The Book of the Generations of Terah

Genesis 11:27, 31 KJV

[27] Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot. [31] And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram’s wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.


After the lineage of the sons of Shem, the book of the generations of Terah was listed. Terah is the father of Abram. The story of their lives is very brief here, but they are expounded upon in other books. Abram had two brothers, Nahor (who it is speculated is the father of the Horites (from NaHorite)).

We at this time can neither confirm nor deny that. Abram’s other brother is Haran (who is the father of Lot, Abram’s nephew). The way the names are listed here, we would think Nahor’s is the eldest. The few verses we have on their lives state Haran passed away before his father, Terah.

Ur, Sumer, Babylon all the Same

He died in the land of his nativity, which is the land of Ur (Sumer), and Mesopotamia, which is the land of the Chaldees (Chaldea). In the Wycliffe Bible, the land of the Chaldeans was later called Babel or Babylon. So this, in a way, supports the idea that after the flood, they all journeyed east and found a plain where they would settle.

And under the wicked leadership of the grandson of Cush, which was Nimrod, the people decided to build the Tower of Babel. Fast-forward to 2022, in Saudi Arabia (not the exact same location), yet they are proposing to build The Line in Neom, Tabuk. The Line is designed to have no cars, streets, or carbon emissions. Terah has a book and it leads us to Abram, who will become Abraham.
