Nahor, Nachor,[1] or Naghor (Heb. נָחֹור Nāḥōr) is the son of Serug according to the Hebrew Bible. In Genesis Chapter 11, Nahor is listed as the son of Serug.[v.22] According to some interpretations, he was born and raised in the Sumerian city-state of Ur on the Euphrates River of lower Mesopotamia, about four Millennia ago.[2] He is said to have lived to the age of 148[3] years old [v.24,25] and had a son, Terah at the age of 29.[4][v.24] He was also the grandfather of Abraham, Nahor II and Haran, all descendants of Shem.[v.10,25-27][5]
