About Oholibamah Judith

Oholibamah is the only woman in Genesis whose mother, Anah, is figured in the line of descent in place of the father. Anah was the daughter of Zibeon.

Other scholarship translates ב עֵשָׂו לָקַח אֶת-נָשָׁיו, מִבְּנוֹת כְּנָעַן: אֶת-עָדָה, בַּת-אֵילוֹן הַחִתִּי, וְאֶת-אָהֳלִיבָמָה בַּת-עֲנָה, בַּת-צִבְעוֹן הַחִוִּי. (Genesis 36:2) differently. The sentance reads "Esau took his wives from the daughters of Canaan: Ada, daughter of Eilon the Hitite, and Oholibamah daughter of Anah daughter of Zibeon the Hivite"; it is argued that "daughter of... daughter of..." is a work-around for the lack of an equivalent of grand-daughter, making Anah a SON of Zibeon, and Beeri his wife.
