Bible: Genesis 11:27-32

The Record of Terah

11:27 This is the account of Terah.

Terah became the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran. And Haran became the father of Lot. 11:28 Haran died in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldeans, 1  while his father Terah was still alive. 2  11:29 And Abram and Nahor took wives for themselves. The name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, 3  and the name of Nahor’s wife was Milcah; 4  she was the daughter of Haran, the father of both Milcah and Iscah. 11:30 But Sarai was barren; she had no children.

11:31 Terah took his son Abram, his grandson Lot (the son of Haran), and his daughter-in-law Sarai, his son Abram’s wife, and with them he set out from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to Canaan. When they came to Haran, they settled there. 11:32 The lifetime 5  of Terah was 205 years, and he 6  died in Haran.
