What does Genesis 36:10 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

This verse begins to expand on the genealogy which began this chapter (Genesis 36:1). Eliphaz and Reuel were Esau's sons by his wives Adah and Basemath, respectively.

The name Eliphaz means something like "the god El conquers" or perhaps "my god is Paz."

Reuel means "friend of God," a name later used by Jacob's descendants.
