Peleg

PELEG (pē'lĕg, Heb. pelegh, division). One of the sons of Eber, brother of Joktan and the father of Reu (Gen.10.25; Gen.11.16-Gen.11.19; 1Chr.1.25). The reason for his being named Peleg is that “in his time the earth was divided.” This probably refers to the confounding of the language and the consequent scattering of the descendants of Noah (Gen.11.1-Gen.11.9).
