*Genesis 36:1-43 (Saturday)*
The Descendants of Esau
36:1 What follows is the account of Esau (also known as Edom).
36:2 Esau took his wives from the Canaanites: Adah the daughter of Elon
the Hittite, and Oholibamah the daughter of Anah and granddaughter of
Zibeon the Hivite, 36:3 in addition to Basemath the daughter of Ishmael
and sister of Nebaioth.
36:4 Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, Basemath bore Reuel, 36:5 and Oholibamah
bore Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These were the sons of Esau who were born
to him in the land of Canaan.
36:6 Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, all the people in his
household, his livestock, his animals, and all his possessions which he
had acquired in the land of Canaan and went to a land some distance away
from Jacob his brother 36:7 because they had too many possessions to be
able to stay together and the land where they had settled was not able
to support them because of their livestock. 36:8 So Esau (also known as
Edom) lived in the hill country of Seir.
36:9 This is the account of Esau, the father of the Edomites, in the
hill country of Seir.
36:10 These were the names of Esau's sons:
Eliphaz, the son of Esau's wife Adah, and Reuel, the son of Esau's wife
36:11 The sons of Eliphaz were:
Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz.
36:12 Timna, a concubine of Esau's son Eliphaz, bore Amalek to Eliphaz.
These were the sons of Esau's wife Adah.
36:13 These were the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah.
These were the sons of Esau's wife Basemath.
36:14 These were the sons of Esau's wife Oholibamah the daughter of Anah
and granddaughter of Zibeon: She bore Jeush, Jalam, and Korah to Esau.
36:15 These were the chiefs among the descendants of Esau, the sons of
Eliphaz, Esau's firstborn: chief Teman, chief Omar, chief Zepho, chief
Kenaz, 36:16 chief Korah, chief Gatam, chief Amalek. These were the
chiefs descended from Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these were the sons
36:17 These were the sons of Esau's son Reuel: chief Nahath, chief
Zerah, chief Shammah, chief Mizzah. These were the chiefs descended from
Reuel in the land of Edom; these were the sons of Esau's wife Basemath.
36:18 These were the sons of Esau's wife Oholibamah: chief Jeush, chief
Jalam, chief Korah. These were the chiefs descended from Esau's wife
Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah.
36:19 These were the sons of Esau (also known as Edom), and these were
36:20 These were the sons of Seir the Horite, who were living in the
land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 36:21 Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. These
were the chiefs of the Horites, the descendants of Seir in the land of Edom.
36:22 The sons of Lotan were Hori and Homam; Lotan's sister was Timna.
36:23 These were the sons of Shobal: Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho, and
36:24 These were the sons of Zibeon: Aiah and Anah (who discovered the
hot springs in the wilderness as he pastured the donkeys of his father
36:25 These were the children of Anah: Dishon and Oholibamah, the
daughter of Anah.
36:26 These were the sons of Dishon: Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Keran.
36:27 These were the sons of Ezer: Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan.
36:28 These were the sons of Dishan: Uz and Aran.
36:29 These were the chiefs of the Horites: chief Lotan, chief Shobal,
chief Zibeon, chief Anah, 36:30 chief Dishon, chief Ezer, chief Dishan.
These were the chiefs of the Horites, according to their chief lists in
the land of Seir.
36:31 These were the kings who reigned in the land of Edom before any
king ruled over the Israelites:
36:32 Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom; the name of his city was
36:33 When Bela died, Jobab the son of Zerah from Bozrah reigned in his
36:34 When Jobab died, Husham from the land of the Temanites reigned in
36:35 When Husham died, Hadad the son of Bedad, who defeated the
Midianites in the land of Moab, reigned in his place; the name of his
city was Avith.
36:36 When Hadad died, Samlah from Masrekah reigned in his place.
36:37 When Samlah died, Shaul from Rehoboth by the River reigned in his
36:38 When Shaul died, Baal-Hanan the son of Achbor reigned in his place.
36:39 When Baal-Hanan the son of Achbor died, Hadad reigned in his
place; the name of his city was Pau. His wife's name was Mehetabel, the
daughter of Matred, the daughter of Me-Zahab.
36:40 These were the names of the chiefs of Esau, according to their
families, according to their places, by their names: chief Timna, chief
Alvah, chief Jetheth, 36:41 chief Oholibamah, chief Elah, chief Pinon,
36:42 chief Kenaz, chief Teman, chief Mibzar, 36:43 chief Magdiel, chief
Iram. These were the chiefs of Edom, according to their settlements in
the land they possessed. This was Esau, the father of the Edomites.
Prayer:* Lord, Your Word is always true, so even though there was
confusion and rebellion in the House of Issac Your promise to bless his
children extended to Esau.
Just as Abraham had experienced before them Esau and Jacob's large herds
of animals could not be managed in close proximity -- so Esau again
moved away from his family into Seir where he became "the father of the
The descendants of Esau are provided as a testimony of God's
faithfulness to His promise to bless the children of Issac.
*Consider this:* According to http://bible.org <http://bible.org/> the
Edomites are referenced 39 times in the Old Testament, often in conflict
with the "Tribes of Israel" Gen: 36:9, 36:43; Num: 34:3 ; Deu: 2:4 23:7,
23:8 ; Jdg: 1:36 ; 1Sa: 14:47 21:7 22:9 22:18 22:22 ; 2Sa: 8:13 8:14 ;
1Ki: 11:1 11:14; 11:17 ; 2Ki: 8:20 8:21 14:7 16:6 24:2 ; 1Ch: 18:12
18:13 ; 2Ch: 21:8 21:9 21:10 25:11 25:14 25:19 28:17 ; Psa: 52:1 60:1
83:6 137:7 ; Jer: 9:26 49:19 49:22 ; Eze: 16:57
*Discuss this:* While Esau had apparently forgiven Jacob the text does
not imply that their relationship warmed. Damaged relationships may
often be reconciled, where the conflict ceases, but not restored, where
affection and fellowship are intimate.
*Reflect on this:* Choices have consequences and the one that led to
Esau at odds with his brother Jacob led to generations of conflict among
*Share this:* When have you experienced of observed a relationship that
had been seriously troubled where the two people reconciled but did not
restore to an intimacy one might expect; be it siblings, a couple (men
and women previously married or close to it), or business or minstry
*Faith in Action*
*Prayer:* Ask the Holy Spirit to show you where you might both reconcile
and restore a broken relationship, and if not possible to restore to
clarify the "why".
*Action:* I will prayerfully partner with the Holy Spirit to be made
aware of a previously broken relationship which He wants healed. I will
seek reconciliation and restoration, but only with the wise counsel of a
Biblical elder, so that I neither rush things or force them beyond what
the Lord declares to be right and safe.
