|NASB||Genesis 11:31 ¶ Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran, his grandson, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram's wife; and they went out together from Ur of the Chaldeans in order to enter the land of Canaan; and they went as far as Haran, and settled there.|
|Genesis 11:31 ¶ Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran, his grandson, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram's wife; and they went out together to go from Ur of the Chaldeans into the land of Canaan; but when they came to Haran [about five hundred and fifty miles northwest of Ur], they settled there.|
|Bible Question: Gen. 12:1 when the Lord (HAD) told Abraham to get out of his country and his family he was to leave alone not with his father not Lot. On Gen 11:31 they got out but his father went with him and died in Haran and he continued with Lot. We had an argument cause some said that the Lord told him to leave when he was on Haran and other said it was before that when he was at Ur of the Chaldeans cause why they left Ur. Which one is correct? I think is at Ur. Ok the word had said on Gen 12:1 is past|
Bible Answer: I believe that your answer is found two verses prior to chapt. 12.
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.
(and Terah died in Haran vs. 32)
Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country
I am so grateful to serve a Lord wholoves us so much, and has grace upon grace in store for us, that He will not allow us to stake out our camp any where that comes short of the Promised Land.
