The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleGenesis 11:26
And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and
] Abram, though named first, does not appear to be the
eldest, but rather Haran; nay, it seems pretty plain that Abram was not
born until the one hundred and thirtieth year of his father's life, for
Terah was two hundred and five years old when he died, (Genesis 11:32)
and Abram was but seventy five years of age when he went out of Haran
to Canaan, (Genesis 12:4) and that was as soon as his father died there;
and so that if seventy five are taken out two hundred and five, there
will remain one hundred and thirty, in which year and not before Abram
must be born: the wife of Terah, of whom Abram was born, according to
the Jewish writers F24, her name was Chamtelaah, the daughter of
Carnebo, or as others F25 call her, Amthalai; but by the Arabic writers
F26 she is called Juna: the Jews say F1 Terah was the first that found
out the way of coining money, and that in his days men began to worship
images, and that he was the chief of their priests, but afterwards
repented; and that he was an idolater appears from (Joshua 24:2) .
