Genesis - Chapter 36

Bible Study Notes

Genesis 36:1-5 Esau’s wives were Adah (Born son Eliphaz), a Hittite, Oholibamah (Born sons Jeush, Jalam, and Korah), a Hivite, and Basemath (Boren son Reul), an Ishmaelite. These were born in Canaan.

Genesis 36:6-8 Esau moved all that he had to Seir in Edom.

Genesis 36:20-30 The generations of Seir, the Horite, who inhabited the land that Esau settled.

Genesis 36:31-39 The Kings of Edom and their successors.

Genesis 36:40-43 The chiefs of Esau.

Notes: Particular attention is given to the presence of both “chiefs” and “kings” among Esau’s descendants, who coexist alongside the Horites, the original inhabitants of Seir. Eventually, however, Esau’s descendants assume control of Seir, renaming it “Edom.”
