Nahor, in the Bible. 1 Abraham's grandfather. 2 Abraham's brother.
Nahor(or Nacor) (Heb. נָחֹור) is the name of two persons in Torah who were both descended from Arpachshad:

  1. The son of Serug and father of Terah, who was the father of Abraham. According to Jubilees, his mother was Milcah daughter of Kaber, and he married 'Iyoska, daughter of Nesteg of the kin of Ur Kasdim (the son of Arpachshad for whom Ur was named). He was 29 when his oldest son was born and lived to the age of 148.
  2. A grandson of 1., son of Terah, and elder brother of Abraham. He married Milcah, the daughter of his brother Haran, and lived in the land of his nativity on the east of the river Euphrates at Haran. He was the father of Bethuel and his granddaughter Rebekah became Isaac's wife. His great-granddaughters and Rebekah's nieces Rachel and Leah became Jacob's wives.
