Nahor [EBD]

snorting. (1.) The father of Terah, who was the father of Abraham (Gen. 11:22-25; Luke 3:34).

(2.) A son of Terah, and elder brother of Abraham (Gen. 11:26, 27; Josh. 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 (Gen. 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 (Gen. 31:55). His grand-daughter Rebekah became Isaac's wife (24:67).

Nahor [NAVE]

1. Grandfather of Abraham, Gen. 11:22-26; 1 Chr. 1:26.
In the lineage of Christ, Luke 3:34.
2. Brother of Abraham, Gen. 11:26; Josh. 24:2.
Marriage and descendants of, Gen. 11:27, 29; 22:20-24; 24:15, 24.


(snorting), the name of two persons in the family of Abraham.
  1. His grandfather; the son of Serug and father of Terah. (Genesis 11:22-25) (B.C. 2174.)
  2. Grandson of the preceding son of Terah and brother of Abraham and Haran. (Genesis 11:26,27) (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 - na'-hor (nachor; in the New Testament Nachor):e representative of Naphtali among the 12 spies (Nu 13:14).

(1) Son of Serug and grandfather of Abraham (Gen 11:22-25; 1 Ch 1:26).

(2) Son of Terah and brother of Abraham (Gen 11:26,27,29; 22:20,23; 24:15,24,47; 29:5; Josh 24:2).

A city of Nahor is mentioned in Gen 24:10; the God of Nahor in Gen 31:53. In the King James Version Josh 24:2; Lk 3:34, the name is spelled "Nachor."
