This chapter lists the descendants of Esau, who apparently also now goes by Edom. What little narrative is in this chapter tells us that Esau moves to Seir, because the land cannot sustain both he and Jacob. Esau also marries 3 women, one of whom is his cousin.
This does mean that I can add to the list of biblically supported non-“traditional” marriage types with this entry:
- A man and three women, one of whom is his cousin. (Genesis 36:2-3)
The rest of this chapter might be of interest to those who enjoy biblical ancestry or building family trees, but I am not.
