1 This is the history of the descendants of Esau (also known as Edom). 1 This is the account of Esau (that is, Edom).
2 Esau married two young women from Canaan: Adah, the daughter of Elon the Hittite; and Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah and 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 He also married his cousin Basemath, who was the daughter of Ishmael and the sister of Nebaioth. 3 also Basemath daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth.
4 Esau and Adah had a son named Eliphaz. Esau and Basemath had a son named Reuel. 4 Adah bore Eliphaz to Esau, Basemath bore Reuel,

6 Then Esau took his wives, children, household servants, cattle, and flocks -- all the wealth he had gained in the land of Canaan -- and moved 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 There was not enough land to support them both because of all their cattle and 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.
