What does Genesis 36:28 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

When Esau and his descendants, the Edomites, moved into the land of Seir (Genesis 36:6–8), it was already occupied by the Horites (Genesis 14:6). Through conquest (Deuteronomy 2:12), Edom would take over and live in that land for centuries to come.

Seir's son Dishan fathered Uz and Aran. He should not be confused with Dishon (Genesis 36:25–26, 30–31).
