{Genesis 11:29} And Abram 87 and Nahor 5152 took 3947 z8799 them wives: 802 the name 8034 of Abram's 87 wife 802 [was] Sarai; 8297 and the name 8034 of Nahor's 5152 wife, 802 Milcah, 4435 the daughter 1323 of Haran, 2039 the father 1 of Milcah, 4435 and the father 1 of Iscah. 3252
Sarai:
"And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah [shall] her name [be]." {Gen 17:15} + "And yet indeed [she is] my sister; she [is] the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife." {Gen 20:12}
Milcah:
"And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she hath also born children unto thy brother Nahor;" {Gen 22:20} + "And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder." {Gen 24:15}
Iscah:
Iscah is called the daughter-in-law of Terah ("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." {Gen 11:31}), as being Abram's wife; yet Abram afterwards said, "she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother" ("And yet indeed [she is] my sister; she [is] the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife." {Gen 20:12}). Probably Haran was the eldest son of Terah, and Abram his youngest by another wife; and thus Sarai was the daughter, or grand-daughter of Terah, Abram's father, but not of his mother.
