Shem, Wife of
Joined Shem and the rest of Noah’s family on the ark (Genesis 7:1, 7, 13, 23) and survived the flood with them (Genesis 8:16, 18). We do not know her name, and these are the only verses in which she is mentioned. The only other thing we can assume about her is that she was the mother of Shem’s children, which we know at least include Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram (Genesis 10:22). Shem is also the “father of all the children of Eber” (Genesis 10:21), though the Eber referred to there is likely his great-grandson Eber by Arphaxad (Genesis 10:24), who is part of the genealogy of Abram (Abraham) outlined in Genesis 11.
