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.

13These were the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These were the sons of Basemath, Esau’s wife.
14These were the sons of Aholibamah, Esau’s wife, the daughter of Anah, the daughter of Zibeon. And she bore to Esau: Jeush, Jaalam, and Korah.

18And these were the sons of Aholibamah, Esau’s wife: Chief Jeush, Chief Jaalam, and Chief Korah. These were the chiefs who descended from Aholibamah, Esau’s wife, the daughter of Anah. 19These were the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these were their chiefs.

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: #Job 1:1Uz and Aran.

The Kings of Edom
