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.
15These are the tribal chiefs of the sons of Esau: The sons of Eliphaz, the firstborn of Esau: Chiefs Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz, 16Korah, Gatam, and Amalek. These are the chiefs of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; they are the sons of Adah. 17These are the sons of Reuel, Esau’s son: Chiefs Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, Mizzah. These are the chiefs of Reuel in the land of Edom; they are the sons of Basemath, Esau’s wife. 18These are the sons of Oholibamah, Esau’s wife: Chiefs Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These are the chiefs born of Oholibamah, daughter of Anah, Esau’s wife. 19These are the sons of Esau, (that is, Edom), and these are their chiefs.
20These are the sons of Seir the Horite, the inhabitants of the land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 21Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These are the chiefs of the Horites, the sons of Seir in the land of Edom. 22The sons of Lotan are Hori and Hemam; and Lotan’s sister is Timna. 23The sons of Shobal are these: Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho, and Onam. 24These are the sons of Zibeon: Aiah and Anah. This is the Anah who found the hot springs in the wilderness as he pastured the donkeys of Zibeon his father. 25The children of Anah are these: Dishon and Oholibamah [Esau’s wife], the daughter of Anah. 26These are the sons of Dishon: Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran. 27Ezer’s sons are these: Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan. 28The sons of Dishan are these: Uz and Aran. 29The Horite chiefs are these: Chiefs Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 30Dishon, Ezer, Dishan. These are the Horite chiefs, according to their various clans in the land of Seir.
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. The name of his [walled] city was Avith. 36Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah succeeded him. 37Then Samlah died, and Shaul of Rehoboth on the river [Euphrates] reigned as his successor. 38And Shaul died, and Baal-hanan son of Achbor reigned as his successor. 39Baal-hanan the son of Achbor died, and then #In 1 Chr 1:50, Hadad.Hadar reigned [as his successor]. His [walled] city was #In 1 Chr 1:50, Pai.Pau; his wife’s name was Mehetabel the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab.
40And these are the names of the tribal chiefs of Esau, according to their families and places of residence, by their names: Chiefs Timna, Alvah, Jetheth, 41Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon, 42Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar, 43Magdiel, and Iram.
