1. Son of Serug, and father of Terah, Ge 11:22-25; Lu 3:34.
2. Son of Terah, and brother of Abraham and Haran. He married Milcah his niece in Ur of the Chaldees, Ge 11:26,29, but seems to have transferred his residence to Haran, Ge 24:10; 27:43. He had twelve sons, and among them Bethuel the father of Rebekah, Ge 22:20-24.
snorting. (1.) The father of Terah, who was the father of Abraham (Ge 11:22-25; Lu 3:34).
(2.) A son of Terah, and elder brother of Abraham (Ge 11:26-27; Jos 24:2, R.V.). He married Milcah, the daughter of his brother Haran, and remained in the land of his nativity on the east of the river Euphrates at Haran (Ge 11:27-32). A correspondence was maintained between the family of Abraham in Canaan and the relatives in the old ancestral home at Haran till the time of Jacob. When Jacob fled from Haran all intercourse between the two branches of the family came to an end (Ge 31:55). His grand-daughter Rebekah became Isaac's wife (Ge 24:67).
1. Father of Terah and grandfather of Abra ham (Ge 11:22-25; 1Ch 1:26; Lu 3:34). 2. Grandson of the preceding and brother of Abraham and Haran (Ge 11:25-27 cf. Jos 24:2). He is said to have married Milcah, daughte of Haran (Ge 11:29), and twelve sohs are enumerated eight by Milcah and four by Re'umah his concubim (Ge 22:20-24). In Ge 24:10 we read of 'the city of Nahor i.e. Haran, where Rehekah was found. Laban, in making a covenant with Jacob, swears by the 'God (of Abraham and the God of Nahor' (Ge 31:53). The sons ascribed to Nahor (Buz, Uz, Aram, etc.) are for the most part names of tribes. It has been questioner if Nahor is a historical character at all. Some think we have, instead, the name of a lost tribe once resident in the neighbourhood of Haran, from which the Aram

1. His grandfather; the son of Serug and father of Terah.
2. Grandson of the preceding son of Terah and brother of Abraham and Haran.
(B.C. 2000.) The order of the ages of the family of Terah is not improbably inverted in the narrative; in which case Nahor instead of being younger than Abraham, was really older. He married Milcah, the daughter of his brother Haran; and when Abraham and Lot migrated to Canaan, Nahor remained behind in the land of his birth, on the eastern side of the Euphrates.
NAHOR, son of Terah, and brother of Abraham, Ge 11:26. Neither the year of his birth nor of his death is exactly known. Nahor married Milcah, the daughter of Haran, by whom he had several sons, namely, Huz, Buz, Kemuel, Chesed, Hazo, Pildash, Jidlaph, and Bethuel. Nahor fixed his habitation at Haran, which is therefore called the city of Nahor, Ge 11:29; 22:20-22; 24:10.
