Dictionary

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Anah
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 ).

American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Anah
The father of Aholibamah, one of Esau's wives. While feeding his father's asses in the desert, he is said to have found the "mules" Genesis 36:24 . But the Hebrew word is suppose to mean rather "warm springs;" and such springs are found on the eastern coast of the Dead sea, which was not far from the dwellings of the Seirites, to whom Anah belonged. In this region was a place afterwards celebrated among the Greeks and Romans for its warm springs, and called by them Callirrhoe.

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Anah
Speech.
One of the sons of Seir, and head of an Idumean tribe, called a Horite, as in course of time all the branches of this tribe were called from their dwelling in caves in Mount Seir (Genesis 36:20,29 ; 1 Chronicles 1:38 ).



One of the two sons of Zibeon the Horite, and father of Esau's wife Aholibamah (Genesis 36:18,24 ).

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Anah
Son of Zibeon, son of Seir the Horite; father of Aholibamah, Esau's wife (Genesis 36:2; Genesis 36:14; Genesis 36:20; Genesis 36:25). (See AHOLIBAMAH.) "Aholibamah, daughter of Ahab, daughter of Zibeon," is tantamount to granddaughter, i.e. descendant from Zibeon; not that Anah was "daughter of Zibeon," for Genesis 36:20 calls him" son (i.e. grandson) of Seir." Those descendants alone of Seir are enumerated who, being heads of tribes, were connected with Edom; so Anah is mentioned because he was head of a tribe, independently of his father.

As sprung from Seir, he is called a "Horite," i.e. a dweller in caves or troglodyte; also a "Hivite," a branch of the Canaanites; also he is named "Beeri the Hittite," the "Hittites" being the general name for "Canaanites" (Genesis 26:34). "Hirite" is thought by some a transcriber's error for "Horite." instead of "mules" (Genesis 36:24) translate yemin "water springs"; not as Luther, "he invented mules" (Leviticus 19:19), but "discovered hotsprings" (so Vulgate and Syriac vers.) of which there are several S.E. of the Dead Sea, e.g. Callirrhoe in the wady Zerka Maein; another in wady el Ahsa, and in wady Hamad; whence he got the surname Beeri, or "the spring man." Judith is the same as Aholibamah.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Anah
(ay' nah) Personal name meaning, “answer.” 1. Mother of Oholibamah, a wife of Esau (Genesis 36:2 ), and grandmother of Jeush, Jalam, and Korah (Genesis 36:14 ). RSV reads “daughter” as “son.” This would allow this Anah to be related to or identified with Anah 2 below. In Genesis 36:24 Anah is noted for having found “mules in the wilderness” (KJV) or “hot springs in the desert” (NIV; compare NAS; RSV). Here Zibeon is still Anah's father as in Genesis 36:2 , but this Anah is masculine. In Genesis 36:29 Anah is a Horite chief living in Seir. 2. A son of Seir and brother of Zibeon ( Genesis 36:20 ).



Morrish Bible Dictionary - Anah
