Edom’s Rulers

43 Now these were the kings who ruled in the land of Edom, before any king ruled over Bnei-Yisrael:

Bela the son of Beor, the name of his city was Dinhabah.

44 When Bela died, Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah ruled in his place.

45 When Jobab died, Husham of the land of the Temanites ruled in his place.

46 When Husham died, Hadad the son of Bedad, who defeated Midian in the country of Moab, ruled in his place—the name of his city was Avith.

47 When Hadad died, Samlah of Masrekah ruled in his place.

48 When Samlah died, Shaul of Rehoboth-on-the-River ruled in his place.

49 When Shaul died, Baal-Hanan the son of Achbor ruled in his place.

50 When Baal-Hanan died, Hadad ruled in his place—the name of his city was Pai, and his wife’s name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Me-zahab. 51 Then Hadad died.

So the tribal chiefs of Edom were: chief Timna, chief Alvah, chief Jetheth 52 chief Oholibamah, chief Elah, chief Pinon 53 chief Kenaz, chief Teman, chief Mibzar, 54 chief Magdiel, and chief Iram. These were the chiefs of Edom.
