Gen. 36:31-43 The Rulers of Edom

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

This section further discusses the kings whom came from Esau. Bible.org has an historical view of Edom today.

For those of you whom are reading along with Mike in the One Year Bible Blog, they are studying Leviticus 4:1-5:19 ~ Mark 2:13-3:6 and Psalm 36:1-12 ~ Proverbs 10:1-2 today. Many blessings to you.

The Rulers of Edom 36:31-43-- 1Ch 1:43-54

31These were the kings who reigned in Edom before any Israelite king reigned:

32Bela son of Beor became king of Edom.
His city was named Dinhabah.
33When Bela died, Jobab son of Zerah from Bozrah
succeeded him as king.
34When Jobab died, Husham from the land of
the Temanites succeeded him as king.
35When Husam died, Hadad son of Bedad,
who defeated Midian
in the country of Moab,
succeded him as king.
His city was named Avith.
36When Hadad died,
Samlah from Masrekah
succeeded him as king.
37When Samlah died, Shaul from Rehoboth
on the river succeeded him as king.
38When Shaul died, Baal-Hanan son of Acbor
succeeded him as king.
39When Baal-Hanan son of Acbor died,
Hadad succeeded him as king.
His city was named Pau, and
his wife's name was Mehetabel daughter of
Matred, the daughter of Me-Zahab.

40These were the chiefs descended from Esau, by name, accourding to their clans and regions:

Timna, Alvah, Jetheth,
41Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon,
42Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar,
43Magdiel and Iram.
These were the chiefs of Edom,
according to their settlements
in the land they occupied.

This was Esau the father of the Edomites.
