The Family of Esau
1Now this is the genealogy of Esau, #Gen. 25:30who is Edom. 2#Gen. 26:34; 28:9Esau took his wives from the daughters of Canaan: Adah the daughter of Elon the #2 Kin. 7:6Hittite; #Gen. 36:25Aholibamah the daughter of Anah, the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite; 3and #Gen. 28:9Basemath, Ishmael’s daughter, sister of Nebajoth. 4Now #1 Chr. 1:35Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, and Basemath bore Reuel. 5And Aholibamah bore Jeush, Jaalam, and Korah. These were the sons of Esau who were born to him in the land of Canaan.
6Then Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, and all the persons of his household, his cattle and all his animals, and all his goods which he had gained in the land of Canaan, and went to a country away from the presence of his brother Jacob. 7#Gen. 13:6, 11For their possessions were too great for them to dwell together, and #Gen. 17:8; 28:4; Heb. 11:9the land where they were strangers could not support them because of their livestock. 8So Esau dwelt in #Gen. 32:3; Deut. 2:5; Josh. 24:4Mount Seir. #Gen. 36:1, 19Esau is Edom.
9And this is the genealogy of Esau the father of the Edomites in Mount Seir. 10These were the names of Esau’s sons: #1 Chr. 1:35Eliphaz the son of Adah the wife of Esau, and Reuel the son of Basemath the wife of Esau. 11And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz.
12Now Timna was the concubine of Eliphaz, Esau’s son, and she bore #Ex. 17:8–16; Num. 24:20; Deut. 25:17–19; 1 Sam. 15:2, 3Amalek to Eliphaz. These were the sons of Adah, Esau’s wife.
13These were the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These were the sons of Basemath, Esau’s wife.

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.
