Genesis 36:8-9

Context
36:8 So Esau (also known as Edom) lived in the hill country of Seir. 1 

36:9 This is the account of Esau, the father 2  of the Edomites, in the hill country of Seir.

1 tn Traditionally “Mount Seir,” but in this case the expression בְּהַר שֵׂעִיר (bÿhar seir) refers to the hill country or highlands of Seir.

2 sn The term father in genealogical records needs to be carefully defined. It can refer to a literal father, a grandfather, a political overlord, or a founder.
