Genesis Gen

Need help translating the bible?

I have a homework problem to do where I need to figure out how old Sem was in Genesis..

GEN 11:10 These are the generations of Sem: Sem was a hundred years old when he begot Arphaxad, two years old when he begot Arphaxad, two years after the flood.

GEN 11:11 And Sem lived after he begot Arphaxad, five hundred years, and begot sons and daughters.

So he lived 500 years after he had Arphaxad but how old was he before that?

(By the way, I know it's rubbish..)
Thank you "Its that guy"!

In my King James Bible, he's called Shem, the middle son of Noah.

11:10 These are the generations of Shem: Shem was an hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood

11:11 And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and begat sons and daughters.

So he lived to be 600. A ripe old age! And he was 98 when his dad built an ark big enough to hold all the animals.

There are some facts in Genesis that are given twice--for instance there are two completely different stories of the Creation, and two stories of Noah. The idea is that at one point there were two different versions of the story and the editors didn't know which to include so they just included both, one after another. So if your Bible says he was two years old and also 100 years old, it's possible that that's what's happening there.

Also in those early days they didn't have all the numbers we have today. Many primitive languages had words for one, two , three, and four, and after that it's just 'many'. In the Bible the number 40 comes up a lot--40 days of rain, 40 years in the wilderness, etc.--and it's thought that the word for 40 was the same word for 'a lot'. So numbers are not as distinct as we read them today.
