36These are the descendants of Esau (that is, Edom). 2Esau took his wives from the Canaanites: Adah daughter of Elon the Hittite, Oholibamah daughter of Anah son* of Zibeon the Hivite, 3and Basemath, Ishmaels daughter, sister of Nebaioth. 4Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau; Basemath bore Reuel; 5and Oholibamah bore Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These are the sons of Esau who were born to him in the land of Canaan.
6 Then Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, and all the members of his household, his cattle, all his livestock, and all the property he had acquired in the land of Canaan; and he moved to a land some distance from his brother Jacob. 7For their possessions were too great for them to live together; the land where they were living could not support them because of their livestock. 8So Esau settled in the hill country of Seir; Esau is Edom.
9 These are the descendants of Esau, ancestor of the Edomites, in the hill country of Seir. 10These are the names of Esaus sons: Eliphaz, son of Adah the wife of Esau; Reuel, the son of Esaus wife Basemath. 11The sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz. 12(Timna was a concubine of Eliphaz, Esaus son; she bore Amalek to Eliphaz.) These were the sons of Adah, Esaus wife. 13These were the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These were the sons of Esaus wife Basemath. 14These were the sons of Esaus wife Oholibamah, daughter of Anah son* of Zibeon: she bore to Esau Jeush, Jalam, and Korah.
15 These are the clans* of the sons of Esau. The sons of Eliphaz the firstborn of Esau: the clans* Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz, 16Korah, Gatam, and Amalek; these are the clans* of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; they are the sons of Adah. 17These are the sons of Esaus son Reuel: the clans* Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah; these are the clans* of Reuel in the land of Edom; they are the sons of Esaus wife Basemath. 18These are the sons of Esaus wife Oholibamah: the clans* Jeush, Jalam, and Korah; these are the clans* born of Esaus wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah. 19These are the sons of Esau (that is, Edom), and these are their clans.*
20 These are the sons of Seir the Horite, the inhabitants of the land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 21Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan; these are the clans* of the Horites, the sons of Seir in the land of Edom. 22The sons of Lotan were Hori and Heman; and Lotans sister was Timna. 23These are the sons of Shobal: Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho, and Onam. 24These are the sons of Zibeon: Aiah and Anah; he is the Anah who found the springs* in the wilderness, as he pastured the donkeys of his father Zibeon. 25These are the children of Anah: Dishon and Oholibamah daughter of Anah. 26These are the sons of Dishon: Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran. 27These are the sons of Ezer: Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan. 28These are the sons of Dishan: Uz and Aran. 29These are the clans* of the Horites: the clans* Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 30Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan; these are the clans* of the Horites, clan by clan* in the land of Seir.
31 These are the kings who reigned in the land of Edom, before any king reigned over the Israelites. 32Bela son of Beor reigned in Edom, the name of his city being Dinhabah. 33Bela died, and Jobab son of Zerah of Bozrah succeeded him as king. 34Jobab died, and Husham of the land of the Temanites succeeded him as king. 35Husham died, and Hadad son of Bedad, who defeated Midian in the country of Moab, succeeded him as king, the name of his city being Avith. 36Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah succeeded him as king. 37Samlah died, and Shaul of Rehoboth on the Euphrates succeeded him as king. 38Shaul died, and Baal-hanan son of Achbor succeeded him as king. 39Baal-hanan son of Achbor died, and Hadar succeeded him as king, the name of his city being Pau; his wifes name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, daughter of Me-zahab.
40 These are the names of the clans* of Esau, according to their families and their localities by their names: the clans* Timna, Alvah, Jetheth, 41Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon, 42Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar, 43Magdiel, and Iram; these are the clans* of Edom (that is, Esau, the father of Edom), according to their settlements in the land that they held.
