Genesis 11:25 Meaning and Commentary

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.
