Who is Shem, son of the Biblical Noah. Shem is also in the Hebrew Bible as well as in Islamic literature. The children of Shem were Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud and Aram, in addition to daughters. Abraham, the patriarch of the Hebrews and Arabs, was one of the descendants of Arphaxad. Islamic literature describes Shem as one of the believing sons of Noah. Some sources even identify Shem as a prophet in his own right and that he was the next prophet after his father. Shem is mentioned several times in Genesis 5-11 as well as 1 Chronicles 1-4. Genesis 10-21 refers to relative ages of Shem and his brother Japheth, but with sufficient ambiguity to have yielded different English translations. The verse is translated in the King James Version as: “Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.” However, the New American Standard Bible gives: “Also to Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, and the older brother of Japheth, children were born”.
