Smith's Bible Dictionary
Nahor

(snorting), the name of two persons in the family of Abraham.

  1. His grandfather; the son of Serug and father of Terah. (Genesis 11:22-25) (B.C. 2174.)
  2. Grandson of the preceding son of Terah and brother of Abraham and Haran. (Genesis 11:26,27) (B.C. 2000.) The order of the ages of the family of Terah is not improbably inverted in the narrative; in which case Nahor instead of being younger than Abraham, was really older. He married Milcah, the daughter of his brother Haran; and when Abraham and Lot migrated to Canaan, Nahor remained behind in the land of his birth, on the eastern side of the Euphrates.
ATS Bible Dictionary
Nahor

1. Son of Serug, and father of Terah, Genesis 11:22-25 Luke 3:34.

2. Son of Terah, and brother of Abraham and Haran. He married Milcah his niece in Ur of the Chaldees, Genesis 11:26,29, but seems to have transferred his residence to Haran, Genesis 24:10 27:43. He had twelve sons, and among them Bethuel the father of Rebekah, Genesis 22:20-24.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Snorting.

(1.) The father of Terah, who was the father of Abraham (Genesis 11:22-25; Luke 3:34).

(2.) A son of Terah, and elder brother of Abraham (Genesis 11:26, 27; Joshua 24:2, R.V.). He married Milcah, the daughter of his brother Haran, and remained in the land of his nativity on the east of the river Euphrates at Haran (Genesis 11:27-32). A correspondence was maintained between the family of Abraham in Canaan and the relatives in the old ancestral home at Haran till the time of Jacob. When Jacob fled from Haran all intercourse between the two branches of the family came to an end (Genesis 31:55). His grand-daughter Rebekah became Isaac's wife (24:67).
