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.
