It seems a little strange to include all of Esau's sons' names when I didn't manage to name Jacob's sons in the last chapter (or before).

Esau's sons get this whole chapter of genealogy whereas Jacob's sons are introduced with lots of other things going on.

All twelve names of Jacob's sons take up about 100 characters by themselves!


Thanks for this encapsulated summary.


Esau's sons got a whole chapter of genealogy.


Thank you very much for the summery! You have no idea how much I appreciate this.
