1 tn Perhaps this is the Timna mentioned in v. 36.

2 tc Some medieval Hebrew mss and a few LXX mss read “Alvan” (see Gen 36:23).

3 tc A few medieval Hebrew mss read “Shepho” (see Gen 36:23).

4 tn Heb “sons.” The Hebrew text has the plural, but only one son is listed. For stylistic reasons the singular “son” was used in the translation.

5 tn The parallel geneaology in Gen 36:26 has the variant spelling “Hemdan.” Some English versions follow the variant spelling here (e.g., NAB, NIV, NCV, CEV, NLT).

6 tn The parallel geneaology in Gen 36:27 has the variant spelling “Akan.” Among English versions that use the variant spelling here are NIV, NCV, NLT.

7 tc The MT reads “Dishon” here, but this should be emended to “Dishan.” See the list in v. 38 and Gen 36:28.
