Genesis 36

36
CHAPTER 36
1Forsooth these be the generations of Esau; he is Edom.
2Esau took wives#36:2 Each of Esau’s three wives were known by two names: Adah, also known as Bashemath; Judith, also known as Oholibamah or Aholibamah; and another Bashemath, also known as Mahalath. of the daughters of Canaan; Adah, the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah, the son of Zibeon the Hivite;
3also Bashemath, the daughter of Ishmael, the sister of Nebajoth.
4And Adah childed Eliphaz; Bashemath childed Reuel;
5Oholibamah childed Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah. These were the sons of Esau, that were born to him in the land of Canaan.
6Soothly Esau took his wives, and his sons, and daughters, and each soul of his house, and his cattle, and sheep, and all things which he had in the land of Canaan, and went into another country, and departed from his brother Jacob;
7for they were full rich, and they might not dwell together, and the land of their pilgrimage sustained not them, for the multitude of flocks.
8And Esau dwelled in the hill of Seir; he is Edom.
9Forsooth these were the genera-tions of Esau, father of Edom, in the hill of Seir,
10and these were the names of his sons; Eliphaz, the son of Adah, wife of Esau, also Reuel, the son of Bashemath, wife of Esau.
11And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, and Gatam, and Kenaz.
12Forsooth Timna was the secondary wife of Eliphaz, Esau’s son, which Timna childed to him Amalek. These were the sons of Adah, Esau’s wife.
13Forsooth the sons of Reuel were Nahath, and Zerah, and Shammah, and Mizzah. These were the sons of Bashemath, Esau’s wife.
14And these were the sons of Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah, son of Zibeon, Esau’s wife, which she childed to him; Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah.
15These were dukes of the sons of Esau; the sons of Eliphaz, the first engendered of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz,
16duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Amalek. These were the sons of Eliphaz, in the land of Edom, and these were the sons of Adah.
17Also these were the sons of Reuel, Esau’s son; duke Nahath, duke Zerah, duke Shammah, duke Mizzah; forsooth these dukes were of Reuel, in the land of Edom. These were the sons of Bashemath, Esau’s wife.
18Forsooth these were the sons of Oholibamah, Esau’s wife; duke Jeush, duke Jaalam, duke Korah; these were [the] dukes of Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah, Esau’s wife.
19These were the sons of Esau, and these were dukes of them; he is Edom.
20These were the sons of Seir the Horite, inhabiters of the land; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah,
21and Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan; these dukes were of Horites, the son[s] of Seir, in the land of Edom.
22Forsooth the sons of Lotan were Hori, and Hemam; soothly the sister of Lotan was Timna.
23And these were the sons of Shobal; Alvan, and Manahath, and Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.
24And these were the sons of Zibeon; Ajah, and Anah; this is Ahan that found hot waters in the wilderness, when he kept the asses of Zibeon, his father;
25and he had a son, Dishon, and a daughter, Oholibamah.
26And these were the sons of Dishon; Hemdan, and Eshban, and Ithran, and Cheran.
27Also these were the sons of Ezer; Bilhan, and Zaavan, and Akan.
28And Dishon had sons; Uz, and Aran.
29These were the dukes of Horites; duke Lotan, duke Shobal, duke Zibeon, duke Anah,
30duke Dishon, duke Ezer, duke Dishan; these were the dukes of Horites, that were lords in the land of Seir.
31Forsooth [the] kings that reigned in the land of Edom, before that the sons of Israel had a king, were these;
32Bela, the son of Beor, and the name of his city was Dinhabah.
33Forsooth Bela died, and Jobab, the son of Zerah of Bozrah, reigned for him.
34And when Jobab was dead, Husham of the land of Temani reigned for him.
35And when he was dead, Hadad, the son of Bedad, that smote Midian in the land of Moab, and the name of his city was Avith, reigned for him.
36And when Hadad was dead, Samlah of Masrekah reigned for him.
37And when he was dead, Saul of the flood [of] Rehoboth reigned for him.
38And when he was dead, Baal-hanan, the son of Achbor, was successor into the realm.
39And when he was dead, Hadar reigned for him, and the name of the city of Hadar was Pau, and the name of his wife was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab.
40Therefore these were the names of the dukes of Esau, in their kindreds, and places, and names; duke Timnah, duke Alvah, duke Jetheth,
41duke Oholibamah, duke Elah, duke Pinon,
42duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar,
43duke Magdiel, duke Iram; these were the dukes of Edom, dwelling in the land of his lordship; he was Esau, the father of Idumeans.
