19 - Esau's history

Kathleen’s thoughts
Genesis 28: 6-6-9 & Chapter 36: 1-30
Here we see Esau’s rebellion against his father and he marries Canaanite woman
Adah Daughter of Elon the Hittite
Oholibamah daughter of Anah and grand-daughter of Zibeon the Hivite
Basemath daughter of Ishmael and sister of Nebaioth.
The following verses is the genealogy of their children
Adah’s children – Eliphaz
Basemeth – Reuel
Oholibamah – Jeush, Jalam, and Korah.
These were the sons born in Canaan.
Esau is known as the father of the Edomites

Genesis 31 Jacob’s flees from Laban but his wife Rachael steals her father’s idols unbeknown to Jacob. When Laban discovers that Jacobs has gone he goes after him and asks why then also challenges Jacob about the idols that have been stolen. Jacob’s reply to this was “If you find your gods with anyone here, he will not live”.
We are going to have to wait for tomorrow’s reading to find out the ending.

A man’s steps are established by the Lord, and He takes pleasure in his way. Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed, because the Lord holds his hand: Psa. 37: 23-24
