So Jacob returned to his father, Isaac, in Mamre, which is near Kiriath-
arba (now called Hebron), where Abraham and Isaac had both lived as
foreigners. Isaac lived for 180 years. Then he breathed his last and died
at a ripe old age, joining his ancestors in death. And his sons, Esau and
Jacob, buried him.
This is the account of the descendants of Esau (also known as Edom).
Esau married two young women from Canaan: Adah, the daughter of Elon
the Hittite; and Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah and granddaughter
of Zibeon the Hivite. He also married his cousin Basemath, who was the
daughter of Ishmael and the sister of Nebaioth. Adah gave birth to a son
named Eliphaz for Esau. Basemath gave birth to a son named Reuel. Ohol
ibamah gave birth to sons named Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. All these sons
were born to Esau in the land of Canaan.
Esau took his wives, his children, and his entire household, along with
his livestock and c attle—all the wealth he had acquired in the land of
Canaan—and moved away from his brother, Jacob. There was not enough
land to support them both because of all the livestock and possessions
they had acquired. So Esau (also known as Edom) settled in the hill country of Seir.
This is the account of Esau’s descendants, the Edomites, who lived in the
hill country of Seir.
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.
The descendants of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and
Kenaz. Timna, the concubine of Esau’s son Eliphaz, gave birth to a son
named Amalek. These are the descendants of Esau’s wife Adah.
The descendants of Reuel were Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah.
These are the descendants of Esau’s wife Basemath.
