Genesis 36:2-14

Context

36:2 Esau took his wives from the Canaanites: 1  Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah the daughter of Anah and granddaughter 2  of Zibeon the Hivite, 36:3 in addition to Basemath the daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth.

36:4 Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, Basemath bore Reuel, 36:5 and Oholibamah bore Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These were the sons of Esau who were born to him in the land of Canaan.

36:6 Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, all the people in his household, his livestock, his animals, and all his possessions which he had acquired in the land of Canaan and went to a land some distance away from 3  Jacob his brother 36:7 because they had too many possessions to be able to stay together and the land where they had settled 4  was not able to support them because of their livestock. 36:8 So Esau (also known as Edom) lived in the hill country of Seir. 5 

36:9 This is the account of Esau, the father 6  of the Edomites, in the hill country of Seir.

36:10 These were the names of Esau’s sons:

Eliphaz, the son of Esau’s wife Adah, and Reuel, the son of Esau’s wife Basemath.

36:11 The sons of Eliphaz were:

Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz.

36:12 Timna, a concubine of Esau’s son Eliphaz, bore Amalek to Eliphaz. These were the sons 7  of Esau’s wife Adah.

36:13 These were the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These were the sons 8  of Esau’s wife Basemath.

36:14 These were the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah the daughter of Anah and granddaughter 9  of Zibeon: She bore Jeush, Jalam, and Korah to Esau.
