“These are the descendants of Esau [that is, Edom]. Esau took his wives from among the Canaanite women.” —Genesis 36:1-2
Genesis’ priestly author ties up the loose ends of this section by giving “dishonorable” mention to Esau and his descendants, the descendants of Seir, and the early kings of Edom.
Prayer: Lord, may I not throw away my life as Esau did. May I be what You want me to be.
