Tenth from Noah through Shem; father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran (Gen 11:27). Accompanied Abram from Ur on the way to Canaan (an act of faith on the part of one so very old; persuaded by his godly son), but died at Haran when 205 years old. He was 70 when Haran his oldest son was born, 130 when ABRAM was born (Gen 11:26; Gen 11:32; Gen 12:4; Act 7:2-4).
