Genesis 36

36
Esau’s descendants
1This is the account of the family line of Esau (that is, Edom).
2Esau took his wives from the women of Canaan: Adah daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite – 3also Basemath daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth.
4Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, Basemath bore Reuel, 5and Oholibamah bore Jeush, Jalam and Korah. These were the sons of Esau, who were born to him in Canaan.
6Esau took his wives and sons and daughters and all the members of his household, as well as his livestock and all his other animals and all the goods he had acquired in Canaan, and moved to a land some distance from his brother Jacob. 7Their possessions were too great for them to remain together; the land where they were staying could not support them both because of their livestock. 8So Esau (that is, Edom) settled in the hill country of Seir.
9This is the account of the family line of Esau the father of the Edomites in the hill country of Seir.
10These are the names of Esau’s sons:
Eliphaz, the son of Esau’s wife Adah, and Reuel, the son of Esau’s wife Basemath.
11The sons of Eliphaz:
Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam and Kenaz. 12Esau’s son Eliphaz also had a concubine named Timna, who bore him Amalek. These were grandsons of Esau’s wife Adah.
13The sons of Reuel:
Nahath, Zerah, Shammah and Mizzah. These were grandsons of Esau’s wife Basemath.
14The sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zibeon, whom she bore to Esau:
Jeush, Jalam and Korah.
15These were the chiefs among Esau’s descendants:
The sons of Eliphaz the firstborn of Esau:
Chiefs Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz, 16Korah,#36:16 Masoretic Text; Samaritan Pentateuch (also verse 11 and 1 Chron. 1:36) does not have Korah. Gatam and Amalek. These were the chiefs descended from Eliphaz in Edom; they were grandsons of Adah.
17The sons of Esau’s son Reuel:
Chiefs Nahath, Zerah, Shammah and Mizzah. These were the chiefs descended from Reuel in Edom; they were grandsons of Esau’s wife Basemath.
18The sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah:
Chiefs Jeush, Jalam and Korah. These were the chiefs descended from Esau’s wife Oholibamah daughter of Anah.
19These were the sons of Esau (that is, Edom), and these were their chiefs.
20These were the sons of Seir the Horite, who were living in the region:
Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 21Dishon, Ezer and Dishan. These sons of Seir in Edom were Horite chiefs.
22The sons of Lotan:
Hori and Homam.#36:22 Hebrew Hemam, a variant of Homam (see 1 Chron. 1:39) Timna was Lotan’s sister.
23The sons of Shobal:
Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho and Onam.
24The sons of Zibeon:
Aiah and Anah. (This is the Anah who discovered the hot springs#36:24 Vulgate; Syriac discovered water; the meaning of the Hebrew for this word is uncertain. in the desert while he was grazing the donkeys of his father Zibeon.)
25The children of Anah:
Dishon and Oholibamah daughter of Anah.
26The sons of Dishon#36:26 Hebrew Dishan, a variant of Dishon:
Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran and Keran.
27The sons of Ezer:
Bilhan, Zaavan and Akan.
28The sons of Dishan:
Uz and Aran.
29These were the Horite chiefs:
Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 30Dishon, Ezer and Dishan.
These were the Horite chiefs, according to their divisions, in the land of Seir.
The rulers of Edom
31These were the kings who reigned in Edom before any Israelite king reigned:
32Bela son of Beor became king of Edom. His city was named Dinhabah.
33When Bela died, Jobab son of Zerah from Bozrah succeeded him as king.
34When Jobab died, Husham from the land of the Temanites succeeded him as king.
35When Husham died, Hadad son of Bedad, who defeated Midian in the country of Moab, succeeded him as king. His city was named Avith.
36When Hadad died, Samlah from Masrekah succeeded him as king.
37When Samlah died, Shaul from Rehoboth on the river succeeded him as king.
38When Shaul died, Baal-Hanan son of Akbor succeeded him as king.
39When Baal-Hanan son of Akbor died, Hadad#36:39 Many manuscripts of the Masoretic Text, Samaritan Pentateuch and Syriac (see also 1 Chron. 1:50); most manuscripts of the Masoretic Text Hadar succeeded him as king. His city was named Pau, and his wife’s name was Mehetabel daughter of Matred, the daughter of Me-Zahab.
40These were the chiefs descended from Esau, by name, according to their clans and regions:
Timna, Alvah, Jetheth,
41Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon,
42Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar,
43Magdiel and Iram.
These were the chiefs of Edom, according to their settlements in the land they occupied.
This is the family line of Esau, the father of the Edomites.

The Descendants of Esau
(1 Chronicles 1.34-54)
1Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom. 2#Gen 26.34. Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholiba´mah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zib´e-on the Hivite; 3#Gen 28.9. and Bash´emath Ish´ma-el's daughter, sister of Neba´joth. 4And Adah bare to Esau El´iphaz, and Bash´emath bare Reu´el; 5and Aholiba´mah bare Je´ush, and Ja´alam, and Korah: these are the sons of Esau, which were born unto him in the land of Canaan.
6And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the persons of his house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his substance, which he had got in the land of Canaan; and went into the country from the face of his brother Jacob. 7For their riches were more than that they might dwell together; and the land wherein they were strangers could not bear them because of their cattle. 8Thus dwelt Esau in mount Se´ir: Esau is Edom.
9And these are the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites in mount Se´ir: 10these are the names of Esau's sons; El´iphaz the son of Adah the wife of Esau, Reu´el the son of Bash´emath the wife of Esau. 11And the sons of El´iphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, and Gatam, and Kenaz. 12And Timna was concubine to El´iphaz Esau's son; and she bare to El´iphaz Am´alek: these were the sons of Adah Esau's wife. 13And these are the sons of Reu´el; Nahath, and Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah: these were the sons of Bash´emath Esau's wife. 14And these were the sons of Aholiba´mah, the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zib´e-on, Esau's wife: and she bare to Esau Je´ush, and Ja´alam, and Korah.
15These were dukes of the sons of Esau: the sons of El´iphaz the firstborn son of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz, 16duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Am´alek: these are the dukes that came of El´iphaz in the land of Edom: these were the sons of Adah. 17And these are the sons of Reu´el Esau's son; duke Nahath, duke Zerah, duke Shammah, duke Mizzah: these are the dukes that came of Reu´el in the land of Edom: these are the sons of Bash´emath Esau's wife. 18And these are the sons of Aholiba´mah Esau's wife; duke Je´ush, duke Ja´alam, duke Korah: these were the dukes that came of Aholiba´mah the daughter of Anah, Esau's wife. 19These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their dukes.
20These are the sons of Se´ir the Horite, who inhabited the land; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zib´e-on, and Anah, 21and Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan: these are the dukes of the Horites, the children of Se´ir in the land of Edom. 22And the children of Lotan were Hori and Hemam; and Lotan's sister was Timna. 23And the children of Shobal were these; Alvan, and Man´ahath, and Ebal, Shepho, and Onam. 24And these are the children of Zib´e-on; both Ajah, and Anah: this was that Anah that found the mules in the wilderness, as he fed the asses of Zib´e-on his father. 25And the children of Anah were these; Dishon, and Aholiba´mah the daughter of Anah. 26And these are the children of Dishon; Hemdan, and Eshban, and Ithran, and Cheran. 27The children of Ezer are these; Bilhan, and Za´avan, and Akan. 28The children of Dishan are these; Uz, and Aran. 29These are the dukes that came of the Horites; duke Lotan, duke Shobal, duke Zib´e-on, duke Anah, 30duke Dishon, duke Ezer, duke Dishan: these are the dukes that came of Hori, among their dukes in the land of Se´ir.
31And these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom, before there reigned any king over the children of Israel. 32And Bela the son of Be´or reigned in Edom: and the name of his city was Din´habah. 33And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead. 34And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of Te´mani reigned in his stead. 35And Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad, who smote Mid´i-an in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Avith. 36And Hadad died, and Samlah of Masre´kah reigned in his stead. 37And Samlah died, and Saul of Reho´both by the river reigned in his stead. 38And Saul died, and Ba´al–ha´nan the son of Achbor reigned in his stead. 39And Ba´al–ha´nan the son of Achbor died, and Hadar reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Pa´u; and his wife's name was Mehet´abel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Me´zahab.
40And these are the names of the dukes that came of Esau, according to their families, after their places, by their names; duke Timnah, duke Alvah, duke Jetheth, 41duke Aholiba´mah, duke Elah, duke Pinon, 42duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar, 43duke Mag´di-el, duke Iram: these be the dukes of Edom, according to their habitations in the land of their possession: he is Esau the father of the Edomites.
