Peleg or Phalec (Luke 3:35 KJV) is one of the sons of Eber. At the age of thirty-four, Eber begat Peleg, brother of Joktan. The name Peleg means “division”, as Genesis 10:25 KJV reads “…for in his (Peleg) days was the earth divided…” The phrase “was the earth divided” is a little bit vague.

We can interpret this literally as the earth had this massive earthquake that resulted in the continental separation. Or it can refer to the separation of the people of the earth. Based on the chronological structure of the Bible Genesis 11: 1 – 9 speaks of how God baffled the language of the people resulting in their division. The following verses, Genesis 11:10-32 KJV, tells about the Generation of Shem including Peleg. So, another interpretation would be the earth was divided since people no longer shared the same language after the incident at the Tower of Babel. At the age of thirty, Peleg begat Reu. After two hundred and nine years, Peleg begat other sons and daughters (Genesis 11:18-19 KJV). He lived a total of two hundred thirty-nine years. Charting this on the Biblical Timeline, Peleg’s existence is from 2247 BC to 2008 BC.
