ARPHAXAD, ARPACHSHAD (ar-făk’săd, Heb. Arpachshad). Third son of Shem, c. 2479 b.c., the first birth recorded after the Flood. He lived 438 years and was the ancestor of the Hebrews and of many Arab tribes. In fact, all Semites descend from him except Arameans, Assyrians, Elamites, and Lydians, (Gen.10.22-Gen.11.13). The name is so far unknown outside the Bible.
