Gen 36:1-30 Esau's Descendants

If you would like to continue reading my writings, I have moved to Loving God Holy at WordPress. Thank you.

In this lesson, there are four sections: Esau's Descendants, The Rulers of Edom (remember Esau was also known as Edom), Joseph's Dream, and Joseph Sold by His Brothers. These four sections are captured under the title, Jacob, Joseph, Jealousy, and a Journey to Egypt (Genesis 36:1-37:36).

Mike from One Year Bible Blog has a very good write up on this section. If you would care to read ahead with Mike, they are studying Leviticus 1:1-3:17 ~ Mark 1:29-2:12 and Psalm 35:17-28 ~ Proverbs 9:13-18 today. Have a blessing filled day.

Esau's Descendants
36:10-14--1Ch 1:35-37
36:20-28--1 Ch 1:38-42

36 This is the account of Esau (that is, Edom).

2Esau took his wives from the women of Canaan: Adah daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite-- 3also Basemath daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth.

4Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, Basemath bore Reuel, 4and Oholibamah bore Jeush, Jalam and Korah. These were the sons of Esau, who were born to him in Canaan.
This answers my questions as to whether or not Esau went out and married Canaanites after he overheard his father say he did not want Jacob to marry any Canaanites.

In a way, he reminds me of myself in this instance. lol. I used to be a hard head myself.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Please forgive me of my pride and selfishness. I did not listen to Your corrections, and I ended up in bad situations. I thank You for always being there for me to rescue me. You truly are my hiding place.

In Jesus' Precious name I pray. Amen.
6Esau 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 he moved to a land some distance from his brother Jacob. 7Their possessions were too great for them to remain together; the land where they were staying could not support them both because of their livestock. 8So Esau (that is, Edom) settled in the hill country of Seir.
36:8 Seir. Another name for Edom. The word itself is related to the Hebrew word meaning 'hair,' a possible meaning also for the name 'Esau' [see NIV text note on 25:25]. Esau's clan must have driven away the original Horite [see v. 20] inhabitants of Seir [see 14:6 and note]. The descendants of Seir are listed in vv 20-28.

If you would like any notes that are not already provided, please leave a comment letting me know which ones you would like. I will be more than happy to provide them.
9This is the account of Esau the father of the Edomites in the hill country of Seir.
10These are the names of Esau's sons:
Eliphaz, the son of Esaus's wife Adah, and Reuel, the son of Esau's wife Basemath.
11The sons of Elipahz:
Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam and Kenaz. 12Esau's son Eliphaz also had a concubine named Timna, who bore him Amalek. These were grandsons of Esau's wife Adah.
The sons of Reuel:
Nahath, Zerah, Shammah and Mizzah. These were grandsons of Esau's wife Basemath."
14The sons of Esau's wife Oholibamah daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zilbeon, whom she bore to Esau:
Jeush, Jalam and Korah.
15These were the chiefs among Esau's descendants:
The sons of Eliphaz of Esau:
Chiefs Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz, 16Korah, Gatam and Amalek. These were the chiefs descended from Eliphaz in Edom; they were grandsons of Adah.
17The sons of Esau's son Reuel:
Chiefs Nahath, Zerah, Shammah and Mizzah. These were the chiefs descended from Reuel in Edom; they were grandsons of Esau's wife Basemath.
18The sons of Esau's wife Oholibamah:
Chiefs Jeush, Jalam and Korah. These were the chiefs descended from Esau's wife Oholibamah daughter of Anah.
19These were the sons of Esau [that is, Edom], and these were their chiefs.
20These were the sons of Seir the Horite, who were living in the region:
Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 21Dishon, Ezer and Dishan. These sons of Seir in Edom were Horite chiefs.
22The sons of Lotan:
Hori and Homam. Timna was Lotan's sister.
23The sons of Shobal:
Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho and Onam.
24The sons of Zibeon:
Aiah and Anah. This is the Anah who discovered the hot springs in the desert while he was grazing the donkeys of his father Zilbeon.

36:24 This is the Anah who...Zibeon. To distinguish him from the other Ahah mentioned in vv 2, 14, 18. The two Anahs appear together in v 25.
25The children of Anah:
Dishon and Oholibamah daughter of Anah.

How can they both appear here? These are the chilren of one man, no? Why throw in the 'daughter of'? To confuse me? Hmm. lol
26The sons of Dishon:
Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran and Keran.
27The sons of Ezer:
Bilhan, Zaavan and Akan.
28The sons of Dishan:
Uz and Aran.
29These were the Horite chiefs:
Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah, 30Dishon, Ezer and Dishan. These were the Horite chiefs according to their divisions in the land of Seir.
One is the uncle and the other is the nephew. That is what comes apparent by reading all the notes. The Anah in the verse 29 is the uncle, and the one who found the hot springs was the nephew. Wheh!
