What does Genesis 36:16 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Genesis 36:16

Duke Korah
Only among the sons of Eliphaz is reckoned Duke Korah, not before mentioned among his sons, and is left out in the Samaritan version; (See Gill on Genesis 36:7); to which it may be added, that according to Gerundinsis F1, this is the same with Timna, related among the sons of Eliphaz, ( 1 Chronicles 1:36 ) ; who was called by his father Korah: or this might be a grandson of Eliphaz.
