The Horites (Genesis 36:20–30) were the original inhabitants of Seir (Genesis 14:6), a land that came to be occupied by Esau and his descendants (Genesis 36:6–8). The family lines of the man the region was named after are listed here.

Seir's son Anah (Genesis 36:20) is to be distinguished from his nephew Anah, son to this Anah's brother Zibeon mentioned in the previous verse (Genesis 36:24). This Anah fathered Dishon and a daughter named Oholibamah, who became one of Esau's wives (Genesis 36:2).
