1 And these are the births of Esau; he is Edom.

2 Esau took his women from the daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah the daughter of Anah and the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite*;

3 and Basemath the daughter of Ishmael, the sister of Nebaioth.

4 And Adah gave·​·birth to Eliphaz for Esau; and Basemath gave·​·birth to Reuel;

5 and Oholibamah gave·​·birth·​·to Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah; these are the sons of Esau that were·​·born to him in the land of Canaan.

6 And Esau took his women, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the souls of his house, and his livestock, and every beast of his, and all that he bought, which he had acquired in the land of Canaan, and went unto a land from the face of Jacob his brother.

7 For their acquisition was too· much ·for dwelling together; and the land of their sojournings was· not ·able to bear them on·​·account·​·of their livestock.

8 And Esau dwelt in Mount Seir; Esau, he is Edom.

9 And these are the births of Esau the father of Edom* in Mount Seir.

31 And these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom, before there reigned a king over the sons of Israel.

32 And Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom; and the name of his city was Dinhabah.

33 And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zeraḥ of Bozrah reigned in· his ·stead.

34 And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of the Temanites reigned in· his ·stead.

Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 36      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

Here is an excerpt from Swedenborg's "Arcana Coelestia" that helps explain the inner meaning of this chapter:

AC 4639. In the internal sense the subject here treated of is the Lord‘s Divine good natural, and the whole order of this good is described by the names. The Lord’s Divine good natural is "Esau".
