How old was Abraham when he left Haran?


75 years old

Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. Genesis 12:4

At least 135 years old

Our father Abraham ... dwelt in Haran: and from thence, when his father was dead, he removed himself into this land. Acts 7:2-4

And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram. Genesis 11:26-32 .

And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years; and Terah died in Haran. Genesis 11:32


Acts 7:4 says that Abram didn't leave Haran until after his father died. Genesis 11:26 says that Abram's father was 70 years old when Abram was born, and Abram's father lived to be 205 (11:32). Clearly, then, Abram was at least 135 when he left Haran. Yet Genesis 12:4 says he left Haran when he was only 75.
