SERUG (sē'rŭg, Heb. serûgh, meaning uncertain). A descendant of Shem; son of Reu and great-grandfather of Abraham (Gen.11.20, Gen.11.22-Gen.11.23; 1Chr.1.26). In KJV of Luke.3.35 he is called Saruch (niv retains Serug). He is thus in the messianic line. Saurgi, a city of the district of Harran mentioned in Assyrian texts, was probably named after him. He lived 230 years.
