1 Now these are the generations of Esau, that is to say, Edom. 1 This is the account of Esau (that is, Edom).
2 Esau's wives were women of Canaan: Adah, the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah, the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite, 2 Esau took his wives from the women of Canaan: Adah daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah daughter of Anah and granddaughter of Zibeon the Hivite--
3 And Basemath, Ishmael's daughter, the sister of Nebaioth. 3 also Basemath daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth.
4 Adah had a son Eliphaz; and Basemath was the mother of Reuel; 4 Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, Basemath bore Reuel,
5 Oholibamah was the mother of Jeush, Jalam, and Korah; these are the sons of Esau, whose birth took place in the land of Canaan. 5 and Oholibamah bore Jeush, Jalam and Korah. These were the sons of Esau, who were born to him in Canaan.
6 Esau took his wives and his sons and his daughters, and all the people of his house, and his beasts and his cattle and all his goods which he had got together in the land of Canaan, and went into the land of Seir, away from his brother Jacob. 6 Esau took his wives and sons and daughters and all the members of his household, as well as his livestock and all his other animals and all the goods he had acquired in Canaan, and moved to a land some distance from his brother Jacob.
7 For their wealth was so great that the land was not wide enough for the two of them and all their cattle. 7 Their possessions were too great for them to remain together; the land where they were staying could not support them both because of their livestock.
