Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 10:25

_ _ Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided — After the flood (Genesis 11:10-16) the descendants of Noah settled at pleasure and enjoyed the produce of the undivided soil. But according to divine instruction, made probably through Eber, who seems to have been distinguished for piety or a prophetic character, the earth was divided and his son’s name, “Peleg,” was given in memory of that event (see Deuteronomy 32:8; Acts 17:26).
