And Serug lived, after he begat Nahor, two hundred years,
&c.] The years of his life were two hundred and thirty:

and he begat sons and daughters;
nowhere else mentioned: he died, according to the above Jewish writer F15, in the one hundredth year of Abraham, and in his days, according to the eastern writers F16, idolatry began, and the kingdom of Damascus was set up F17; and Samirus, king of the Chaldeans, invented weights and measures, weaving silk, and the art of dying F19.
