King James Bible
For 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.
Darby Bible Translation
For their property was too great for them to dwell together, and the land where they were sojourners could not bear them, because of their cattle.
World English Bible

Genesis 36:7 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Esau took his wives, etc. - So it appears that Esau and Jacob dwelt together in Canaan, whither the former removed from Seir, probably soon after the return of Jacob. That they were on the most friendly footing this sufficiently proves; and Esau shows the same dignified conduct as on other occasions, in leaving Canaan to Jacob, and returning again to Mount Seir; certainly a much less fruitful region than that which he now in behalf of his brother voluntarily abandoned.

By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise.
But the land could not support them while they stayed together, for their possessions were so great that they were not able to stay together.
The whole land of Canaan, where you now reside as a foreigner, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God."
1 Chronicles 29:15
We are foreigners and strangers in your sight, as were all our ancestors. Our days on earth are like a shadow, without hope.
"Hear my prayer, LORD, listen to my cry for help; do not be deaf to my weeping. I dwell with you as a foreigner, a stranger, as all my ancestors were.
Also you must never build houses, sow seed or plant vineyards; you must never have any of these things, but must always live in tents. Then you will live a long time in the land where you are nomads.'
