1 Chronicles 5:26. Pul and Tiglath Pileser carried the men of Reuben, Gad, and half Manasseh away to Hara while most were taken to Habor. The name may be akin to Aria and Aryans, the Greek for Media and the Medes. Probably HARAN, the Mesopotamian city whither Abram came from Ur, where he received his second call from God, and where his brother Nahor's children settled (Genesis 11:31; Genesis 24:10; Genesis 27:43; Genesis 25:20) in Padan Aram or the low and beautiful region at the foot of the hills below mount Masius, between the Khabour and the Euphrates. (See ABRAHAM.) Here still is a town bearing the old name Harran, whose people retained until lately the Chaldean language and idols; upon the Belilk (in ancient times, Bilichus), an affluent of the Euphrates. Called Charran Acts 7:2; Acts 7:4. The scene of Crassus' defeat. At our Lord's time in Abgarus' kingdom of Edessa.
