Postdiluvian Chronology

We have already seen that it was 1656 years from the creation of Adam to the flood. Now in order to find how long it was from the flood To the death of Terah, we must add to the two years from the flood to The birth of Arphaxad, the ages of the patriarchs--Arphaxad, Salah, Eber, Peleg, Reu, Serug, Nahor--at the births of their first sons and To this the years that Terah lived, and we have four hundred Twenty-seven years (Genesis 11:10-32 ).
