¶ NOW these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.
2
Esau took his wives from among the daughters of Canaan: Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, Aholibamah the daughter of Anah, the son of Zibeon the Hivite;
3
And Bismath, Ishmael’s daughter, sister of Nebioth.
4
And Adah bore to Esau Eliphaz;
and Bismath bore Reuel;
5
And Aholibamah bore Jeush, Jaalan, and Korah;
these are the sons of Esau that were born to him in the land of Canaan.
6
And Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, and all the persons of his household, and all his cattle, and all the wealth which he had acquired in the land of Canaan;
and went to the land of Seir from the presence of his brother Jacob.
7
For their wealth was too great for them to dwell together;
and the land in which they sojourned could not sustain them because of their cattle.
8
Thus Esau dwelt in mount Seir;
Esau is Edom.
9
¶ And these are the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites in mount Seir;
10
These are the names of Esau’s sons: Eliphaz the son of Adah the wife of Esau, Reuel the son of Bismath the wife of Esau.
11
And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatham, and Kenaz.
12
And Timna was a concubine of Eliphaz, Esau’s son;
and she bore to Eliphaz Amalek.
These were the sons of Adah, Esau’s wife.
13
And these are the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah;
these were the sons of Bismath, Esau’s wife.
14
These are the sons of Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah the son of Zibeon, Esau’s wife;
and she bore to Esau Jeush, Jaalan, and Korah.
15
These are the chiefs of the sons of Esau, the sons of Eliphaz the first-born of Esau: chief Teman, chief Omar, chief Zepho, chief Kenaz,
16
Chief Gatham, chief Korah, and chief Amalek;
these are the chiefs that came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom;

19
These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their chiefs.
20
These are the sons of Seir the Horite, the inhabitants of the land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah,
21
Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan;
these are the chiefs of the Horites, the children of Seir in the land of Edom.
22
And the sons of Lotan were Hori and Heman;
and Lotan’s sister was Timna.
23
These are the sons of Shobal: Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shapar, and Oiam.

25
These are the children of Anah: Dishon and Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah.
26
These are the sons of Dishon: Hemran, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran.

30
Chief Dishon, chief Ezer, and chief Dishan;
these are the chiefs of the Horites, according to their chiefs in the land of Seir.
31
¶ And these are the kings who reigned in the land of Edom, before there reigned any king over the children of Israel:
32
Bela, the son of Beor, reigned in Edom;
and the name of his city was Dihab.
33
And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead.
34
And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of Teman reigned in his stead.
35
And Husham died, and Hadad, the son of Bedad, who smote the Midianites in the fields of Moab, reigned in his stead;
and the name of his city was Gevith.
36
And Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead.
37
And Samlah died, and Saul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in his stead.
38
And Saul died, and Baal-hanan, the son of Abcor, reigned in his stead.
39
And Baal-hanan, the son of Abcor died, and Hadad reigned in his stead;
