Serug in Wikipedia
Serug (Hebrew: שְׂרוּג, S'rug ; "branch") was the son of Reu and
the father of Nahor, according to Genesis 11:20-23. He is also
the great-grandfather of Abraham.
In the Masoretic text that modern Bibles are based on, he was
30 when Nahor was born, and lived to the age of 230. The
Septuagint and Samaritan Pentateuch texts state that he was
130 on fathering Nahor, and the Septuagint accordingly gives
his age at death as 330.
He is called Saruch in the Greek version of Luke 3:35.
