Bible study 36 – Genesis 36

This chapter is more or less just a list of names, and is pretty boring. It starts with Esau’s wives and descendants. Of note is that the names of all of Esau’s wives have changed since the last time they were mentioned. Even the daughter of Ishmael that he married, who was earlier called Mahalath, is now Basemath. There is also a list of “Horites”, who apparently are the people who lived in Edom (or Seir; basically the area of the eastern Negeb, as far as I can tell) before Esau.
