Esau's Family
1Esau, also known as Edom, had many descendants. 2#Gn 26.34. He married three Canaanite women: The first was Adah, the daughter of Elon the Hittite; the second was Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah and the granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite; 3#Gn 28.9. the third was Basemath, who was Ishmael's daughter and Nebaioth's sister.
4-5Esau and his three wives had five sons while in Canaan. Adah's son was Eliphaz; Basemath's son was Reuel; Oholibamah's three sons were Jeush, Jalam, and Korah.
6Esau took his children and wives, his relatives and servants, his animals and possessions he had acquired while in Canaan, and moved far from Jacob. 7He did this because the land was too crowded and could not support him and his brother with their flocks and herds. 8That's why Esau made his home in the hill country of Seir.
9-14Esau lived in the hill country of Seir and was the ancestor of the Edomites. Esau had three wives: Adah, Basemath, and Oholibamah. Here is a list of his descendants: Esau and Adah had a son named Eliphaz, whose sons were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz. Timna was the other wife#36.9-14 other wife: See the note at 22.24. of Esau's son Eliphaz, and she had a son named Amalek.
Esau and Basemath had a son named Reuel, whose sons were Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah.
Esau and Oholibamah had three sons: Jeush, Jalam, and Korah.
Chiefs and Leaders in Edom
15Esau and Adah's oldest son was Eliphaz, and the clans that descended from him were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz, 16Korah, Gatam, and Amalek. These and Esau's other descendants lived in the land of Edom.
17The clans that descended from Esau and Basemath's son Reuel were Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah.
18The clans that descended from Esau and Oholibamah the daughter of Anah were Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. 19All of these clans descended from Esau, who was known as Edom.
20Seir was from the Horite tribe that had lived in Edom before the time of Esau. The clans that had descended from him were Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 21Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan.
22Lotan's sons were Hori and Heman; his sister was Timna.
23Shobal's sons were Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.
24Zibeon's sons were Aiah and Anah—the same Anah who found an oasis#36.24 an oasis: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text. in the desert while taking the donkeys of his father out to pasture.
25Anah's children were Dishon and Oholibamah.
26Dishon's sons were Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran.
27Ezer's sons were Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan.
28Dishan's sons were Uz and Aran.
29The clans of the Horites were Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 30Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan, and they lived in the land of Seir.
31-39Before there were kings in Israel, the following kings ruled Edom one after another:
Bela son of Beor from Dinhabah;
Jobab son of Zerah from Bozrah;
Husham from the land of Teman;
Hadad son of Bedad from Avith (Bedad had defeated the Midianites in Moab);
Samlah from Masrekah;
Shaul from the city of Rehoboth on the Euphrates River;
Baalhanan son of Achbor;
Hadar from the city of Pau (his wife Mehetabel was the daughter of Matred and the granddaughter of Mezahab).
40The clans that descended from Esau took their names from their families and the places where they lived. They are Timna, Alvah, Jetheth, 41Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon, 42Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar, 43Magdiel, and Iram. These clans descended from Esau, who was known as Edom, the father of the Edomites. They took their names from the places where they settled.

The Descendants of Esau
(1 Chronicles 1.34-54)
1Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom. 2#Gen 26.34. Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholiba´mah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zib´e-on the Hivite; 3#Gen 28.9. and Bash´emath Ish´ma-el's daughter, sister of Neba´joth. 4And Adah bare to Esau El´iphaz, and Bash´emath bare Reu´el; 5and Aholiba´mah bare Je´ush, and Ja´alam, and Korah: these are the sons of Esau, which 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 the country from the face of his brother Jacob. 7For their riches were more than that they might dwell together; and the land wherein they were strangers could not bear them because of their cattle. 8Thus dwelt Esau in mount Se´ir: Esau is Edom.
9And these are the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites in mount Se´ir: 10these are the names of Esau's sons; El´iphaz the son of Adah the wife of Esau, Reu´el the son of Bash´emath the wife of Esau. 11And the sons of El´iphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, and Gatam, and Kenaz. 12And Timna was concubine to El´iphaz Esau's son; and she bare to El´iphaz Am´alek: these were the sons of Adah Esau's wife. 13And these are the sons of Reu´el; Nahath, and Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah: these were the sons of Bash´emath Esau's wife. 14And these were the sons of Aholiba´mah, the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zib´e-on, Esau's wife: and she bare to Esau Je´ush, and Ja´alam, and Korah.
15These were dukes of the sons of Esau: the sons of El´iphaz the firstborn son of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz, 16duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Am´alek: these are the dukes that came of El´iphaz in the land of Edom: these were the sons of Adah. 17And these are the sons of Reu´el Esau's son; duke Nahath, duke Zerah, duke Shammah, duke Mizzah: these are the dukes that came of Reu´el in the land of Edom: these are the sons of Bash´emath Esau's wife. 18And these are the sons of Aholiba´mah Esau's wife; duke Je´ush, duke Ja´alam, duke Korah: these were the dukes that came of Aholiba´mah the daughter of Anah, Esau's wife. 19These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their dukes.
20These are the sons of Se´ir the Horite, who inhabited the land; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zib´e-on, and Anah, 21and Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan: these are the dukes of the Horites, the children of Se´ir in the land of Edom. 22And the children of Lotan were Hori and Hemam; and Lotan's sister was Timna. 23And the children of Shobal were these; Alvan, and Man´ahath, and Ebal, Shepho, and Onam. 24And these are the children of Zib´e-on; both Ajah, and Anah: this was that Anah that found the mules in the wilderness, as he fed the asses of Zib´e-on his father. 25And the children of Anah were these; Dishon, and Aholiba´mah the daughter of Anah. 26And these are the children of Dishon; Hemdan, and Eshban, and Ithran, and Cheran. 27The children of Ezer are these; Bilhan, and Za´avan, and Akan. 28The children of Dishan are these; Uz, and Aran. 29These are the dukes that came of the Horites; duke Lotan, duke Shobal, duke Zib´e-on, duke Anah, 30duke Dishon, duke Ezer, duke Dishan: these are the dukes that came of Hori, among their dukes in the land of Se´ir.
31And these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom, before there reigned any king over the children of Israel. 32And Bela the son of Be´or reigned in Edom: and the name of his city was Din´habah. 33And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead. 34And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of Te´mani reigned in his stead. 35And Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad, who smote Mid´i-an in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Avith. 36And Hadad died, and Samlah of Masre´kah reigned in his stead. 37And Samlah died, and Saul of Reho´both by the river reigned in his stead. 38And Saul died, and Ba´al–ha´nan the son of Achbor reigned in his stead. 39And Ba´al–ha´nan the son of Achbor died, and Hadar reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Pa´u; and his wife's name was Mehet´abel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Me´zahab.
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 Aholiba´mah, duke Elah, duke Pinon, 42duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar, 43duke Mag´di-el, duke Iram: these be the dukes of Edom, according to their habitations in the land of their possession: he is Esau the father of the Edomites.
