Phalec in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
("division".) Eber's son, Joktan's brother (Genesis 10:25;
Genesis 11:16). "In his days the earth was divided." His name
marks an epoch in the world's history:
(1) God's intimation of His will that the earth was to
be divided in an orderly distribution of the various families
of mankind, which order the Hamitic Babel builders tried to
contravene (Genesis 11:4), in order to concentrate their
power; also the Hamite Canaanites in "spreading abroad" broke
the bounds assigned by God, seizing the sacred possession of
Shem where Jehovah was to be blessed as "the Lord God of Shem"
(Genesis 9:26; Genesis 9:18-20).
(2) The division of Eber's family; the younger branch,
the Joktanids, migrating into S. Arabia the elder Peleg
remaining in Mesopotamia.
