What does Genesis 36:26 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

Prior to the time of Abraham, the region known as Seir was inhabited (Genesis 36:20–30) by a people called Horites (Genesis 14:6). Esau's family will conquer this area (Deuteronomy 2:12), settling there and establishing the nation of Edom (Genesis 36:6–8).

Seir's son Dishon shares a name with his nephew mentioned in the previous verse (Genesis 36:25). This Dishon fathered Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran.
