Nahor in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
1. Abraham's grandfather.
2. Abraham's brother. (See ABRAHAM.) Nahor was his
elder brother; married Milcah his niece, Haran's daughter, who
bore eight sons (Genesis 11:26-29; Genesis 22:20-24). His
concubine Reumah bore Zebah and Maachah (whose descendants
David came in contact with: 1 Chronicles 18:8; 1 Chronicles
19:6), Gaham and Thahash. Bethuel his son was Rebekah's
father. She formed a tie between Abraham's seed and the
original Mesopotamian family. Laban and Jacob's connection
renewed it, then it closes. Laban, with polytheistic notions,
distinguishes between his god "the god of Nahor" and "the God
of Abraham," Jacob's God (Genesis 31:3; Genesis 31:5; Genesis
31:19; Genesis 31:29; Genesis 31:42; Genesis 31:49; Genesis
31:53; Joshua 24:2), "the God of Abraham and the Fear of
Isaac." El Naura is a town on Euphrates above Hit.

Nahor in Smiths Bible Dictionary
(snorting), the name of two persons in the family of
1. His grandfather; the son of Serug and father of
Terah. Ge 11:22-25 (B.C. 2174.)
2. Grandson of the preceding son of Terah and brother
of Abraham and Haran. Ge 11:26,27 (B.C. 2000.) The order of
the ages of the family of Terah is not improbably inverted in
the narrative; in which case Nahor instead of being younger
than Abraham, was really older. He married Milcah, the
daughter of his brother Haran; and when Abraham and Lot
migrated to Canaan, Nahor remained behind in the land of his
birth, on the eastern side of the Euphrates.
