Genesis 36

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

2 Esau 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;

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

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

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

6 And 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.

7 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.

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

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

10 These 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.

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

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

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

14 And 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.

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

16 Duke 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.

17 And 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.

18 And 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.

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

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

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

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

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

24 And 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

35 And 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.

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

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

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

39 And 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.

40 And 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,

41 Duke Aholibamah, duke Elah, duke Pinon,

42 Duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar,

43 Duke 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. You see God keeps an account of his sons, and he keeps his promise he made to Abraham. One act of obedience, had changed everything and paved a way unto the New Covenant. But, thanks to Jesus Christ, many sons have been re-born, and been given a better covenant.

    “Glory to God”……………………………………………………………………..

  2. Everyone is important to God. Don’t let the enemy lie to you; God does know your name, He loves you, and He has a plan for your life!

    Jeremiah 29:11
    For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Eternal, “plans for peace, not evil, to give you a future and hope-never forget that. The Voice

    HE KNOWS MY NAME
    HE SEES MY HEART
    HE KNOWS EACH STEP I TAKE
    HE KNOWS MY DEEPEST THOUGHTS
    BEFORE I BREATHED MY FIRST BREATH
    MY LIFE WAS IN HIS HANDS
    HE HAD A PLAN FOR ME
    – Jeff and Sheri Easter

  3. This chapter is yet another account of one’s decendants. I guess you could say this was something very important to them, to God. These are familial accounts, but I see it in the spiritual sense too. How long is our decendants “list” POFW? I thank God for a Pastor that cares enough to have an account kept. The line of decendants here in the region of Fort Worth begins with our Pastor; “now these are the generations of POFW…” if you will. Who are we bringing to add to this list of descendants, how are we impacting our next generations?

    There’s an army rising up!

  4. MORE CHANGE

    7 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.

    Consider the BLESSINGS of the LORD. Esau was too BLESSED to remain the same. He needed CHANGE. I believe it is important for believers, ministries and churches alike to adjust their surroundings to support the BLESSINGS of GOD.

    There were so many cattle that there was not enough grass to feed them without CHANGE. We must allow GROWTH to necessitate MORE CHANGE. MORE classes, MORE bus routes, MORE ministries, MORE locations, MORE services.

    May our LORD JESUS, bless The POFW with MORE riches, spiritually, financially, numerically, and that the MORE will press us to adjust and adapt to MORE CHANGE.

    Thank you JESUS for Favor and Blessing.

    This chapter of the Bible gives the genealogy of Esau. It is not uncommon in scripture for the genealogy of both the godly seed and the ungodly seed’s family tree to be listed (Example Cain in Genesis). Esau blatantly disrespected his father and mother and went and married the daughter of Ishmael. The children of Esau would become bitter enemies of the Jewish nation. The following insert is from the internet.

    Esau was also known as Edom, the progenitor of the Edomites who were established to the south of the Israelites. They were an enemy nation of Israel.[23] The minor prophets, such as Obadiah, claim that the Edomites participated in the destruction of the First Temple by Nebuchadnezzar in 587 B.C. Exactly how the Edomites participated is not clear. Psalm 137 (“By the waters of Babylon”) suggests merely that Edom had encouraged the Babylonians: The Lord is asked to “remember against the Edomites the day of Jerusalem, how they said ‘raze it, raze it to its foundations'” (Psalm 137: 7). But the prophecy of Obadiah insists on the literal “violence done” by Esau “unto your brother Jacob” when the Edomites “entered the gate of my people…, looted his goods…, stood at the parting of the ways to cut off the fugitive,… delivered up his survivors on his day of distress” (Obadiah 10:13-14). By the intertestamental period, Edom had replaced Babylon as the nation that actually burned the Temple (“Thou hast also vowed to build thy temple, which the Edomites burned when Judah was laid waste by the Chaldees” [1 Esdras 45]).

  6. 7 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.

    The non-spiritual side:
    One of the many things I learned from my grandfather is cattle management. In this part of Texas, a healthy grass pasture can only support two cows per acre. This one acre needs rotation to recover. So, a one acre ranchette cannot support two cows. I cannot find how many cows Esau had but Jacobs gave him a full ranch as a gift in Chapter 23; “two hundred female goats and twenty male goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, thirty milk camels with their colts, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty female donkeys and ten foals.”

    The spiritual side:
    God had blessed Jacob to the extent that Esau had to move to support his flock. When God blesses the work of His people it will impact others. God moved Esau out of the land of Canaan and into the mountains. We are moving into the enemy’s territory. God will move their strong holds as we impact the community as the flock of POFW grows. Esau was hated by God: “Malachi 1:3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.” Jacob had Gods blessings. POFW has Gods blessings.

  7. 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.

  8. Esau 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;

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

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

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

    6 And 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.

    Esau followed the advice Isaac gave to Jacob and took wives of the Canaanite people as well (in the church.) However because of conflict he took everything he had acquired in Canaan and relocated to the another country.

    This is just like so many christians. They come upon conflict with a brother or sister in the church and instead of finding resolutions to that conflict they pick up their blessings and talents the Lord blessed them with and they either take them into the world to use for their own glory, or they run to another church.

    Conflict resolution is so easy, it’s called PRAYER. We need to learn how to work things out, get our feelings off our shoulders, be christians and stay where God places us in the Kingdom, using the talents and gifting He has given us to build up the Kingdom of God in the Church He brought us to.

  9. Disobedience & Rebellion

    43 Duke 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.

    Because of disobedience and rebellion Esau married the daughters of Canaan. The result the nation of Arabs Islam. The enemies of Israel and Christianity. What more proof do we need to see that any decision no matter how small could affect to the last of our generations.

  10. Genesis 36:6 Esau took his wives and sons and daughters and all the members of his household as well as his livestock and all his other animals and all the goods he had acquired in Canaan and moved to a land some distance from his brother Jacob. Their possessions were too great for them to remain together the land where they were staying could not support them both because of their livestock.

  11. What a mighty God we serve, that he knows each of us by name! As he sits on His throne He watches and keeps account of each of us!

  12. 19 These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their dukes.

    There are hundreds of names and begats in the bible, and for what? Some of the people recorded are just that, recorded. They have no story, no obvious significance besides being in the lineage of someone significant. To us they are just names, but to God they were important enough to record for all eternity.

    Every person matters.

  13. Every name recorded, this is why attendance is crucial. It keeps us accountable for for every soul that has attended the POFW.

  14. 8 Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom.

    The Bible doesn’t repeat itself just to do so, but rather to convey a very important message… With Esau and his descendants being the people of the land of Canaan, and Jacob’s being the children of Israel… WOW!

  15. Gen.36:1
    “NOW these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.”

    So thankful today for the Love, Mercy, and Grace of God.
    It doesn’t matter our family history, where we came from, or what our background is, JESUS loved and died for us ( Rom. 5:8), and not just for us, but for the sins of the whole world (1 John 2:2)

    All that matters is if our name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

  16. This chapter goes to show that God is keeping track of all. His Word can be passed from generation to generation. His Word will never pass away. Its up to us to keep his Word alive, and to teach our children and grandchildren the Word!

  17. The Covenant promises were passed. From Abraham to Isaac to Jacob and then to the sons of Jacob . Esau was rejected as far as the covenant is concerned but not forgotten.

  18. 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.

  19. 6 And 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.

    7 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.

  20. 40 And these are the names of the dukes that came of Esau, according to their families, after their places, by their names;
    God made a promise to Abraham, “I will make you a father of many nations” Genesis 17:4, and here we see but one small part of this huge promise being filled.

  21. From Generation to generation the word Fod still stand! God knows each of us by name, so dont let the enemy of our souls convince us that God that he doesnt know us, or what we do is in vain like keeping account of names that attend Pofw, or ISM.

  22. Genesis 36:12 (KJV Strong’s)

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

    Esau grandson Amalek is the father of the amalekites. These are the same peoples in 1 Samuel that King Saul was supposed to kill completely.

    Esau’s bitterness surely transferred generationally as the amalekites soon became mortal enemies of Israel.

    Distant cousins were adversaries because of one act of disobedience. Esau went to Ishmael because he married Canaanite women.

  23. “Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.” The word of God records Esau’s lineage and other information for all to see, which history also tells much more. Dear God, help me too mindful of what may come from my actions; “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”. “In GOD we trust”. “One Nation under GOD, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”. What a mighty GOD we serve! Thank GOD for his word. GOD bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in JESUS name, Amen!

  24. “This is the family tree of Esau, who is also called Edom.”
    ‭‭Genesis‬ ‭36:1‬ ‭MSG‬‬

    It’s great to know your lineage, where you’re from and what type of history is connected with your family.

  25. How awake is it to know that God knows who we are and knows us by are name don’t let the enemy or this would make you think your nothing or that you mean nothing or no one knows you cause we have King that knows us .

  26. 6 And 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.

    7 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.

    God had greatly multiplied to both of the sons of Jacob numerically and materially. God will be faithful in all his promises. Sometimes it might take a long journey but the Lord does not fail.

  27. The end of the chapter says “….They took their names from the places where they settled”. Taking on the name of what goes on around you can be very dangerous now a days. We live in a very different world now than before. We learned this past Sunday how your joy can be infectious and overflow onto someone else around you.

  28. v6 And Esau took his wives, and his sond, 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.

    It’s amazing how much we can accumulate when we live in one place very long.
    We should not accumulate too much that caters to our earthy nature, but instead build up our spiritual strength and down load our carnal concerns.

    “” Friendship of the world is enimty with GOD”
    James 4:4

    MORE ETERNAL TREASURES !!!

  29. 1 Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.

    Here we can see that Essau like Jacob recived a new name “Edom” it comes from the soup-scene giving over his inheritance. The word for soup (נזיד, nazid) comes from the verb זיד / זוד (zid/ zud), meaning to ‘boil’ in the literal sense, but figuratively to act proudly or presumptuously this verb has to do with arrogance or otherwise aggressive attitudes. It stands to reason that a Hebrew audience understood the aggression to be the literal meaning of this verb, and the meaning of to boil. When Esau walks in, tired from the field, he demands that Jacob gives him of ‘that red stuff, that red stuff.’ The word for ‘red stuff’ is אדם (adom); a word highly similar to the name Edom. The identical root אדם (‘dm) is the source for the name Adam. Another derivation is אדמה (adama), meaning field. Esau is a ‘man of the field’ and even though the word adama is not used but rather שדה (sadeh), also meaning field, the association is clear “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” What kind of name are we going to make for ourselves?

  30. Our Desires

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

    Perhaps the jealousy of Jacob was passed down through the generations into Israel when later they demanded a king because of the nations around them with kings. Prior to Israel having a king, Esau’s family had a king on the throne. We must be careful about what we allow to influence our desires and ideals and where we let them lead us.

    1 Samuel 12:6-13
    6 And Samuel said unto the people, It is the Lord that advanced Moses and Aaron, and that brought your fathers up out of the land of Egypt.

    7 Now therefore stand still, that I may reason with you before the Lord of all the righteous acts of the Lord, which he did to you and to your fathers.

    8 When Jacob was come into Egypt, and your fathers cried unto the Lord, then the Lord sent Moses and Aaron, which brought forth your fathers out of Egypt, and made them dwell in this place.

    9 And when they forgat the Lord their God, he sold them into the hand of Sisera, captain of the host of Hazor, and into the hand of the Philistines, and into the hand of the king of Moab, and they fought against them.

    10 And they cried unto the Lord, and said, We have sinned, because we have forsaken the Lord, and have served Baalim and Ashtaroth: but now deliver us out of the hand of our enemies, and we will serve thee.

    11 And the Lord sent Jerubbaal, and Bedan, and Jephthah, and Samuel, and delivered you out of the hand of your enemies on every side, and ye dwelled safe.

    12 And when ye saw that Nahash the king of the children of Ammon came against you, ye said unto me, Nay; but a king shall reign over us: when the Lord your God was your king.

    13 Now therefore behold the king whom ye have chosen, and whom ye have desired! and, behold, the Lord hath set a king over you.

  31. 7 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.

    Too much to be together! Sometimes your stuff can get in your sibling and your relationship. When you have other things indifferent from them, beside the obvious, it’s easy to not try and not cohabitat. If everyone had the same mind set, of family first, there would be so much issues in the family’s.
