Peleg is the brother of Joktan , who are the sons of Eber (Genesis 10:25). Peleg and Joktan are the two dividing arch fathers of the Shemites . Peleg becomes the ancestor of Abraham and the Joktanites are the last mentioned Shemite generation before the tower of Babel is built. The name Peleg comes from the verb ( palag ), split divide; "for in his days the earth was divided" (Genesis 10:25). Derivations are:
Rachel is one of four arch-mothers of Israel (Genesis 29:6). She is one of two wives of Jacob , sister of Jacob's first wife Leah (note that in the later Levitical code the marrying two sisters became prohibited - Leviticus 18:18); daughter of Laban , who is the son of Bethuel , who is the son of Nahor , the brother of Abraham . The two sons of Rachel are Joseph and Benjamin . The name Rachel is identical to the word ( rahel ) meaning ewe. This word occurs a mere four times: Genesis 31:8; 32:15; Song 6:6; and most famously Isaiah 53:7, "Like a sheep (
There are two Lamechs mentioned in the Bible. Lamech the First is the last mentioned father in the line of Cain (Genesis 4:18). Lamech the Second is the father of Noah , the grandfather of Shem , Ham and Japheth .
Raamah is a son of Cush , son of Ham , son of Noah (Genesis 10:7). The name Raamah derives from the root ( ra'am ) meaning to thunder (of the sea: Psalm 96:11, of God: 1 Samuel 2:10). An obvious derivative (or rather the parent noun) is ( ra'am ), meaning thunder (of God's presence: Isaiah 29:6, of meteorological thunder: Psalm 81:7). Another derivation,
There are a surprising six men named Ishmael in the Bible: A descendant of Jonathan (1 Chronicles 8:38); The father of Zebadiah (2 Chronicles 19:11); An officer under Joash (2 Cr 23:3); The murderer of Gedaliah, the Babylonian governor over the remnant in Judah (2 Kings 25:25); and a priest who divorced his foreign wife (Ezra 10:22). But the most famous Ishmael is the son of Abraham with Hagar . Because of rivalry between Hagar and Abraham's wife Sarah , Hagar and Ishmael are sent away and they end up in the Sinai desert where Ishmael becomes the father of a nation that exists of twelve tribes, just like Israel (Genesis 25:16). The name Ishmael is a compilation of two elements:
Abraham is the famous arch-father of all all believers (Romans 4:11, Galatians 3:7). God cuts the covenant with Abraham of which Jesus is the fulfillment (Genesis 15, Galatians 3:7, 16, 29). The Abarim Publications Editorial Team looked on dozens of web sites and countless hard-copies and all but a few merrily report that the name Abraham comes from the Hebrew words ab and hamon and means Father Of A Multitude. That these two words contain no R seems not to bother anyone.
In the Bible, the name Baal is applied to two different men, one town and one idol; Baal the male god of Canaan and Phoenicians; counterpart of the female Asherah (Judges 2:13). The town called Baal is located in the southern part of the territory of Judah (Joshua 15:29), and is probably the same as the town named Bilhah (1 Chronicles 4:29), and perhaps even the town named Balah (Joshua 19:3). The two men named Baal are a descendant of Reuben (1 Chronicles 5:6), and a son of Jeiel and Maacah of Gibeon in Benjamin (1 Chronicles 8:30). Note: this name shouldn't be pronounced as a monosyllabic "Bale" but as Bah-Al. The word Baal is derived from the common Hebrew verb ( ba'al ), own, rule, possess.
