Genesis 11:25

And Nahor lived, after he begat Terah, one hundred and
ninteen years
In all one hundred and forty eight years; so sensibly did the lives of the patriarchs decrease: in the days of Nahor, the Arabic writers F20 say, was a great earthquake, which had never been observed before; idolaters increasing and offering their children to demons, God raised a tempest like a deluge, which broke their images and destroyed their temples in Arabia, and covered them in heaps of sand, which remained to the days of those writers, as they affirm: in his days it is also said Spain, Portugal, and Arragon were founded F21:

and begat sons and daughters;
of whom no other account is given: he died, as a Jewish chronologer says F23, in the one hundred and tenth year of Abraham.


F20 Patricides, p. 15. Elmacinus, p. 30. apud Hottinger. p. 279, 280.
F21 Juchasin, fol. 135. 2.
F23 R. Gedaliah, ut supra. (fol. 2. 1.)
