Nimrod tried to blind Avraham
-Avraham was placed in a dungeon before he was taken out to be burnt.
-Nimrod made sure the dungeon was pitch black, after an extended period of time he took him out into bright sunlight.
-Avraham’s many merits saved him.
-Meaning Nimrod knew that blindness would limit Avraham’s ability to perform a miracle.
