The Family Line of Esau
1Here is the story of the family line of Esau. Esau was also called Edom.
2Esau got his wives from among the women of Canaan. He married Adah, the daughter of Elon the Hittite. He also married Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah and the granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite. 3And he married Basemath, the daughter of Ishmael and the sister of Nebaioth.
4Adah had Eliphaz by Esau. Basemath had Reuel. 5Oholibamah had Jeush, Jalam and Korah. All of them were Esau’s sons. They were born in Canaan.
6Esau moved to a land far away from his brother Jacob. Esau took with him his wives, his sons and daughters, and all the people who lived with him. He also took his livestock and all his other animals. He took everything he had acquired in Canaan. 7Jacob and Esau owned so much that they couldn’t remain together. There wasn’t enough land for both of them. They had too much livestock. 8So Esau made his home in the hill country of Seir. Esau was also called Edom.
9Here is the story of the family line of Esau. He’s the father of the people of Edom. They live in the hill country of Seir.
10Here are the names of Esau’s sons.
They are Eliphaz, the son of Esau’s wife Adah, and Reuel, the son of Esau’s wife Basemath.
11The sons of Eliphaz were
Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam and Kenaz. 12Esau’s son Eliphaz also had a concubine named Timna. She had Amalek by Eliphaz. They were grandsons of Esau’s wife Adah.
13The sons of Reuel were
Nahath, Zerah, Shammah and Mizzah. They were grandsons of Esau’s wife Basemath.
14Esau’s wife Oholibamah was the daughter of Anah and the granddaughter of Zibeon.
She had Jeush, Jalam and Korah by Esau.
15Here are the chiefs among Esau’s sons.
Eliphaz was Esau’s oldest son. The sons of Eliphaz were
Chiefs Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz, 16Korah, Gatam and Amalek. They were the chiefs in Edom who were sons of Eliphaz. They were Adah’s grandsons.

1The following is the genealogy of Esau (also known as Edom). 2Esau married two Canaanite women: Adah, daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah, daughter of Anah, and granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite. 3In addition he married Basemath, daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth.
4Adah had a son for Esau named Eliphaz. Basemath had Reul. 5Oholibamah had Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These were the sons of Esau, who were born to him in Canaan.
6Esau took his wives, sons and daughters, and everyone in his household, together with his livestock, all his other animals, and all the possessions he had gained while in Canaan, and went to live in a country far away from his brother Jacob. 7He did this because the land they were living in couldn't support both of them with all their livestock. 8Esau settled down in the hill country of Seir.
9The following is the genealogy of Esau, father of the Edomites, who lived in the hill country of Seir:
10These were the names of Esau's sons: Eliphaz, son of Esau's wife Adah, and Reuel, son of Esau's wife Basemath. 11The sons of Eliphaz were: Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz. 12Timna, the concubine of Esau's son Eliphaz, had Amalek for Eliphaz. These were the descendants of Esau's wife Adah.
13These were the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. They were the descendants of Esau's wife Basemath.
14These were the sons of Esau's wife Oholibamah, daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zibeon, whom she had for Esau: Jeush, Jalam, and Korah.
15These were the tribal leaders of Esau's sons. The tribal leaders of the sons of Eliphaz (Esau's firstborn) were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz, 16Korah,#36:16. “Korah”: as listed here is often considered to be a copyist's mistake since he is listed as a son of Esau in verse 14. Gatam, and Amalek. They were the tribal leaders of Eliphaz in the country of Edom, and they were the descendants of Adah.
17These were the sons of Esau's son Reuel: tribal leaders Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. They were the tribal leaders descended from Reuel in the country of Edom, and they were the descendants of Esau's wife Basemath.
18These were the sons of Esau's wife Oholibamah: tribal leaders Jeush, Jalam, and Korah; they were the tribal leaders descended from Esau's wife Oholibamah, daughter of Anah. 19All these were the sons of Esau (also called Edom), and they were their tribal leaders.
20These were the sons of Seir the Horite, who were living in the country: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 21Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan; they were the tribal leaders of the Horites, the descendants of Seir in the land of Edom.
22The sons of Lotan were Hori and Hemam. Timna was Lotan's sister.
23These were the sons of Shobal: Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.
24These were the sons of Zibeon: Aiah and Anah. (This was the Anah who discovered the hot springs#36:24. “Hot springs”: the meaning of this Hebrew word is uncertain. in the desert while he was looking after the donkeys of his father Zibeon.)
25These were the children of Anah: Dishon and Oholibamah, daughter of Anah.
26These were the sons of Dishon: Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran.
27These were the sons of Ezer: Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan.
28These were the sons of Dishan: Uz and Aran.
29These were the tribal leaders of the Horites: tribal leaders Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 30Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. They were the tribal leaders of the Horites listed according to their tribes in the country of Seir.
31These were the kings who ruled in the land of Edom before there was any king who ruled over the Israelites:
32Bela, son of Beor, ruled in Edom and the name of his town was Dinhabah.
33When Bela died, Jobab, son of Zerah from Bozrah, took over as king.
34When Jobab died, Husham from the land of the Temanites took over as king.
35When Husham died, Hadad, son of Bedad, took over as king. He was the one who defeated the Midianites in the country of Moab, and the name of his town was Avith.
36When Hadad died, Samlah from Masrekah took over as king.
37When Samlah died, Shaul from Rehoboth on the Euphrates took over as king.

39When Baal-hanan, son of Achbor, died, Hadad took over as king. The name of his town was Pau, and his wife's name was Mehetabel, daughter of Matred, daughter of Me-zahab.
40These were the names of the tribal leaders descended from Esau, according to their families and where they lived, listed by name: tribal leaders Timna, Alvah, Jetheth, 41Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon, 42Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar, 43Magdiel, and Iram.
