Hoffnung für Alle

1. Mose 36:1-43

Esaus Nachkommen

1Es folgt der Stammbaum von Esau, der auch Edom genannt wurde:

2-3Er hatte drei Frauen aus Kanaan geheiratet: Ada, eine Tochter des Hetiters Elon; Oholibama, eine Tochter Anas und Enkelin des Horiters Zibon, und Basemat, eine Tochter Ismaels und Schwester Nebajots. 4Von Ada hatte er einen Sohn mit Namen Elifas; von Basemat stammte Reguël, 5und mit Oholibama zeugte er Jëusch, Jalam und Korach. Alle wurden im Land Kanaan geboren.

6Später verließ Esau das Land. Seine Frauen, Kinder und alle, die zu ihm gehörten, nahm er mit; dazu seine Viehherden und den Besitz, den er in Kanaan erworben hatte. Er zog in das Land Seïr, fort von seinem Bruder Jakob. 7Sie besaßen beide so große Viehherden, dass es im Land Kanaan nicht genug Weidefläche für sie gab. 8Deshalb ließ sich Esau, der Stammvater der Edomiter, im Bergland Seïr nieder.

9Dies ist die Liste der Nachkommen von Esau; es sind die Edomiter, die im Land Seïr leben. 10Die Söhne Esaus: Von seinen beiden Frauen Ada und Basemat hatte Esau je einen Sohn; Ada brachte Elifas zur Welt und Basemat Reguël. 11Elifas’ Söhne waren Teman, Omar, Zefo, Gatam, Kenas 12und Amalek. Amalek war der Sohn von Elifas’ Nebenfrau Timna. 13Reguël hatte vier Söhne: Nahat, Serach, Schamma und Misa. 14Oholibama, die Tochter Anas und Enkelin Zibons, bekam drei Söhne: Jëusch, Jalam und Korach.

15-16Esaus Söhne wurden zu Oberhäuptern verschiedener Stämme. Von Esaus ältestem Sohn Elifas stammen die Fürsten Teman, Omar, Zefo, Kenas, Korach, Gatam und Amalek. Sie gehen auf Esaus Frau Ada zurück. 17Von Esaus Sohn Reguël stammen die Fürsten Nahat, Serach, Schamma und Misa. Sie gehen auf Esaus Frau Basemat zurück. 18Von Esaus Frau Oholibama stammen die Fürsten Jëusch, Jalam und Korach. 19Diese Fürsten sind Nachkommen Esaus und bilden das Volk der Edomiter.

Seïrs Nachkommen

20-21Die Einwohner im Land Edom gehen auf den Horiter Seïr zurück. Seine Söhne waren Lotan, Schobal, Zibon, Ana, Dischon, Ezer und Dischan. Sie waren die Oberhäupter von den verschiedenen Stämmen der Horiter.

22Lotans Söhne hießen Hori und Hemam, seine Schwester hieß Timna. 23Schobals Söhne waren Alwan, Manahat, Ebal, Schefi und Onam. 24Zibons Söhne waren Ajja und Ana. Ana fand eine heiße Quelle in der Wüste, als er dort die Esel seines Vaters Zibon weidete. 25Ana hatte einen Sohn namens Dischon und eine Tochter mit Namen Oholibama. 26Dischons Söhne hießen Hemdan, Eschban, Jitran und Keran. 27Ezers Söhne waren Bilhan, Saawan und Akan. 28Dischans Söhne hießen Uz und Aran.

29-30Aus diesen entstanden die Stämme der Horiter, denen die Stammesfürsten Lotan, Schobal, Zibon, Ana, Dischon, Ezer und Dischan als Oberhäupter vorstanden.

Genesis 36:1-43

The Family Line of Esau

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

2Esau 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. 3And he married Basemath, the daughter of Ishmael and the sister of Nebaioth.

4Adah had Eliphaz by Esau. Basemath had Reuel. 5Oholibamah had Jeush, Jalam and Korah. All of them were Esau’s sons. They were born in Canaan.

6Esau 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. 7Jacob 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. 8So Esau made his home in the hill country of Seir. Esau was also called Edom.

9Here 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.
