Genesis 36
New Heart English Bible
1Now these are the generations of Esau (that is, Edom).

2Esau took his wives from the daughters of Canaan: Adah the daughter of Elon, the Hethite; and Oholibamah the daughter of Anah, the daughter of Zibeon, the Hivite; 3and Basemath, Ishmael's daughter, sister of Nebaioth. 4Adah bore to Esau Eliphaz. Basemath bore Reuel. 5Oholibamah bore Jeush, and Jalam, and Korah. These are the sons of Esau, who were born to him in the land of Canaan.

6Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, and all the members of his household, with his livestock, all his animals, and all his possessions, which he had gathered in the land of Canaan, and went out from the land of Canaan away from the presence of his brother Jacob. 7For their possessions were too great for them to remain together, and the land in which they were traveling could not support them because of their livestock. 8And Esau (also known as Edom) settled in the hill country of Seir.

9These are the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites in the hill country of Seir: 10these are the names of Esau's sons: Eliphaz, the son of Adah, the wife of Esau; and Reuel, the son of Basemath, the wife of Esau. 11The sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, and Gatam, and Kenaz. 12Timna was the secondary wife to Eliphaz, Esau?s son; and she bore to Eliphaz Amalek. These are the sons of Adah, Esau?s wife. 13These are the sons of Reuel: Nahath, and Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These were the sons of Basemath, Esau?s wife. 14These were the sons of Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah, the daughter of Zibeon, Esau?s wife: she bore to Esau Jeush, and Jalam, and Korah.

15These are the chiefs of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz the firstborn of Esau: chief Teman, chief Omar, chief Zepho, chief Kenaz, 16chief Korah, chief Gatam, chief Amalek: these are the chiefs who came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Adah. 17These are the sons of Reuel, Esau's son: chief Nahath, chief Zerah, chief Shammah, chief Mizzah: these are the chiefs of Reuel in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Basemath, Esau's wife. 18These are the sons of Oholibamah, Esau's wife: chief Jeush, chief Jalam, chief Korah: these are the chiefs who came of Oholibamah the daughter of Anah, Esau's wife. 19These are the sons of Esau (also known as Edom), and these are their chiefs.

20These are the sons of Seir the Horite, the inhabitants of the land: Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah, 21and Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan. These are the chiefs of the Horites, the sons of Seir in the land of Edom. 22The sons of Lotan were Hori and Hemam. Lotan?s sister was Timna. 23These are the sons of Shobal: Alvan, and Manahath, and Ebal, Shepho, and Onam. 24These are the sons of Zibeon: Aiah and Anah. This is the Anah who found the hot springs in the desert as he pastured the donkeys of his father Zibeon. 25These are the children of Anah: Dishon, and Oholibamah the daughter of Anah. 26These are the children of Dishon: Hemdan, and Eshban, and Ithran, and Keran. 27These are the sons of Ezer: Bilhan, and Zaavan, and Akan. 28These are the sons of Dishan: Uz and Aran. 29These are the chiefs of the Horites: chief Lotan, chief Shobal, chief Zibeon, chief Anah, 30chief Dishon, chief Ezer, and chief Dishan: these are the chiefs who came of the Horites, according to their chiefs in the land of Seir.

31These are the kings who reigned in the land of Edom, before any king reigned over the people of Israel. 32Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom. The name of his city was Dinhabah. 33When Bela died, and Jobab, the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his place. 34And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of the Temanites reigned in his place. 35And Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad who struck Midian in the field of Moab reigned in his place. The name of his city was Avith. 36And Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his place. 37And Samlah died, and Shaul of Rehoboth-on-the-River reigned in his place. 38And Shaul died, and Baal Hanan the son of Achbor reigned in his place. 39And Baal Hanan the son of Achbor died, and Hadad reigned in his place. The name of his city was Pau. His wife?s name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Me-Zahab.

40These are the names of the chiefs who came from Esau, according to their families, according to their places, and by their names: chief Timna, chief Alvah, 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, according to their settlements in the land they possessed. This is Esau the father of Edom.
