Arphaxad was a son of Shem and subsequently, a grandson of Noah. When Shem was one-hundred years old he gave birth to Arphaxad, two years after the flood[1]. Arphaxad was the firstborn, but also had several brothers including Elam, Ashur (ancestor of Assyria), Lud and Aram (ancestor of the language of Aramaic)[2].
