Genesis Chapter 36

Genesis 36

1Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.

2Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite;

3And Bashemath Ishmael’s daughter, sister of Nebajoth.

4And Adah bare to Esau Eliphaz; and Bashemath bare Reuel;

5And Aholibamah bare Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah: these are the sons of Esau, which were born unto him in the land of Canaan.

6And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the persons of his house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his substance, which he had got in the land of Canaan; and went into the country from the face of his brother Jacob.

7For their riches were more than that they might dwell together; and the land wherein they were strangers could not bear them because of their cattle.

8Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom.

9And these are the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites in mount Seir:

10These are the names of Esau’s sons; Eliphaz the son of Adah the wife of Esau, Reuel the son of Bashemath the wife of Esau.

11And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, and Gatam, and Kenaz.

12And Timna was concubine to Eliphaz Esau’s son; and she bare to Eliphaz Amalek: these were the sons of Adah Esau’s wife.

13And these are the sons of Reuel; Nahath, and Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah: these were the sons of Bashemath Esau’s wife.

14And these were the sons of Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon, Esau’s wife: and she bare to Esau Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah.

15These were dukes of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz the firstborn son of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz,

16Duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Amalek: these are the dukes that came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these were the sons of Adah.

17And these are the sons of Reuel Esau’s son; duke Nahath, duke Zerah, duke Shammah, duke Mizzah: these are the dukes that came of Reuel in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Bashemath Esau’s wife.

18And these are the sons of Aholibamah Esau’s wife; duke Jeush, duke Jaalam, duke Korah: these were the dukes that came of Aholibamah the daughter of Anah, Esau’s wife.

19These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their dukes.

20These are the sons of Seir the Horite, who inhabited the land; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah,

21And Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan: these are the dukes of the Horites, the children of Seir in the land of Edom.

22And the children of Lotan were Hori and Hemam; and Lotan’s sister was Timna.

23And the children of Shobal were these; Alvan, and Manahath, and Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.

24And these are the children of Zibeon; both Ajah, and Anah: this was that Anah that found the mules in the wilderness, as he fed the asses of Zibeon his father.

25And the children of Anah were these; Dishon, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah.

26And these are the children of Dishon; Hemdan, and Eshban, and Ithran, and Cheran.

27The children of Ezer are these; Bilhan, and Zaavan, and Akan.

28The children of Dishan are these; Uz, and Aran.

29These are the dukes that came of the Horites; duke Lotan, duke Shobal, duke Zibeon, duke Anah,

30Duke Dishon, duke Ezer, duke Dishan: these are the dukes that came of Hori, among their dukes in the land of Seir.

31And these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom, before there reigned any king over the children of Israel.

32And Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom: and the name of his city was Dinhabah.

33And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead.

34And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of Temani reigned in his stead.

35And Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad, who smote Midian in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Avith.

36And Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead.

37And Samlah died, and Saul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in his stead.

38And Saul died, and Baalhanan the son of Achbor reigned in his stead.

39And Baalhanan the son of Achbor died, and Hadar reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Pau; and his wife’s name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab.

40And these are the names of the dukes that came of Esau, according to their families, after their places, by their names; duke Timnah, duke Alvah, duke Jetheth,

41Duke Aholibamah, duke Elah, duke Pinon,

42Duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar,

43Duke Magdiel, duke Iram: these be the dukes of Edom, according to their habitations in the land of their possession: he is Esau the father of the Edomites.

  1. v1 Now these are the generations of Esau, who is E-dom.
    Esau the father of Edomites.

    Somethings are to beautiful to forget.
    JESUS Gosple, HIS Passion sacrificed HIs life for us..
    Let’s learn to tell HIS story. Tell our children of Calvary. JESUS died only once and He is Alive forever more.!!!
    As we keep the story alive we will never lose our identity. We have been chosen. We are different because of JESUS
    One Lord, One Faith,One Baptism. Repentance in JESUS NAME infilling of the Holy Ghost,
    Truth to save our souls.
    The Spirit will respond to The Word. Acts 10:44

    GOD IS OUR FATHER
    JESUS IS OUR FAMILY NAME

  2. Esau had a Promise on his life because of his dad. Though, Esau did not have the birthrite God still honored his father Isaac. Yet his blessing was only earthly and physical. He had family, wealth, and all the things one could want out of this life. Yet, no relationship with God. I’d rather be alone, and poor with God then have the whole world know my name and be without God.

    Esau was a celebrity among the Edomites. Jacob, who became Israel is a celebrity in eternity.

  3. Limited Resources

    The land on which Jacob and Esau are dependent is arid, which creates a challenge fore those who have livestock of finding water and food for grazing. Because Jacob has a wealth of livestock and Essau apparently has a fair share of livestock as well, they have to keep there livestock sufficently seperated so that the land and water can sustain their herds. **Sound familiar (Lot and Abraham)** Often a herd that has grown too large is spread over a bigger area. A base camp is set up, and various herders take portions of the herd elsewhere for a season, returning when the grazing in the original area is improved. So unlike Abraham and Lots complete seperation of ways, they (Jacob and Esau) would have their herders take the livestock “for a season” to graze to other fields and come back. They are together but they are unequally yoked.. If only they both would commit their lives & relationships to God.

  4. Esau had no claim to the promises God had made to his family, but the genealogy of his family is recorded in the bible. Imagine being honored with no promise, how much more we who have a promise should fill honored by God. Even when we don’t deserve, his promise will be honored.

  5. History repeats itself again….Abraham and Lot must separate and so we see Esau and Jacob separating because of their livestock. Life is a circle of events repeating itself generation through generation.

  6. EDOMITES

    1 Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.

    Esaus’ descendants are called Edomites, Edomites are the traditional enemies of Israel.

    It appears that even though Jacob and Esau made things right their descendants were not able to calm the conflict.

    Get OVER IT!

    BE Church

  7. This chapter offers hope. When God says he is going to bless it is not small; “For their riches were more than that they might dwell together; and the land wherein they were strangers could not bear them because of their cattle.” Blessings are more than money; Health, a Sound Mind, Family and Safe Harbor are a few we often take for granted. We are truly blessed, thank you Jesus!
