How old was Abram when he left Noah’s house? How old was Abram when Yehovah 1st spoke to him? How old was Abram when he departed Haran the first time? How old was Abram when he saved Lot? How old was Abram when he took Hagar? How old was Abram when he took Isaac to Mount Moriah? How old was Abram when he took Keturah? How old was Abram when he died?

Today’s teaching is in Genesis 15 and 16. As I see it chapter 15 should actually come before Genesis 12. Abraham is 70 years old and is just finishing up his 1st 15 years in Canaan (without Lot). Abram will now go back to his father in Haran for 5 years and “make souls.” These souls are men (his servants) who will come out with him and Lot when he is 75.
Yasher 13:17 And it was in the fifteenth year of Abram’s dwelling in the land of Canaan, which is the seventieth year of the life of Abram, and Yehovah appeared to Abram in that year and he said to him, I am Yehovah who brought thee out from Ur Casdim to give thee this land for an inheritance.
Yasher 13:20 At that time Abram returned and went to Haran to see his father and mother, and his father’s household, and Abram and his wife and all belonging to him returned to Haran, and Abram dwelt in Haran five years.
21 And many of the people of Haran, about seventy-two men, followed Abram and Abram taught them the instruction of Yehovah and his ways, and he taught them to know Yehovah.
Yasher 13:25 And Abram arose and took his woman Sarai and all belonging to him and all that were born to him in his house and the souls which they had made in Haran, and they came out to go to the land of Canaan.
26 And Abram went and returned to the land of Canaan, according to the word of Yehovah. And Lot the son of his brother Haran went with him, and Abram was seventy-five years old when he went forth from Haran to return to the land of Canaan.
Genesis 16 is the story about righteous Hagar, Sarai’s handmaid.
Yasher 15:31 And the king [Pharaoh] took a maiden whom he begat by a concubine, and he gave her to Sarai for a handmaid.
32 And the king said to his daughter, “It is better for thee my daughter to be a handmaid in this man’s house than to be mistress in my house, after we have beheld the evil that befell us on account of this woman.”
Yasher 16:24 And when she saw that she bare no children she took her handmaid Hagar, whom Pharaoh had given her, and she gave her to Abram her man for a woman.
25 For Hagar learned all the ways of Sarai as Sarai taught her, she was not in any way deficient in following her good ways.
These are really interesting stories.

Michael thank you once again for this posting. I used it as part of my daily meditation. Found the ” Life of Abram / Abraham ” very interesting as it painted a total new picture in my mind concerning Abraham. Amazing what he still did at an very old age, truly YHWH blessed him as promised.
It also comes to mind to thank you for the many hours you spend while we go about our daily business, to put these things together for us, that which we fail to notice but which is so important for better understanding of the Torah and the other Scriptures Shalom
Thank you for add me.
