Read the Word Of God Daily

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse, the reading is currently at: Genesis 35:26-29, 36:1-5

26 The sons of Zelpha, Lia's handmaid: Gad and Aser: these are the sons of Jacob, that were born to him in Mesopotamia of Syria. 27 And he came to Isaac his father in Mambre, the city of Arbee, this is Hebron: wherein Abraham and Isaac sojourned. 28 And the days of Isaac were a hundred and eighty years. 29 And being spent with age he died, and was gathered to his people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.

1 And these are the generations of Esau, the same is Edom. 2 Esau took wives of the daughters of Chanaan: Ada the daughter of Elon the Hethite, and Oolibama the daughter of Ana, the daughter of Sebeon the Hevite: 3 And Basemath the daughter of Ismael, sister of Nabajoth. 4 And Ada bore Eliphaz: Basemath bore Rahuel: 5 Oolibama bore Jehus and Ihelon and Core. These are the sons of Esau, that were born to him in the land of Chanaan.

2 "Ada"... These wives of Esau are called by other names, Gen. 26. But it was very common amongst the ancients for the same persons to have two names, as Esau himself was also called Edom.
