1. Mosebog 36:1-43

Esaus slægt

1Det følgende er Esaus historie, han som også blev kaldt Edom:

2Esau giftede sig med to kana’anæiske piger: Ada, en datter af hittitten Elon, og Oholibama, en datter af Ana og barnebarn af hivvitten Zibon. 3Han giftede sig også med sin kusine Basemat, en datter af Ishmael og søster til Nebajot. 4Esau og Ada fik en søn, der blev kaldt Elifaz. Esau og Basemat fik en søn, der blev kaldt Reuel. 5Esau og Oholibama fik tre sønner, der fik navnene Jeush, Jalam og Kora. Alle disse sønner blev født i Kana’ans land.

6Senere tog Esau sine koner, sine sønner, sine døtre, hele sin husstand og besætning og alt, hvad han havde samlet sig i Kana’ans land, og flyttede til et andet land af frygt for sin bror Jakob. 7Deres husdyr var jo også blevet alt for mange til, at de som fremmede kunne bo samme sted som de fastboende. Der var slet ikke græs nok. 8Esau slog sig derfor ned i Seirs bjergland.

9Her følger en liste over Esaus efterkommere, edomitterne, som bor i Seirs bjergland:

10-13Ada fødte som sagt Esau en søn, der fik navnet Elifaz, og han fik fem sønner: Teman, Omar, Zefo, Gatam og Kenaz. Elifaz havde også en kone, som hed Timna, og med hende fik han sønnen Amalek.

Esau og hans kone Basemat fik sønnen Reuel, og han fik fire sønner: Nahat, Zerach, Shamma og Mizza.

14Esaus kone Oholibama, en datter af Zibons søn Ana, fødte tre sønner: Jeush, Jalam og Kora.

15-16Esaus sønner og sønnesønner blev stamfædre for de forskellige stammer blandt Edoms folk. De stammer, der er kendt under navnene Teman, Omar, Zefo, Kenaz, Kora, Gatam og Amalek, nedstammer alle fra Elifaz, Esaus og Adas ældste søn.

17De stammer, der er kendt under navnene Nahat, Zerach, Shamma og Mizza, nedstammer alle fra Reuel, Esaus og Basemats søn.

18-19Desuden er der stammerne Jeush, Jalam og Kora, opkaldt efter de sønner, som Esau fik med sin kone Oholibama, Anas datter.

Edoms oprindelige indbyggere

20-21Her følger en liste med navnene på de stammer, som oprindeligt boede i Seirs land: Lotan, Shobal, Zibon, Ana, Dishon, Etzer og Dishan. De er efterkommere af og har navn efter horitten Seirs sønner.

22Lotan, Seirs søn, havde følgende sønner: Hori og Hemam. Lotan havde også en søster ved navn Timna.

23Shobals sønner hed Alvan, Manahat, Ebal, Shefo og Onam.

24Zibons sønner hed Ajja og Ana. Det var Ana, som opdagede en varm kilde i ørkenen, dengang han vogtede sin fars æsler. 25Anas børn var sønnen Dishon og datteren Oholibama. 26Dishons sønner hed Hemdan, Eshban, Jitran og Keran.

27Etzers sønner hed Bilhan, Za’avan og Akan.

28Dishans sønner hed Utz og Aran.

29-30Horitternes stammer i Seirs land hed altså: Lotan, Shobal, Zibon, Ana, Dishon, Etzer og Dishan.

De oprindelige konger i Seirs land

31-39Endnu før der var konger i Israel, herskede følgende konger i det, der nu hedder Edom: Først Bela, Beors søn, fra byen Dinhaba. Da han døde, efterfulgtes han af Jobab, Zerachs søn fra Botzra. Da Jobab døde, efterfulgtes han af Husham fra temanitternes område. Da Husham døde, blev Hadad konge. Han var søn af Bedad og kom fra byen Avit. Det var ham, der besejrede midjanitternes hær i Moabs land. Da Hadad døde, blev Samla fra Masreka konge. Da han døde, blev Shaul fra flodbyen Rehobot konge. Da han døde, blev Ba’al-Hanan, Ahbors søn, konge. Da han døde, blev Hadar fra Pau konge. Hans kone hed Mehetabel og var datter af Matred, som igen var datter af Mezahab.

40Slægtsoverhovederne i Esaus slægt hed Timna, Alva, Jetet, 41Oholibama, Ela, Pinon, 42Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar, 43Magdiel og Iram. Det område, som hver enkelt slægt boede i, overtog efterhånden slægtens navn.

King James Version

Genesis 36:1-43

1Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom. 2Esau 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; 3And Bashemath Ishmael’s daughter, sister of Nebajoth.36.3 Bashemath: or, Mahalath 4And Adah bare to Esau Eliphaz; and Bashemath bare Reuel; 5And Aholibamah bare Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah: these are the sons of Esau, which were born unto him in the land of Canaan. 6And 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.36.6 persons: Heb. souls 7For 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. 8Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom.

9¶ And these are the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites in mount Seir:36.9 the Edomites: Heb. Edom 10These are the names of Esau’s sons; Eliphaz the son of Adah the wife of Esau, Reuel the son of Bashemath the wife of Esau. 11And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, and Gatam, and Kenaz.36.11 Zepho: or, Zephi 12And Timna was concubine to Eliphaz Esau’s son; and she bare to Eliphaz Amalek: these were the sons of Adah Esau’s wife. 13And these are the sons of Reuel; Nahath, and Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah: these were the sons of Bashemath Esau’s wife.

14¶ And these were the sons of Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah the daughter of Zibeon, Esau’s wife: and she bare to Esau Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah.

15¶ These were dukes of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz the firstborn son of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz, 16Duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Amalek: these are the dukes that came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these were the sons of Adah.

17¶ And these are the sons of Reuel Esau’s son; duke Nahath, duke Zerah, duke Shammah, duke Mizzah: these are the dukes that came of Reuel in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Bashemath Esau’s wife.

18¶ And these are the sons of Aholibamah Esau’s wife; duke Jeush, duke Jaalam, duke Korah: these were the dukes that came of Aholibamah the daughter of Anah, Esau’s wife. 19These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their dukes.

20¶ These are the sons of Seir the Horite, who inhabited the land; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah, 21And Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan: these are the dukes of the Horites, the children of Seir in the land of Edom. 22And the children of Lotan were Hori and Hemam; and Lotan’s sister was Timna.36.22 Hemam: or, Homam 23And the children of Shobal were these; Alvan, and Manahath, and Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.36.23 Alvan: or, Alian36.23 Shepho: or, Shephi 24And these are the children of Zibeon; both Ajah, and Anah: this was that Anah that found the mules in the wilderness, as he fed the asses of Zibeon his father. 25And the children of Anah were these; Dishon, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah. 26And these are the children of Dishon; Hemdan, and Eshban, and Ithran, and Cheran.36.26 Hemdan: or, Amram 27The children of Ezer are these; Bilhan, and Zaavan, and Akan.36.27 Akan: or, Jakan 28The children of Dishan are these; Uz, and Aran. 29These are the dukes that came of the Horites; duke Lotan, duke Shobal, duke Zibeon, duke Anah, 30Duke Dishon, duke Ezer, duke Dishan: these are the dukes that came of Hori, among their dukes in the land of Seir.

31¶ And these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom, before there reigned any king over the children of Israel. 32And Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom: and the name of his city was Dinhabah. 33And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead. 34And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of Temani reigned in his stead. 35And Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad, who smote Midian in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Avith. 36And Hadad died, and Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead. 37And Samlah died, and Saul of Rehoboth by the river reigned in his stead. 38And Saul died, and Baal-hanan the son of Achbor reigned in his stead. 39And Baal-hanan the son of Achbor died, and Hadar reigned in his stead: and the name of his city was Pau; and his wife’s name was Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab.36.39 Hadar, Pau: or, Hadad, Pai: after his death was an Aristocracy 40And these are the names of the dukes that came of Esau, according to their families, after their places, by their names; duke Timnah, duke Alvah, duke Jetheth,36.40 Alvah: or, Aliah 41Duke Aholibamah, duke Elah, duke Pinon, 42Duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar, 43Duke Magdiel, duke Iram: these be the dukes of Edom, according to their habitations in the land of their possession: he is Esau the father of the Edomites.36.43 the Edomites: Heb.
