Genesis 36

36
The Descendants of Esau
(1 Chronicles 1.34-37)
1These are the descendants of Esau, also called Edom. 2#Gn 26.34 Esau married Canaanite women: Adah, the daughter of Elon the Hittite; Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah son#36.2: Some ancient translations son; Hebrew daughter; or granddaughter. of Zibeon the Hivite; 3#Gn 28.9 and 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, along with all his livestock and all the possessions he had gotten 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: 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 Chronicles 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 Chronicles 1.43-54)
31-39Before there were any kings in Israel, the following kings ruled 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.

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.
