Bible Notes: Gen 36-37

Gen 36. Some good names to keep in mind: two of Esau’s wives, Oholibamah and Basemath (2-5). Oholibamah seems to be a family name, as it appears two more times in the list of Esau’s descendants (25 and 41).

Gen 37. Jacob, repeating the sins of his parents, favors one of his sons. Because “their father loved him more” (4), Joseph’s brothers “hated him” (4), and because of his dreams they “hated him even more” (5), “hated him even more” (8), and “were jealous of him” (11).
