Nahor, 1

Na´hor (snorting), or rather Nachor, as in , son of Serug, and father of Terah, the father of Abraham ().

Nahor, 2

Nahor, grandson of the preceding, is one of the sons of Terah, and brother of Abraham. Nahor espoused Milcah his niece, daughter of his eldest brother Haran (). Nahor did not quit his native place, 'Ur of the Chaldees,' when the rest of the family removed to Haran (); but it would appear that he went thither afterwards, as we eventually find his son Bethuel, and his grandson Laban, established there (; ).
