13) Esau intermarried with Canaanite women. God still blessed him as he had to move away from Jacob because their livestock were too great in number. Esau was the father of the Edomites.

Conclusions BSF Study Questions Genesis: Lesson 22, Day 5: Genesis 36

Esau was important enough in God’s eyes to have all of his descendants listed in the Bible.  He was loved despite his sins and blessed beyond what was deserved.  God is faithful even when we aren’t!  Can you imagine the blessings He has in store for those who are faithful?

End Notes BSF Study Questions Genesis: Lesson 22, Day 5: Genesis 36

Genesis lists the families not in the line of Messiah first. After this, we’ll hear no more of Esau and his line; it will be all about Jacob’s line.

Seir is the land south of the Dead Sea.

God blessed Esau because he was Abraham’s descendant and not for what he did. Again, God can do what He likes, even if we don’t agree with it. Kings came from Esau.

Fun Fact: Edom is mentioned more than 130 times in the Bible.

God loved Jacob and hated Esau (Malachi 1:2-3 and Romans 9:13).

Amalekites came from Amalek in this list. They were Israel’s enemies (Exodus 17:8-16Deuteronomy 25:17-191 Samuel 15:1-8).

It’s cool to see history played out.
