The birth year of Nahor is estimated. Nahor married Milcah, daughter of his brother Haran, and had eight sons: Uz, Buz, Kemuel, Chesed, Hazo, Pildash, Jidlaph, and Bethuel. Nahor's brother Abraham did not hear of the births of any of these men until after the incident on Mount Moriah when God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac. (Genesis 22:20-23 ) However, the verses suggest that Nahor married Milcah before Abraham left Haran, but did not sire his first-born son until after Abraham had left.

Bethuel had a son named Laban and a daughter named Rebekah, who ultimately married Nahor's nephew Isaac. Nahor's great-granddaughters and Rebekah's nieces Rachel and Leah became Jacob's wives.
