1These are the descendants of Esau, that is, Edom. 2Esau married Canaanite women: Adah the daughter of the Hittite Elon; Oholibamah the daughter of Anah son of the Hittite Zibeon,#36.2 LXX, Sam, Syr; MT daughter 3and Basemath the daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth. 4Adah gave birth to Eliphaz for Esau, Basemath gave birth to Reuel, 5and Oholibamah gave birth to Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These are Esau’s sons born to him in the land of Canaan.
6Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, and everyone in his household, and his livestock, all of his animals, and all of the property he had acquired in the land of Canaan; and he moved away from the land of Canaan#36.6 LXX, Sam; MT to a land and from his brother Jacob. 7They had so many possessions that they couldn’t live together. The land where they lived as immigrants couldn’t support all of their livestock. 8So Esau, that is, Edom, lived in the mountains of Seir.
