Genesis 36



The Descendants Of Esau

1 Now these are the records of the generations of Esau (that is, Edom).

1 Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.

1 This is a record of Esau's genealogy, that is, of Edom.

1 Now this is the history of the descendants of Esau, that is, Edom.

2 Esau took his wives from the daughters of Canaan: Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah the daughter of Anah and the granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite;

2 Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite;

2 Esau had married Canaanite women, including Elon the Hittite's daughter Adah, Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah (who was Zibeon the Hivite's daughter), and

2 Esau took his wives from the women of Canaan: Adah daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah daughter of Anah, the son of Zibeon the Hivite,

3 also Basemath, Ishmael's daughter, the sister of Nebaioth.

3 And Bashemath Ishmael's daughter, sister of Nebajoth.

3 Ishamael's daughter Basemath (who was Nebaioth's sister).

3 And Basemath, Ishmael's daughter, sister of Nebaioth.

4 Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, and Basemath bore Reuel,

4 And Adah bare to Esau Eliphaz; and Bashemath bare Reuel;

4 Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, Basemath bore Reuel, and

4 Adah bore to Esau, Eliphaz; Basemath bore Reuel;

5 and Oholibamah bore Jeush and Jalam and Korah. These are the sons of Esau who were born to him in the land of Canaan.

5 And Aholibamah bare Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah: these are the sons of Esau, which were born unto him in the land of Canaan.

5 Oholibamah bore Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These were Esau's sons, who were born to him in the territory of Canaan.

5 And Oholibamah bore Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These are the sons of Esau born to him in Canaan.

6 Then Esau took his wives and his sons and his daughters and all his household, and his livestock and all his cattle and all his goods which he had acquired in the land of Canaan, and went to another land away from his brother Jacob.

6 And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the persons of his house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his substance, which he had got in the land of Canaan; and went into the country from the face of his brother Jacob.

6 Later, Esau took his wives, his children, everyone in his household, his livestock, all his animals, and all his possessions that he had acquired in the territory of Canaan and moved far away from his brother Jacob,

6 Now Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, and all the members of his household, his cattle, all his beasts, and all his possessions which he had obtained in the land of Canaan, and he went into a land away from his brother Jacob.

7 For their property had become too great for them to live together, and the land where they sojourned could not sustain them because of their livestock.

7 For their riches were more than that they might dwell together; and the land wherein they were strangers could not bear them because of their cattle.

7 because their holdings were too vast to allow them to stay together, since the land where they had settled was not able to support all of their livestock.

7 For their great flocks and herds and possessions [which they had collected] made it impossible for them to dwell together; the land in which they were strangers could not support them because of their livestock.

8 So Esau lived in the hill country of Seir; Esau is Edom.

8 Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom.

8 So Esau lived in Mount Seir. (Esau was also known as Edom.)

8 So Esau dwelt in the hill country of Seir; Esau is Edom.
