What does Genesis 36:42 mean?

After listing the sons of Esau (Genesis 36:9–14) and the kings of Edom (Genesis 36:31–39), the chapter ends with a list of "chiefs" (Genesis 36:40). These names may be those of important leaders, other than kings, or even the titles given to certain clans or geographical regions of Edom. Teman is referenced as a regional term later in the Bible (Amos 1:12; Obadiah 1:9; Habakkuk 3:3).

The chiefs of Esau included Timna, Alvah, Jetheth (Genesis 36:40), Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon (Genesis 36:41), and now Kenaz, Teman, and Mibzar.
