Genesis 36
1¶ Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.
2Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan: Adah the daughter of Elon, the Hittite; Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah, the daughter of Zibeon, the Hivite;
3and Bashemath, Ishmael’s daughter, sister of Nebajoth.
4And Adah bore to Esau Eliphaz, and Bashemath bore Reuel,
5and Aholibamah bore Jeush and Jaalam and Korah: these are the sons of Esau, who 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 another country from the face of his brother Jacob.
7For their riches were more than that they might dwell together, and the land in which they were strangers could not bear them because of their livestock.
8Thus dwelt Esau in Mount Seir; Esau is Edom.
9¶ And these are the lineages of Esau, the father of the Edomites in Mount Seir.
10These are the names of Esau’s sons: Eliphaz, the son of Adah, the wife of Esau; Reuel, the son of Bashemath, the wife of Esau.
11And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz.
12And Timna was concubine to Eliphaz, Esau’s son, and she bore to Eliphaz Amalek: these are the sons of Adah, Esau’s wife.
13And these are the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah; these were the sons of Bashemath, Esau’s wife.
14And these were the sons of Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah, the daughter of Zibeon, Esau’s wife: she gave birth unto Esau Jeush, Jaalam, and Korah.
15These are dukes of the sons of Esau. The sons of Eliphaz, the firstborn son of Esau: duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz,
16duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Amalek: these are the dukes that came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Adah.
17And these are the sons of Reuel, Esau’s son; duke Nahath, duke Zerah, duke Shammah, duke Mizzah: these are the dukes that came of Reuel in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Bashemath Esau’s wife.
18And these are the sons of Aholibamah, Esau’s wife: duke Jeush, duke Jaalam, duke Korah; these were the dukes that came of Aholibamah the daughter of Anah, Esau’s wife.
19These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their dukes.
20¶ These are the sons of Seir, the Horite, who inhabited the land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah,
21Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan; these are the dukes of the Horites, the sons of Seir in the land of Edom.
22And the sons of Lotan were Hori and Hemam, and Lotan’s sister was Timna.
23And the sons of Shobal were these: Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.
24And these are the sons of Zibeon: both Ajah and Anah; this was that Anah that invented mules in the wilderness as he fed the asses of Zibeon his father.
25And the children {Heb. sons} of Anah were these: Dishon and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah.
26And these are the sons of Dishon: Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran.
27The sons of Ezer are these: Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan.
28The sons of Dishan are these: Uz and Aran.
29These are the dukes that came of the Horites: duke Lotan, duke Shobal, duke Zibeon, duke Anah,
30duke Dishon, duke Ezer, duke Dishan; these are the dukes that came of Hori; by their dukedoms in the land of Seir.
31¶ And these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom before any king reigned over the sons of Israel.
32And Bela, the son of Beor, reigned in Edom, and the name of his city was Dinhabah.
33And Bela died, and Jobab, the son of Zerah of Bozrah, reigned in his stead.
34And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of Temani reigned in his stead.
35And Husham died, and Hadad, the son of Bedad, who smote Midian in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead; and the name of his city was Avith.
36And Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead.
37And Samlah died, and Saul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in his stead.
38And Saul died, and Baalhanan, the son of Achbor, reigned in his stead.
39And Baalhanan, the son of Achbor, died, and Hadar reigned in his stead; and the name of his city was Pau; and his wife’s name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab.
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 Aholibamah, duke Elah, duke Pinon,
42duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar,
43duke Magdiel, duke Iram: these were the dukes of Edom, according to their habitations in the land of their possession. This is the Esau, the father of Edom.
