Genesis 36:12 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Timna was concubine to Eliphaz - As Timna was sister to Lotan the Horite, Genesis 36:22, we see how the family of Esau and the Horites got intermixed. This might give the sons of Esau a pretext to seize the land, and expel the ancient inhabitants, as we find they did, Deuteronomy 2:12.
