PELEG. King of Babylon. (S2,S5). (Peleg-S1, S3,S5)(Phalec-S2)(Falik-S5).
He was born in 1758AM (Anno Mundi); son of EBER.
Born (in 2243BC-S2,S5)(in 2244 B.C.-S1), in Salem (Jerusalem), Canaan. (S2,S5).
Named Peleg because in his days was the earth divided.
And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan. Genesis 10:25
There are several theories given for this statement:
1. He may have lived at the time of the dispersion from Babel. From the Tower of Babel, the people were dispersed.
Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. Genesis 11:9
The Book of Mormon speaks of Jared and his descendants, and says:
33 Which Jared came forth with his brother and their families, with some others and their families, from the great tower, at the time the Lord confounded the language of the people, and swore in his wrath that they should be scattered upon all the face of the earth; and according to the word of the Lord the people were scattered. Ether 1:33.
2. There is a theory that this may be a reference to dispersion of the two races which sprang from Eber, the one spreading towards Mesopotamia and Syria, and the other southward into Arabia. (S?). However, this seems to be too simplistic to be the event upon which the Bible has reference.
3. From the dividing of the continents. If all the water was in one place, then naturally all the land was in one place; therefore, the shape of the earth, as to the water and the land surface, was not as we find it today. Then we read in Genesis that there came a time when the earth was divided. There are some people who believe that this simply means that the land surface was divided among the various tribes, but this is not the meaning; it was an actual dividing of the surface of the earth, and it was broken up as we find it now. Joseph Fielding Smith, Jr., Doctrines of Salvation, Vol. 3, pp. 74-75. (S6).
My personal opinion is that the dividing of the continents probably occurred at the time of the flood, and that the dispersion in the time of Peleg was the division of languages, and the subsequent dividing into nations.
Assuming that the dispersion of nations, following the overthrow of Babel, is meant:
In the Book of Sothis, the author of this work places the dispersion of the nations in the fifth year of Peleg. This would be 1763AM.
After Alexander the Great had defeated Darius at Gaugmela near Arbela, in the year 331BC Alexander journeyed to Babylon. Here he received 1903 years of astronomical observations from the Chaldeans, which they claimed dated back to the founding of Babylon. If this was so, then that would place the founding of Babylon in 2234 BC, or about thirteen years after the birth of Peleg. This was recorded in the sixth book of De Caelo (“About the heavens”) by Simplicius, a Latin writer in the 6th century AD. Porphyry (an anti-Christian Greek philosopher, c. 234–305 AD) also deduced the same number.(2.Ussher J., Annales Veteris Testamenti, Flesher and Sadler, London, p. 5, 1654.) (S7).
Peleg was 30 when his son Reu was born in 1788AM, or 2213BC.
He lived 239 years. (S2,S3). He died in 1997AM (Anno Mundi).
And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu: And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and begat sons and daughters. Genesis 11:18-19
He died in (2004BC in Salem (Jerusalem), Canaan-S2,S5).
