Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 11:31

_ _ Sarai his daughter-in-law — the same as Iscah [Genesis 11:29], granddaughter of Terah, probably by a second wife, and by early usages considered marriageable to her uncle, Abraham.

_ _ they came unto Haran — two days’ journey south-southeast from Ur, on the direct road to the ford of the Euphrates at Rakka, the nearest and most convenient route to Palestine.
