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.

The Family Line of Esau
1Here is the story of the family line of Esau. Esau was also called Edom.
2Esau got his wives from among the women of Canaan. He married Adah, the daughter of Elon the Hittite. He also married Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah and the granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite. 3And he married Basemath, the daughter of Ishmael and the sister of Nebaioth.
4Adah had Eliphaz by Esau. Basemath had Reuel. 5Oholibamah had Jeush, Jalam and Korah. All of them were Esau’s sons. They were born in Canaan.
6Esau moved to a land far away from his brother Jacob. Esau took with him his wives, his sons and daughters, and all the people who lived with him. He also took his livestock and all his other animals. He took everything he had acquired in Canaan. 7Jacob and Esau owned so much that they couldn’t remain together. There wasn’t enough land for both of them. They had too much livestock. 8So Esau made his home in the hill country of Seir. Esau was also called Edom.
