Shem:
Shem signifies name or renown; and his, indeed, was great both in a temporal and spiritual sense, inasmuch as he was destined to be the lineal ancestor of the promised Seed of the woman, to which Noah might allude in his pious ejaculation, "And he said, Blessed [be] the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant." {Gen 9:26}.
the father:
"These [are] the generations of Shem: Shem [was] an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood: ... And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran." {Gen 11:10-26}
Eber:
"And ships [shall come] from the coast of Chittim, and shall afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber, and he also shall perish for ever." {Num 24:24}
the brother:
"The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras." {Gen 10:2}
