Genesis 10:24

Context
10:24 Arphaxad was the father of 1  Shelah, 2  and Shelah was the father of Eber. 3 

1 tn Heb “fathered.”

2 tc The MT reads “Arphaxad fathered Shelah”; the LXX reads “Arphaxad fathered Cainan, and Cainan fathered Sala [= Shelah].” The LXX reading also appears to lie behind Luke 3:35-36.

3 sn Genesis 11 traces the line of Shem through Eber (עֵבֶר, ’ever ) to Abraham the “Hebrew” (עִבְרִי, ’ivri).
