Genesis 36New Life Version (NLV)

The Families of Esau

36 These are the children of Esau (that is, Edom).

Esau took his wives from the women of Canaan: Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah the daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite, and Ishmael’s daughter Basemath, the sister of Nebaioth. Adah gave birth to Esau’s son Eliphaz. Basemath gave birth to Reuel. And Oholibamah gave birth to Jeush, Jalam and Korah. These are the sons who were born to Esau in the land of Canaan.

Then Esau took his wives and sons and daughters and all those of his house, and his flocks and cattle, and all his riches from the land of Canaan. And he went to another land away from his brother Jacob. For they owned too much for them to live together. The land where they were staying could not keep them alive, because of all their animals. So Esau lived in the hill country of Seir. Esau is Edom.

These are the children, and their children, of Esau the father of the Edomites in the hill country of Seir. 10 These are the names of Esau’s sons: Eliphaz the son of Esau’s wife Adah, and Reuel the son of Esau’s wife Basemath. 11 The sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz. 12 Timna acted as the wife of Esau’s son Eliphaz. And she gave birth to Eliphaz’s son Amalek. These are the sons of Esau’s wife Adah. 13 These are the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. They are the sons of Esau’s wife Basemath.

14 These are the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah, the daughter of Zibeon: She gave birth to Esau’s sons, Jeush, Jalam and Korah.

15 These are the leaders of the sons of Esau. The sons of Esau’s first-born, Eliphaz, are leaders Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz, 16 Korah, Gatam, and Amalek. These are the leaders of Eliphaz in the land of Edom. They are the sons of Adah.

17 These are the sons of Esau’s son Reuel: Leaders Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These are the leaders of Reuel in the land of Edom. They are the sons of Esau’s wife Basemath.

18 These are the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah: Leaders Jeush, Jalam and Korah. These are the leaders of Esau’s wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah. 19 These are the sons of Esau (that is, Edom), and these are their leaders.

20 These are the sons of Seir the Horite, who lived in that land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 21 Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These are the leaders of the Horites, the sons of Seir in the land of Edom.

22 The sons of Lotan are Hori and Hemam. Lotan’s sister was Timna. 23 The sons of Shobal are Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho, and Onam. 24 The sons of Zibeon are Aiah and Anah. He is the Anah who found the hot water well in the desert when he was caring for the donkeys of his father Zibeon. 25 The children of Anah are Dishon and Oholibamah, Anah’s daughter. 26 The sons of Dishon are Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran. 27 The sons of Ezer are Bilhan, Zaavan and Akan. 28 And the sons of Dishan are Uz and Aran.

29 These are the leaders of the Horites: Leaders Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 30 Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These are the leaders of the Horites, by their families in the land of Seir.

The Kings of Edom

31 These are the kings who ruled in the land of Edom before any king ruled the sons of Israel. 32 Bela the son of Beor ruled in Edom. The name of his city was Dinhabah. 33 Then Bela died. And Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah became king in his place. 34 Then Jobab died. And Husham of the land of the Temanites became king in his place. 35 Then Husham died. And Hadad the son of Bedad, who won the fight against Midian in the field of Moab, became king in his place. The name of his city was Avith. 36 Then Hadad died. And Samlah of Masrekah became king in his place. 37 Then Samlah died. And Shaul of Rehoboth on the Euphrates River became king in his place. 38 Then Shaul died. And Achbor’s son Baalhanan became king in his place. 39 Then Achbor’s son died. And Hadar became king in his place. The name of his city was Pau. His wife’s name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, daughter of Mezahab.

40 These are the names of the leaders of Esau, by family, place and name: Leaders Timna, Alvah, Jetheth, 41 Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon, 42 Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar, 43 Magdiel, and Iram. These are the leaders of Edom (that is, Esau, the father of the Edomites), who lived in the land that belonged to them.
