11:31 Terach took his son Abram, his grandson Lot (Haran's son), and his daughter-in-law Sarai (Abram's wife). With them, he left Ur Casdim, heading toward the land of Canaan. They came as far as Charan and settled there.
Vayikach Terach et-Avram beno ve'et Lot ben-Haran ben-beno ve'et Saray kalato eshet Avram beno vayetse'u itam meUr Kasdim lalechet artsah Kena'an vayavo'u ad-Charan vayeshvu sham.
