ANAH . 1 . A daughter of Zibeon, and mother of Oholibamah, one of Esau’s wives ( Genesis 36:2; Genesis 36:14; Genesis 36:18; Genesis 36:26 (R [Note: Redactor.] )). Some ancient authorities (including LXX [Note: Septuagint.] . Sam. Pesh.) read son instead of daughter , which would identify this Anah with 2 . A son of Zibeon ( Genesis 36:24 (R [Note: Redactor.] ), 1 Chronicles 1:40-41 ). 3 . A Horite ‘duke,’ brother of Zibeon ( Genesis 36:20; Genesis 36:29 (R [Note: Redactor.] ), 1 Chronicles 1:38 ). If we take Anah as an eponym rather than a personal name, and think of relationships between clans rather than individuals, it is quite possible to reduce the above three references to one. In regard to No. 2 the note is appended, ‘This is Anah who found the hot springs (AV [Note: Authorized Version.] wrongly ‘the mules’) in the wilderness, as he fed the asses of Zibeon his father’ ( Genesis 36:24 ).
