Genesis 36

Previous Chapter | Next Chapter

 1 Now this is the account of the descendants of Esau, who is Edom.

 2 Esau took wives from the daughters of Canaan: Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite,

 3 And Bashemath Ishmael's daughter, sister of Nebajoth.

 4 And Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau; Bashemath bore Reuel;

 5 And Aholibamah bore Jeush, Jaalam, and Korah. These are the sons of Esau who were born to him in the land of Canaan.

 6 Now Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, and all the people of his household, his cattle, all his beasts, and all his possessions, which he had gained in the land of Canaan, and went into the country away from his brother Jacob.

 7 For their property was too great for them to remain together; the land in which they were strangers could not support them both because of their livestock.

 8 Thus Esau dwelled in mount Seir; Esau is Edom.

 9 And this is the account of the descendants of Esau the father of the Edomites in mount Seir.

 10 These are the names of Esau's sons: Eliphaz the son of Adah the wife of Esau, Reuel the son of Bashemath, the wife of Esau.

 11 And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz.

 12 Timna was a concubine of Eliphaz, Esau's son; and she bore Amalek to Eliphaz. These were the sons of Adah, Esau's wife.

 13 These are the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These were the sons of Bashemath, Esau's wife.

 14 And these were the sons of Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon, Esau's wife. She bore to Esau: Jeush, Jaalam, and Korah.

 15 These were chiefs of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz the firstborn son of Esau: Chief Teman, Chief Omar, Chief Zepho, Chief Kenaz,

 16 Chief Korah, Chiefe Gatam, and Chief Amalek: these are the chiefs who came from Eliphaz in the land of Edom. These were the sons of Adah.

 17 And these are the sons of Reuel, Esau's son: Chief Nahath, Chief Zerah, Chief Shammah, Chief Mizzah. These are the chiefs that came from Reuel in the land of Edom. These are the sons of Bashemath, Esau's wife.

 18 These are the sons of Aholibamah Esau's wife: Chief Jeush, Chief Jaalam, Chief Korah. These were the chiefs that came of Aholibamah the daughter of Anah, Esau's wife.

 19 These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their chiefs.

 20 These are the sons of Seir the Horite, who inhabited the land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah,

 21 And Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These are the chiefs of the Horites, the children of Seir in the land of Edom.

 22 And the children of Lotan were Hori and Hemam; and Lotan's sister was Timna.

 23 And the children of Shobal were these: Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.

 24 And these are the children of Zibeon: both Ajah, and Anah. This was that Anah who found the mules in the wilderness as he fed the donkeys of Zibeon his father.

 25 And the children of Anah were these: Dishon, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah.

 26 And these are the children of Dishon: Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran.

 27 The children of Ezer are these: Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan.

 28 The children of Dishan are these: Uz, and Aran.

 29 These are the chiefs who came from the Horites; Chief Lotan, Chief Shobal, Chief Zibeon, Chief Anah,

 30 Chief Dishon, Chief Ezer, and Chief Dishan. These are the chiefs who came from Hori, among their chiefs in the land of Seir.

 31 These are the kings who reigned in the land of Edom, before any king reigned over the children of Israel:

 32  Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom. And the name of his city was Dinhabah.

 33 Now Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead.

 34 And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of Temani reigned in his stead.

 35 And Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad, who smote Midian in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead. The name of his city was Avith.

 36 And Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead.

 37 And Samlah died, and Saul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in his stead.

 38 And Saul died, and Baalhanan the son of Achbor reigned in his stead.

 39 And Baalhanan the son of Achbor died, and Hadar reigned in his stead. The name of his city was Pau; and his wife's name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab.

 40 And these are the names of the chiefs that came from Esau, according to their families and their places of residence, by their names: Chief Timnah, Chief Alvah, Chief Jetheth,

 41 Chief Aholibamah, Chief Elah, Chief Pinon,

 42 Chief Kenaz, Chiefe Teman, Chief Mibzar,

 43 Chief Magdiel, and Chief Iram. These are the chiefs of Edom, according to their habitations in the land of their possession. Esau was the father of the Edomites.
