Genesis 36

36
Esau Moves
1Now these are the records of the descendants of Esau, (that is, Edom).
2Esau took his [three] wives from the daughters of Canaan: Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah the daughter of Anah, the son of Zibeon the Hivite, 3and Basemath, Ishmael’s daughter, sister of Nebaioth. 4Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, and Basemath bore Reuel, 5and Oholibamah bore Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These are the sons of Esau born to him in Canaan.
6Now Esau took his wives and his sons and his daughters and all the members of his household, and his livestock and all his cattle and all his possessions which he had acquired in the land of Canaan, and he went to a land away from his brother Jacob. 7For their [great flocks and herds and] possessions made it impossible for them to live together [in the same region]; the land in which they lived temporarily could not support them because of their livestock. 8So Esau lived in the hill country of Seir; Esau is Edom.
Descendants of Esau
9These are the records of the generations 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 Adah, Esau’s wife, and Reuel, the son of Basemath, Esau’s wife. 11And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz. 12And Timna was a #See note 22:24.concubine of Eliphaz, Esau’s son; and she bore Amalek to Eliphaz. These are the sons of Adah, Esau’s wife. 13These are the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These are the sons of Basemath, Esau’s wife. 14And these are the sons of Oholibamah, Esau’s wife, the daughter of Anah, the son of Zibeon. She bore to Esau: Jeush, Jalam, and Korah.

31And these are the kings who reigned in the land of Edom before any king reigned over the Israelites: 32Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom, and the name of his city was Dinhabah. 33Now Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned as his successor. 34Then Jobab died, and Husham of the land of the Temanites reigned as his successor. 35And Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad, who defeated Midian in the country of Moab, reigned as his successor.
