      Salah (???, Shelach, ISO 259-3 Šel? Hebrew word #7974 in Strong's) is an ancestor of the Israelites according to the Table of Nations in Genesis 10. He is thus one of the table's "seventy names". He is called Shelah in 1 Chronicles 1:18 and Sala (Greek word #4527 in Strong's) in the Septuagint and Luke 3:35.

      In the ancestral line from Noah to Abraham, he is the son of Arpachshad (in the Masoretic Text) or Cainan (in the Septuagint) and the father of Eber. The name "Eber" for his son is the original eponym of the Hebrew people, from the root 'abar (???, Hebrew word #5674 in Strong's), "to cross over".

      Salah's age at death is given as 433 (Masoretic) or 460 (Septuagint).

      Henry M. Morris states that Arpachshad, Salah, and Eber are listed as the most important sons since they were in the line of the promised Seed of the Woman.[1]
