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.

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.

Könige und Oberhäupter der Edomiter

31Noch bevor die Israeliten einen König hatten, regierten im Land Edom nacheinander folgende Könige:

32König Bela, der Sohn von Beor, in der Stadt Dinhaba;

33König Jobab, der Sohn von Serach, aus Bozra;

34König Huscham aus dem Gebiet der Temaniter;

35König Hadad, der Sohn von Bedad, in der Stadt Awit; sein Heer schlug die Midianiter im Gebiet von Moab;

36König Samla aus Masreka;

37König Schaul aus Rehobot am Fluss;

38König Baal-Hanan, der Sohn von Achbor;

39König Hadad in der Stadt Pagu; seine Frau hieß Mehetabel, sie war eine Tochter von Matred und Enkelin von Me-Sahab.

40-43Folgende Oberhäupter der Edomiter stammen von Esau ab: Timna, Alwa, Jetet, Oholibama, Ela, Pinon, Kenas, Teman, Mibzar, Magdiël und Iram. Nach ihnen werden die verschiedenen Stämme und ihre Gebiete benannt.
