The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 This is the family tree of Esau, who is also called Edom. 1 This is the account of Esau (that is, Edom).
2 Esau married women of Canaan: Adah, daughter of Elon the Hittite; Oholibamah, daughter of Anah and the granddaughter 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, daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth. 3 also Basemath daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth.
4 Adah gave Esau Eliphaz; Basemath had Reuel; 4 Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, Basemath bore Reuel,
5 Oholibamah had Jeush, Jalam, and Korah. These are the sons of Esau who were born to him 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 gathered up his wives, sons and daughters, and everybody in his household, along with all his livestock - all the animals and possessions he had gotten in Canaan - and moved a considerable distance 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 The brothers had too many possessions to live together in the same place; the land couldn't support their combined herds of livestock. 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.
8 So Esau ended up settling in the hill country of Seir (Esau and Edom are the same). 8 So Esau (that is, Edom) settled in the hill country of Seir.
9 So this is the family tree of Esau, ancestor of the people of Edom, in the hill country of Seir. 9 This is the account of Esau the father of the Edomites in the hill country of Seir.
