Esau’s descendants
1These are the descendants of Esau, that is, Edom. 2Esau married Canaanite women: Adah the daughter of the Hittite Elon; Oholibamah the daughter of Anah son of the Hittite Zibeon,#36.2 LXX, Sam, Syr; MT daughter 3and Basemath the daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth. 4Adah gave birth to Eliphaz for Esau, Basemath gave birth to Reuel, 5and Oholibamah gave birth to Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These are Esau’s sons born to him in the land of Canaan.
6Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, and everyone in his household, and his livestock, all of his animals, and all of the property he had acquired in the land of Canaan; and he moved away from the land of Canaan#36.6 LXX, Sam; MT to a land and from his brother Jacob. 7They had so many possessions that they couldn’t live together. The land where they lived as immigrants couldn’t support all of their livestock. 8So Esau, that is, Edom, lived in the mountains of Seir.
9These are the descendants of Esau, the ancestor of Edom, which lies in the mountains of Seir. 10These are the names of Edom’s sons: Eliphaz son of Esau’s wife Adah, and Reuel son of Esau’s wife Basemath. 11Eliphaz’s sons were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz. 12Timna was the secondary wife of Eliphaz, Esau’s son, and she gave birth to Amalek for Eliphaz. These are the sons of Esau’s wife Adah. 13These are Reuel’s sons: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These are the sons of Esau’s wife Basemath. 14These are the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah, Zibeon’s son:#36.14 LXX, Sam, Syr; MT daughter she gave birth to Esau, Jeush, Jalam, and Korah.
15These are the tribal chiefs from Esau’s sons. The sons of Eliphaz, Esau’s oldest son: Chief Teman, Chief Omar, Chief Zepho, Chief Kenaz, 16Chief Korah, Chief Gatam, and Chief Amalek. These are the tribal chiefs of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; they are Adah’s sons. 17These are the sons of Reuel, Esau’s son: Chief Nahath, Chief Zerah, Chief Shammah, and Chief Mizzah. These are the tribal chiefs of Reuel in the land of Edom; they are the sons of Esau’s wife Basemath. 18These are the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah: Chief Jeush, Chief Jalam, and Chief Korah. They are the tribal chiefs of Esau’s wife Oholibamah the daughter of Anah. 19These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their tribal chiefs.
20These are the sons of Seir, the Horite, who live in the land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 21Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These are the Horite tribal chiefs, Seir’s sons, in the land of Edom. 22Lotan’s sons are Hori and Heman, and Lotan’s sister was Timna. 23These are Shobal’s sons: Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho, and Onam. 24These are Zibeon’s sons: Aiah and Anah. Anah is the one who found water#36.24 Syr; Heb uncertain in the desert while pasturing his father Zibeon’s donkeys.
25These are Anah’s children: Dishon and Anah’s daughter Oholibamah. 26These are Dishon’s#36.26 Sam, Syr; MT Dishan’s sons: Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran. 27These are Ezer’s sons: Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan. 28These are Dishan’s sons: Uz and Aran. 29These are the Horite tribal chiefs: Chiefs Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 30Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These are the Horite tribal chiefs, listed according to their chiefs in the land of Seir.
31These are the kings who ruled in the land of Edom before a king ruled over the Israelites. 32Bela, Beor’s son, ruled in Edom; his city’s name was Dinhabah. 33After Bela died, Jobab son of Zerah from Bozrah became king. 34After Jobab died, Husham from the land of the Temanites became king. 35After Husham died, Hadad, Bedad’s son who defeated Midian in the countryside of Moab, became king; his city’s name was Avith. 36After Hadad died, Samlah from Masrekah became king. 37After Samlah died, Shaul from Rehoboth on the river became king. 38After Shaul died, Baal-hanan, Achbor’s son, became king. 39After Baal-hanan, Achbor’s son, died, Hadar became king; his city’s name was Pau and his wife’s name was Mehetabel the daughter of Matred and granddaughter of Me-zahab.
40These are the names of Esau’s tribal chiefs according to their families, their locations, and their names: Chief Timna, Chief Alvah, Chief Jetheth, 41Chief Oholibamah, Chief Elah, Chief Pinon, 42Chief Kenaz, Chief Teman, Chief Mibzar, 43Chief Magdiel, and Chief Iram.

The Origin of Edom
(1 Chronicles 1:35–54)
1This is the account of Esau (that is, Edom) and his descendants. 2Esau chose his wives from the women of Canaan: Adah, daughter of Elon the Hittite; Oholibamah, daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite; 3also Basemath, daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth. 4Adah gave birth to Eliphaz for Esau, and Basemath gave birth to Reuel. 5Oholibamah gave birth to Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These were the sons of Esau who were born in Canaan.
6Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, all the members of his household, his possessions, all his cattle, and everything he had accumulated in Canaan and went to another land away from his brother Jacob. 7He did this because they had too many possessions to live together. There wasn’t enough pastureland for all of their livestock. 8So Esau, who was also known as Edom, lived in the mountains of Seir.
