31 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter; in-law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years; and Terah died in Haran.

So, Abram departed, as the Yord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram to as seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran, . 5 Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went fo to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Camaan they came. bram F. through the land unto the place of Sichem
