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.

Esau Moves
1Now these are the records of the generations of Esau (that is, Edom).
2Esau took his wives from the daughters of Canaan: Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah the daughter of Anah, the #Lit daughter; LXX son (referring to Anah)granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite; 3also Basemath, Ishmael’s daughter, the sister of Nebaioth. 4Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, and Basemath gave birth to Reuel, 5and Oholibamah gave birth to Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These are the sons of Esau who were born to him in the land of Canaan.
6Then Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, and all #Lit the souls of his househis household, and his livestock and all his cattle, and all his property which he had acquired in the land of Canaan, and went to another land away from his brother Jacob. 7For their possessions had become too great for them to live together, and the land where they resided could not support them because of their livestock. 8So Esau lived in the hill country of Seir; Esau is Edom.
Descendants of Esau
9These then are the records of the generations of Esau the father of #Lit Edomthe Edomites in the hill country of Seir. 10These are the names of Esau’s sons: Eliphaz the son of Esau’s wife Adah, and Reuel the son of Esau’s wife Basemath. 11The sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, #In 1 Chr 1:36, ZephiZepho, Gatam, and Kenaz. 12Timna was a concubine of Esau’s son Eliphaz, and she bore Amalek to Eliphaz. These are the sons of Esau’s wife Adah. 13And these are the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These were the sons of Esau’s wife Basemath. 14And these were the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah, the #See note v 2granddaughter of Zibeon: #Lit and sheshe bore to Esau Jeush, Jalam, and Korah.
15These are the chiefs of the sons of Esau. The sons of Eliphaz, the firstborn of Esau, are chief Teman, chief Omar, chief Zepho, chief Kenaz, 16chief Korah, chief Gatam, and chief Amalek. These are the chiefs #Lit of Eliphazdescended from Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Adah. 17And these are the sons of Reuel, Esau’s son: chief Nahath, chief Zerah, chief Shammah, and chief Mizzah. These are the chiefs #Lit of Reueldescended from Reuel in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Esau’s wife Basemath. 18And these are the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah: chief Jeush, chief Jalam, and chief Korah. These are the chiefs #Lit of Oholibamah, Esau’s wifedescended from Esau’s wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah. 19These are the sons of Esau (that is, Edom), and these are their chiefs.
20These are the sons of Seir the Horite, the inhabitants of the land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 21Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These are the chiefs #Lit of the Horitesdescended from the Horites, the sons of Seir in the land of Edom. 22And the sons of Lotan were Hori and #In 1 Chr 1:39, HomamHemam; and Lotan’s sister was Timna. 23And these are the sons of Shobal: #In 1 Chr 1:40, AlianAlvan, Manahath, Ebal, #In 1 Chr 1:40, ShephiShepho, and Onam. 24And these are the sons of Zibeon: Aiah and Anah—he is the Anah who found the hot springs in the wilderness when he was pasturing the donkeys of his father Zibeon. 25And these are the children of Anah: Dishon, and Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah. 26And these are the sons of #Heb DishanDishon: #In 1 Chr 1:41, HamranHemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran. 27These are the sons of Ezer: Bilhan, Zaavan, and #In 1 Chr 1:42, JaakanAkan. 28These are the sons of Dishan: Uz and Aran. 29These are the chiefs #Lit of the Horitesdescended from the Horites: chief Lotan, chief Shobal, chief Zibeon, chief Anah, 30chief Dishon, chief Ezer, and chief Dishan. These are the chiefs #Lit of the Horitesdescended from the Horites, according to their various chiefs in the land of Seir.
31Now these are the kings who reigned in the land of Edom before any king reigned over the sons of Israel. 32#Lit And BelaBela the son of Beor reigned in Edom, and the name of his city was Dinhabah. 33Then Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah became king in his place. 34Then Jobab died, and Husham of the land of the Temanites became king in his place. 35Then Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad, who #Or struckdefeated Midian in the field of Moab, became king in his place; and the name of his city was Avith. 36Then Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah became king in his place. 37Then Samlah died, and Shaul of Rehoboth on the Euphrates River became king in his place. 38Then Shaul died, and Baal-hanan the son of Achbor became king in his place. 39Then Baal-hanan the son of Achbor died, and #In 1 Chr 1:50, HadadHadar became king in his place; and the name of his city was #In 1 Chr 1:50, PaiPau; and his wife’s name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, daughter of Mezahab.
40Now these are the names of the chiefs #Lit of Esaudescended from Esau, according to their families and their localities, by their names: chief Timna, chief #In 1 Chr 1:51, AliahAlvah, chief Jetheth, 41chief Oholibamah, chief Elah, chief Pinon, 42chief Kenaz, chief Teman, chief Mibzar, 43chief Magdiel, and chief Iram. These are the chiefs of Edom (that is, Esau, the father of #Heb Edomthe Edomites), according to their settlements in the land of their possession.
