His name in Hebrew is: ארפכשד `Arpakshad (ar-pak-shad’) Strongs #775. In Greek:
Άρφαξάδ Arphaxad (ar-fax-ad’) Strongs #742.
Shem, Arphaxad’s father was 100 when Arphaxad was born, and Arphaxad was born two
years after The Flood. Arphaxad lived to the age of 35 when his son Salah was born.
After the birth of Salah, Arphaxad lived to the age of 438.
There are two different spellings for the name Arphaxad. The Book of Jubilees spells
it as “Arpakeed” or “Arphaksed,” whereas Jasher spells it as “Arpachsed.”
There isn’t much known of Arphaxad in Scripture, Jasher or Jubilees, except that
Arphaxad married a relative in Jubilees 8:1.
Notes for Rasuja:
Rasuja is only mentioned in Jubilees 8:1 as the first wife of Arphaxad. She is not
mentioned in Jasher or in the Scriptures.
Notes for Milka:
Milka is only mentioned in Jubilees 8:4. Although Jubilees does not mention Salah’s
brothers, it can only be guessed that Salah’s brothers (who are mentioned in Jasher
7:16) came from the same mother.
