Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldees. Bible

“Haran died before his father Terah.” This seemingly insignificant piece of historical information is actually quite significant. This is the first time in the Bible that a son is said to die before his father. The confusion and pain caused by sin is thus starting to be seen working through society. To many people, absolutely nothing in life is more painful than the death of one’s child.
