Genesis 36

De afstammelingen van Esau

1Hier is een lijst van de afstammelingen van Esau (die ook wel Edom werd genoemd):

Esau trouwde met drie Kanaänitische meisjes: Ada, de dochter van de Hethiet Elon, Oholibama, de dochter van Ana en kleindochter van de Chiwwiet Sibon, en Basemat, de dochter van Ismaël (dus Esauʼs nicht) en de zuster van Nebajot. Esau en Ada kregen een zoon, Elifaz. Esau en Basemat hadden een zoon met de naam Reüel. Esau en Oholibama hadden drie zonen: Jeüs, Jalam en Korach. Al deze zonen werden geboren in het land Kanaän.

6-8 Toen nam Esau zijn vrouwen, zijn kinderen, zijn hele huishouding, het vee en de kudde—alle bezittingen die hij in Kanaän had vergaard—en trok naar het gebergte Seïr, weg van zijn broer Jakob. Het land was niet groot genoeg om in alle behoeften van hun vee te voorzien.

Hier zijn de namen van Esauʼs afstammelingen, de Edomieten die hem in het gebergte Seïr werden geboren:

10-12 Nakomelingen van zijn vrouw Ada, die haar zoon Elifaz kreeg, waren: Teman, Omar, Sefo, Gatam, Kenaz en Amalek (dat was een kind van Timna, de bijvrouw van Elifaz). 13,14 Esau kreeg ook kleinkinderen via zijn vrouw Basemat. Haar zoon Reüel kreeg Nachat, Zerach, Samma en Mizza.

15,16 Esauʼs kleinkinderen werden stamhoofden van de volgende stammen: de stam van Teman, de stam van Omar, de stam van Sefo, de stam van Kenaz, de stam van Korach, de stam van Gaëtam en de stam van Amalek. De bovengenoemde stammen waren nakomelingen van Elifaz, de oudste zoon van Esau en Ada. 17 De volgende stammen waren nakomelingen van Reüel, de zoon die Esau en Basemat kregen in Kanaän: de stam van Nachat, de stam van Zerach, de stam van Samma en de stam van Mizza.

18,19 En dit zijn de stammen die de namen dragen van de zonen van Esau en Oholibama (de dochter van Ana): de stam van Jeüs, de stam van Jalam en de stam van Korach.

20,21 Dit zijn de namen van de stammen die voortkwamen uit Seïr: de stam van Lotan, de stam van Sobal, de stam van Sibon, de stam van Ana, de stam van Dison, de stam van Eser en de stam van Disan.

22 De kinderen van Lotan (de zoon van Seïr) waren Chori en Hemam (Lotan had ook nog een zuster, Timna). 23 De kinderen van Sobal waren Alwan, Manachat, Ebal, Sefo en Onam. 24 De kinderen van Sibon waren Ajja en Ana (deze jongen vond hete bronnen in de woestijn, terwijl hij de ezels van zijn vader hoedde). 25 De kinderen van Ana waren Dison en het meisje Oholibama. 26 De kinderen van Dison waren Chemdan, Esban, Jitran en Keran. 27 De kinderen van Eser waren Bilhan, Zaäwan en Akan. 28-30 De kinderen van Disan waren Us en Aran.

31-39 Dit zijn de namen van de koningen die Edom regeerden voordat Israël haar eerste koning had: koning Bela, de zoon van Beor, regeerde vanuit de stad Dinhaba in Edom. Zijn opvolger was koning Jobab, de zoon van Zerach en deze regeerde in Bosra. Toen Jobab stierf, volgde Chusam uit Teman hem op. Diens opvolger was koning Hadad, de zoon van Bedad, de aanvoerder van de strijdkrachten die het leger van Midjan versloegen toen het Moab binnendrong. Hij woonde in de stad Awit. Zijn opvolger was koning Samla, die regeerde vanuit Masreka. Diens opvolger was koning Saül, die regeerde vanuit Rechobot, aan de rivier. Saüls opvolger was koning Baäl-Chanan, de zoon van Achbor. Diens opvolger was koning Hadar, die regeerde vanuit de stad Paü. Zijn vrouw heette Mehetabel en was de dochter van Matred en kleindochter van Me-Zahab.

40-43 Hier zijn de namen van de onderstammen van Esau. De plaatsen waar zij woonden, werden naar hen genoemd: de stam van Timna, de stam van Alwa, de stam van Jetet, de stam van Oholibama, de stam van Ela, de stam van Pinon, de stam van Kenaz, de stam van Teman, de stam van Mibsar, de stam van Magdiël en de stam van Iram. Dit zijn dus de namen van de onderstammen van Edom die hun namen gaven aan de gebieden die zij bewoonden (het waren allemaal Edomieten, afstammelingen van Esau).

Genesis 36

The Family Line of Esau

1Here is the story of the family line of Esau. Esau was also called Edom.

Esau got his wives from among the women of Canaan. He married Adah, the daughter of Elon the Hittite. He also married Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah and the granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite. And he married Basemath, the daughter of Ishmael and the sister of Nebaioth.

Adah had Eliphaz by Esau. Basemath had Reuel. Oholibamah had Jeush, Jalam and Korah. All of them were Esau’s sons. They were born in Canaan.

Esau moved to a land far away from his brother Jacob. Esau took with him his wives, his sons and daughters, and all the people who lived with him. He also took his livestock and all his other animals. He took everything he had acquired in Canaan. Jacob and Esau owned so much that they couldn’t remain together. There wasn’t enough land for both of them. They had too much livestock. So Esau made his home in the hill country of Seir. Esau was also called Edom.

Here is the story of the family line of Esau. He’s the father of the people of Edom. They live in the hill country of Seir.
