1 Esaus three wiues. 6 His remouing to mount Seir. 9 His sonnes. 15 The Dukes which descended of his sonnes. 20 The sonnes and dukes of Seir. 24 Anah findeth mules. 31 The kings of Edom. 40 The dukes that descended of Esau.
Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.
Esau tooke his wiues of the daughters of Canaan: Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon the Hiuite:
And Bashemath Ishmaels daughter, sister of Nebaioth.
And Adah bare to Esau, Eliphaz: and Bashemath bare Reuel.4
And Aholibamah bare Ieush, and Iaalam, and Korah: these are the sonnes of Esau, which were borne vnto him in the land of Canaan.
And Esau tooke his wiues, and his sonnes, and his daughters, and all the persons of his house, and his cattell, and all his beasts, and all his substance, which he had got in the lande of Canaan: and went into the countrey from the face of his brother Iacob.6
For their riches were more then that they might dwell together: and the land wherein they were strangers, could not beare them, because of their cattell.
Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom.8
