What does Genesis 11:32 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

The chapter ends by telling us that Terah lived to be 205 years old before dying in Haran. Although quite a short lifespan compared to those who lived before and immediately following the flood, Terah would have lived long enough to be alive for nearly all the major events of Abraham's life, including the eventual birth of Terah's grandson, Isaac.
