 55 miles south of present-day
Baghdad) was founded by Nimrod:
GEN 10:8-11 Cush was the father of Nimrod, who grew to be a
mighty warrior on the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the
LORD; that is why it is said, "Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before
the LORD." The first centers of his kingdom were Babylon, Erech,
Akkad and Calneh, in Shinar. From that land he went to Assyria,
where he built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah.
Shortly thereafter the cities began to war. Hammurabi came to
the throne in 1728-1686 B.C. He conquered much of the surrounding
territory and started the first Babylonian Empire. The Assyrians
took over in 729 B.C. Babylon reached its peak in the reign of
Nebuchadnezzar (605-562 B.C.). This Babylon included the Hanging
Gardens, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. This
Babylon also destroyed Jerusalem and took Israel captive, although
a succession of Babylonian rulers completed the captivity. A few
evil, stupid rulers followed Nebuchadnezzar, and the empire fell to
Cyrus of Persia, now Iran, in 539 B.C. Alexander the Great, the
Parthians, the Romans and the Sassanian Dynasty controlled Babylon
until 641 A.D. when Moslem Arabs took over.
Assyria was a mighty empire that dominated the Middle East
from the 9th to the 7th century B.C. The boundary between Assyria
and Babylonia was very unstable. It moved farther into Assyria when
the Babylonians were more powerful. And it moved farther into
Babylonia when the Assyrians were more powerful. It was usually
within what we now call Iraq.
The Assyrians came to dominate the civilized world through an
alliance with the Babylonians. Assyria and Babylonia were always
sort of an Asyro-Babylonia. They were populated by one race of
Semitic people, although Babylonians intermarried with other races
more. They spoke the same language and shared the same polytheistic
Tiglath-Pileser III came to power in 745 B.C. and overran
Israel, starting the first captivity. Later Assyrian and Babylonian
monarchs continued to take the jews captive. Nineveh was one of the
larger cities in Assyria.
The captivity was a punishment from God for disobeying him,
worshipping the gods of the Canaanites and following their
2KI 17:6-30 In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria
captured Samaria and deported the Israelites to Assyria. He settled
them in Halah, in Gozan on the Habor River and in the towns of the
Medes. All this took place because the Israelites had sinned
against the LORD their God, who had brought them up out of Egypt
from under the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt. They worshiped other
gods and followed the practices of the nations the LORD had driven
out before them, as well as the practices that the kings of Israel
had introduced. ... Therefore the LORD rejected all the people of
Israel; he afflicted them and gave them into the hands of
plunderers, until he thrust them from his presence. ... until the
LORD removed them from his presence, as he had warned through all
his servants the prophets. So the people of Israel were taken from
their homeland into exile in Assyria, and they are still there.
Nebuchadnezzar was a king of Babylon when the Assyrian power
was fading. He was a Chaldean. Chaldea also is part of Iraq. By
marrying the daughter of a northern kingdom and through savvy
military campaigns, Nebuchadnezzar cut out a vast empire, the
Neo-Babylonian Empire, by 604 B.C. In 587 B.C., after a siege of a
18 months, Nebuchadnezzar took Jerusalem and took most of its
inhabitants into captivity and back to Babylon.
Nebuchadnezzar was not an Arab and attacked the Arabs (Jer.
49:28-33). Nevertheless, Saddam Hussein has said he is the new
Nebuchadnezzar spent most of his time and effort building
Babylon into the great city and building the hanging gardens, his
temple and ziggurat.
Nebuchadnezzar said: "Is not this the great Babylon I have
built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory
of my majesty?" DAN 4:30
It was an attitude that got him into trouble:
DAN 4:18-37 "This is the dream that I, King Nebuchadnezzar,
had. Now, Belteshazzar, tell me what it means, for none of the wise
men in my kingdom can interpret it for me. But you can, because the
spirit of the holy gods is in you."
Then Daniel (also called Belteshazzar) was greatly perplexed
for a time, and his thoughts terrified him. So the king said,
"Belteshazzar, do not let the dream or its meaning alarm you."
Belteshazzar answered, "My lord, if only the dream applied to
your enemies and its meaning to your adversaries! The tree you saw,
which grew large and strong, with its top touching the sky, visible
to the whole earth, with beautiful leaves and abundant fruit,
providing food for all, giving shelter to the beasts of the field,
and having nesting places in its branches for the birds of the
air-- you, O king, are that tree! You have become great and strong;
your greatness has grown until it reaches the sky, and your
dominion extends to distant parts of the earth.
"You, O king, saw a messenger, a holy one, coming down from
heaven and saying, 'Cut down the tree and destroy it, but leave the
stump, bound with iron and bronze, in the grass of the field, while
its roots remain in the ground. Let him be drenched with the dew of
heaven; let him live like the wild animals, until seven times pass
by for him.'
"This is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree
the Most High has issued against my lord the king: You will be
driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you
will eat grass like cattle and be drenched with the dew of heaven.
Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the
Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to
anyone he wishes. The command to leave the stump of the tree with
its roots means that your kingdom will be restored to you when you
acknowledge that Heaven rules. Therefore, O king, be pleased to
accept my advice: Renounce your sins by doing what is right, and
your wickedness by being kind to the oppressed. It may be that then
your prosperity will continue." All this happened to King
Nebuchadnezzar. Twelve months later, as the king was walking on the
roof of the royal palace of Babylon, he said, "Is not this the
great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty
power and for the glory of my majesty?"
The words were still on his lips when a voice came from
heaven, "This is what is decreed for you, King Nebuchadnezzar: Your
royal authority has been taken from you. You will be driven away
from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass
like cattle. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge
that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives
them to anyone he wishes."
Immediately what had been said about Nebuchadnezzar was
fulfilled. He was driven away from people and ate grass like
cattle. His body was drenched with the dew of heaven until his hair
grew like the feathers of an eagle and his nails like the claws of
At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes
toward heaven, and my sanity was restored. Then I praised the Most
High; I honored and glorified him who lives forever. His dominion
is an eternal dominion; his kingdom endures from generation to
generation. All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing.
He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of
the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: "What have
At the same time that my sanity was restored, my honor and
splendor were returned to me for the glory of my kingdom. My
advisers and nobles sought me out, and I was restored to my throne
and became even greater than before. Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise
and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he
does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in
pride he is able to humble.
A descendant of Nebuchadnezzar, King Belshazzar, received the
same kind of message from the Lord and did not heed it. He died the

a new Nebuchadnezzar. Will he end up as Nebuchadnezzar or
Prophecies on Babylon:
Babylon got its name from the Tower of Babel, which was built
there. The city is used in prophecy to refer to the confusion
resulting from turning away from God, as the builders of the tower
GEN 11:9 That is why it was called Babel--because there the
LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD
scattered them over the face of the whole earth.
I think Babylon represents the plan of man as opposed to the
plan of God. Man's religion as opposed to God's, man's government
as opposed to God's. Whereas God's plan is orderly and peaceful and
perfect, man's is simply screwed up, disorderly, violent and
confused - babel. The best that man could do in challenging God as
in building the Tower of Babel.
In Revelation and other prophecies of Armageddon, Babylon is
referred to as the great city and the great prostitute. REV. 17:5
There also is the ecclesiastical Babylon, the Great
Prostitute. This is apostate Christendom, churches that have led
peoples and rulers away from God and actually persecuted true
Christians - REV. 17-6. Man's religion as opposed to God.
There also is political Babylon. The prostitute rides
political Babylon, a beast, for a while, but the beast kills the
prostitute so that the beast alone is worshipped.
In the Book of Revelation, Babylon rises up and a great group
of nations (the beast) defeats her. Christ and his armies then
defeat the beast in the battle of Armageddon.
Political Babylon is destroyed by Christ at Armageddon:
REV. 16:14-19 They are spirits of demons performing miraculous
signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather
them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty. "Behold, I
come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his
clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully
exposed." Then they gathered the kings together to the place that
in Hebrew is called Armageddon. The seventh angel poured out his
bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the
throne, saying, "It is done!" Then there came flashes of lightning,
rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake
like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so
tremendous was the quake. The great city split into three parts,
and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the
Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his
This complete account of the destruction of Babylon is given
in REV 17:3-19:4.
Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a desert.
There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered
with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. The woman
was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold,
precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand,
filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. This
title was written on her forehead: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE
MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. I saw
that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of
those who bore testimony to Jesus.
When I saw her, I was greatly astonished. Then the angel said to
me: "Why are you astonished? I will explain to you the mystery of
the woman and of the beast she rides, which has the seven heads and
ten horns. The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and will
come up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction. The inhabitants
of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life
from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the
beast, because he once was, now is not, and yet will come.
"This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven
hills on which the woman sits. They are also seven kings. Five have
fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come,
he must remain for a little while. The beast who once was, and now
is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to
"The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received
a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings
along with the beast. They have one purpose and will give their
power and authority to the beast. They will make war against the
Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords
and King of kings--and with him will be his called, chosen and
Then the angel said to me, "The waters you saw, where the
prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages.
The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They
will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh
and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to
accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the beast their power to
rule, until God's words are fulfilled. The woman you saw is the
great city that rules over the kings of the earth."
After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had
great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor.
With a mighty voice he shouted: "Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the
Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil
spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. For all the
nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings
of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the
earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries."
Then I heard another voice from heaven say: "Come out of her, my
people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will
not receive any of her plagues; for her sins are piled up to
heaven, and God has remembered her crimes. Give back to her as she
has given; pay her back double for what she has done. Mix her a
double portion from her own cup. Give her as much torture and grief
as the glory and luxury she gave herself. In her heart she boasts,
'I sit as queen; I am not a widow, and I will never mourn.'
Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning
and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord
God who judges her.
"When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and
shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and
mourn over her. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off
and cry: "'Woe! Woe, O great city, O Babylon, city of power! In one
hour your doom has come!'
"The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because
no one buys their cargoes any more-- cargoes of gold, silver,
precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet
cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made
of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble; cargoes of cinnamon
and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive
oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and
carriages; and bodies and souls of men.
"They will say, 'The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All
your riches and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.' The
merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her
will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and
mourn and cry out: "'Woe! Woe, O great city, dressed in fine linen,
purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and
pearls! In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!'
"Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and
all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off. When
they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, 'Was there
ever a city like this great city?' They will throw dust on their
heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out: "'Woe! Woe, O great
city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her
wealth! In one hour she has been brought to ruin! Rejoice over her,
O heaven! Rejoice, saints and apostles and prophets! God has judged
her for the way she treated you.'"
Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large
millstone and threw it into the sea, and said: "With such violence
the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found
again. The music of harpists and musicians, flute players and
trumpeters, will never be heard in you again. No workman of any
trade will ever be found in you again. The sound of a millstone
will never be heard in you again. The light of a lamp will never
shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be
heard in you again. Your merchants were the world's great men. By
your magic spell all the nations were led astray. In her was found
the blood of prophets and of the saints, and of all who have been
killed on the earth."
After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great
multitude in heaven shouting: "Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and
power belong to our God, for true and just are his judgments. He
has condemned the great prostitute who corrupted the earth by her
adulteries. He has avenged on her the blood of his servants."
And again they shouted: "Hallelujah! The smoke from her goes up
for ever and ever."
The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down
and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne. And they cried:
