The Descendants of Esau
(1 Chr 1.34–37)
1These are the descendants of Esau, also called Edom. 2#Gen 26.34Esau married Canaanite women: Adah, the daughter of Elon the Hittite; Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah son#36.2; 36.14 Some ancient translations son; Hebrew daughter; or granddaughter. of Zibeon the Hivite; 3#Gen 28.9and Basemath, the daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth. 4Adah bore Eliphaz; Basemath bore Reuel; 5and Oholibamah bore Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. All these sons were born to Esau in the land of Canaan.
6Then Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, and all the people of his house, together with all his livestock and all the possessions he had acquired in the land of Canaan, and went away from his brother Jacob to another land. 7He left because the land where he and Jacob were living was not able to support them; they had too much livestock and could no longer stay together. 8So Esau lived in the hill country of Edom.
9These are the descendants of Esau, the ancestor of the Edomites. 10-13Esau's wife Adah bore him one son, Eliphaz, and Eliphaz had five sons: Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz. And by another wife, Timna, he had one more son, Amalek.
Esau's wife Basemath bore him one son, Reuel, and Reuel had four sons: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah.
14Esau's wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah son#36.14; 36.2 Some ancient translations son; Hebrew daughter; or granddaughter. of Zibeon, bore him three sons: Jeush, Jalam, and Korah.
15These are the tribes descended from Esau. Esau's first son Eliphaz was the ancestor of the following tribes: Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz, 16Korah, Gatam, and Amalek. These were all descendants of Esau's wife Adah.
17Esau's son Reuel was the ancestor of the following tribes: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These were all descendants of Esau's wife Basemath.
18The following tribes were descended from Esau by his wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah: Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. 19All these tribes were descended from Esau.
The Descendants of Seir
(1 Chr 1.38–42)
20-21The original inhabitants of the land of Edom were divided into tribes which traced their ancestry to the following descendants of Seir, a Horite: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan.
22Lotan was the ancestor of the clans of Hori and Heman. (Lotan had a sister named Timna.)
23Shobal was the ancestor of the clans of Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.
24Zibeon had two sons, Aiah and Anah. (This is the Anah who found the hot springs in the wilderness when he was taking care of his father's donkeys.) 25-26Anah was the father of Dishon, who was the ancestor of the clans of Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran. Anah also had a daughter named Oholibamah.
27Ezer was the ancestor of the clans of Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan.
28Dishan was the ancestor of the clans of Uz and Aran.
29-30These are the Horite tribes in the land of Edom: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan.
The Kings of Edom
(1 Chr 1.43–54)
31-39Before there were any kings in Israel, the following kings ruled over the land of Edom in succession:
Bela son of Beor from Dinhabah
Jobab son of Zerah from Bozrah
Husham from the region of Teman
Hadad son of Bedad from Avith (he defeated the Midianites in a battle in the country of Moab)
Samlah from Masrekah
Shaul from Rehoboth-on-the-River
Baal Hanan son of Achbor
Hadad from Pau (his wife was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred and granddaughter of Mezahab).
40-43Esau was the ancestor of the following Edomite tribes: Timna, Alvah, Jetheth, Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon, Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar, Magdiel, and Iram. The area where each of these tribes lived was known by the name of the tribe.

Esau’s Family
1This is the history of the family of Esau (Edom). 2Esau married women from the land of Canaan. His wives were Adah, the daughter of Elon the Hittite, Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah, the son of Zibeon the Hivite, and 3Basemath, Ishmael’s daughter, the sister of Nebaioth. 4Esau and Adah had a son named Eliphaz. Basemath had a son named Reuel. 5Oholibamah had three sons: Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These were Esau’s sons who were born in the land of Canaan.
6-8Jacob and Esau’s families became too big for the land in Canaan to support them all, so Esau moved away from his brother Jacob. He took his wives, sons, daughters, all his slaves, cattle and other animals, and everything else that he had gotten in Canaan and moved to the hill country of Seir.#36:6-8 Seir A mountain range in Edom. (Esau is also named Edom.)
9Esau is the father of the people of Edom. These are the names of Esau’s family living in the hill country of Seir:
10Esau and Adah’s son was Eliphaz. Esau and Basemath’s son was Reuel.
11Eliphaz had five sons: Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz.
12Eliphaz also had a slave woman named Timna. Timna and Eliphaz had a son named Amalek.
13Reuel had four sons: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah.
These were Esau’s grandsons from his wife Basemath.
14Esau’s third wife was Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah. (Anah was the son of Zibeon.) Esau and Oholibamah’s children were Jeush, Jalam, and Korah.
15These are the family groups that came from Esau:
Esau’s first son was Eliphaz. From Eliphaz came Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz, 16Korah, Gatam, and Amalek.
All these family groups came from Esau’s wife Adah.
17Esau’s son Reuel was the father of these families: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah.
All these families came from Esau’s wife Basemath.
18Esau’s wife Oholibamah, daughter of Anah, gave birth to Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These three men were the leaders of their families.
19They were all sons of Esau and leaders of the family groups of Edom.#36:19 Esau … Edom Two names for the man Esau and the country Edom.
20Seir, a Horite man, lived in Edom before Esau. These are the sons of Seir:
Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 21Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These sons were all Horite family leaders from Seir in Edom.
22Lotan was the father of Hori and Heman.#36:22 Heman Or “Homam.” (Timna was Lotan’s sister.)
23Shobal was the father of Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.
24Zibeon had two sons, Aiah and Anah. Anah is the man who found the springs in the desert while he was caring for his father’s donkeys.
25Anah was the father of Dishon and Oholibamah.
26Dishon had four sons. They were Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Keran.
27Ezer had three sons. They were Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan.
28Dishan had two sons. They were Uz and Aran.
29These are the names of the leaders of the Horite families: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 30Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These men were the leaders of the families that lived in the country of Seir.
31At that time there were kings in Edom. Edom had kings a long time before Israel did.
32Bela son of Beor was a king who ruled in Edom. He ruled over the city of Dinhabah.
33When Bela died, Jobab became king. Jobab was the son of Zerah from Bozrah.
34When Jobab died, Husham ruled. Husham was from the land of the Temanites.
35When Husham died, Hadad ruled that area. Hadad was the son of Bedad. (He was the man who defeated Midian in the country of Moab.) Hadad was from the city of Avith.
36When Hadad died, Samlah ruled that country. Samlah was from Masrekah.
37When Samlah died, Shaul ruled that area. Shaul was from Rehoboth by the River.
38When Shaul died, Baal Hanan ruled that country. Baal Hanan was the son of Acbor.
39When Baal Hanan died, Hadad#36:39 Hadad Or “Hadar.” ruled that country. Hadad was from the city of Pau. His wife’s name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred. (Mezahab was Matred’s father.)
40-43Esau was the father of these Edomite families:
Timna, Alvah, Jetheth, Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon, Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar, Magdiel, and Iram. Each of these families lived in an area that was called by the same name as their family.
