1The family history of Esau (Edom). 2Esau married women from the land of Canaan. Esau’s 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. 5And Oholibamah had three sons: Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. Those were Esau’s sons that 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. Esau took his wives, sons, daughters, all his slaves, cows and other animals, and everything else that he got in Canaan and moved to the hill country of Seir. (Esau is also named Edom—˻and this is another name for the country Seir˼.) 9Esau is the father of the people of Edom. These are the names of Esau’s family living in the hill country of Seir ˻(Edom)˼: 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 woman servant named Timna. Timna and Eliphaz had a son named Amalek. 13Reuel had four sons: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. Those 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, Korah. 15These are the family groups that came from Esau ˻(Edom)˼: Esau’s first son was Eliphaz. From Eliphaz came: Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz, 16Korah, Gatam, and Amalek. All those family groups came from Esau’s wife Adah. 17Esau’s son Reuel was the father of these families: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. All those families came from Esau’s wife Basemath. 18Esau’s wife Oholibamah, daughter of Anah, gave birth to Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. Those three men were the fathers of their families. 19Those men were all family leaders from Esau (Edom). 20Seir, a Horite man, lived in Edom before Esau. These are the sons of Seir: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 21Dishon, Ezer, Dishan. Those sons were all Horite family leaders from Seir in Edom. 22Lotan was the father of Hori and Heman. ˻(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 hot springs in the mountains 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. Those men were the leaders of the families that lived in the country of Seir ˻(Edom). 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 Temanite people. 35When Husham died, Hadad ruled that area. Hadad was the son of Bedad. (Hadad 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 on the Euphrates River. 38When Shaul died, Baal Hanan ruled that country. Baal Hanan was the son of Acbor. 39When Baal Hanan died, Hadad ruled that country. Hadad was from the city of Pau. Hadad’s wife’s name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred. (Mezahab was Matred’s father.) 40- 43Esau was the father of the 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.
