And these are the kings who ruled in Edom before there was a king in Israel:
Bela son of Beor was the king of Edom; the name of his city was Dinhabah.
When Bela died, Jobab son of Zerah from Bozrah became the next king.
When Jobab died, he was followed by Hushan from the land of the Temanites.
When Hushan died, he was followed by Hadad son of Bedad; he was the king who defeated the Midianites in Moab; the name of his city was Avith.
When Hadad died, Samlah of Masrekah became the next king.
