What does Genesis 36:30 mean? [⇑ See verse text ⇑]

As far back as the time of Abraham, the Horites occupied the region of Seir, named for their patriarch (Genesis 14:6). They were conquered by Esau and his descendants (Genesis 36:6–8) when they moved to the region (Deuteronomy 2:12).

Along with the previous verse, this lists "chiefs," probably meaning tribal leaders, of the Horites. This repeats Seir's previously mentioned sons, including Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan (Genesis 36:21).
