Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO GENESIS 36\\

This chapter gives us a genealogical account of Esau's family, of his
wives and sons, with whom he removed from Seir, \\#Ge 36:1-10\\; of his
sons' sons, or grandsons, who were dukes in the land of Edom,
\\#Ge 36:11-19\\; after which is inserted a genealogy of Seir the Horite,
into whose family Esau married, and of his children, and the dukes
among them, \\#Ge 36:20-30\\; then follows a list of the kings of Edom,
before there were any in Israel, \\#Ge 36:31-39\\; and the chapter is
closed with a brief narration of the dukes of Esau, according to their
families, \\#Ge 36:40-43\\.
