Bible Names A-G: Anah


Anah in Easton's Bible Dictionary speech. (1.) 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 (Gen. 36:20, 29; 1 Chr. 1:38). (2.) One of the two sons of Zibeon the Horite, and father of Esau's wife Aholibamah (Gen. 36:18, 24).

Anah in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 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.

Anah in Naves Topical Bible 1. Son of Seir Ge 36:20,24,29; 1Ch 1:38 -2. Father-in-law or mother-in-law of Esau. An error of copyist, probably, calls him daughter, instead of son, of Zibeon, the Hivite Ge 36:2,14,24 Called also BEERI Ge 26:34

Anah in Smiths Bible Dictionary (one who answers), the son of Zibeon and father of Aholibamah, one of Esau's wives. Ge 36:2,14,25 He is supposed to have discovered the "hot springs" (not "mules," as in the Authorized Version) in the desert as he fed the asses of Zibeon his father. (B.C. 1797.)

Anah in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE a'-na (`anah, meaning uncertain; a Horite clan-name (Gen 36)): (1) Mother of Aholibamah, one of the wives of Esau and daughter of Zibeon (compare Gen 36:2,14,18,25). The Septuagint, the Samaritan Pentateuch, and the Peshitta read "son," identifying this Anah with number 3 (see below); Gen 36:2, read (ha-chori), for (ha-chiwwi). (2) Son of Seir, the Horite, and brother of Zibeon; one of the chiefs of the land of Edom (compare Gen 36:20,21 = 1 Ch 1:38). Seir is elsewhere the name of the land (compare Gen 14:6; Isa 21:11); but here the country is personified and becomes the mythical ancestor of the tribes inhabiting it. (3) Son of Zibeon, "This is Anah who found the hot springs in the wilderness" (compare Gen 36:24 = 1 Ch 1:40,41) The word ha-yemim, occurs only in this passage and is probably corrupt. Ball (Sacred Books of the Old Testament, Genesis, critical note 93) suggests that it is a corruption of we- hemam (compare Gen 36:22) in an earlier verse. Jerome, in his commentary on Gen 36:24, assembles the following definitions of the word gathered from Jewish sources. (1) "seas" as though yammim; (2) "hot springs" as though hammim; (3) a species of ass, yemim; (4) "mules." This last explanation was the one most frequently met with in Jewish lit; the tradition ran that Anah was the first to breed the mule, thus bringing into existence an unnatural species. As a punishment, God created the deadly water-snake, through the union of the common viper with the Libyan lizard (compare Gen Rabbah 82 15, Yer. Ber 1 12b; Babylonian Pes 54a, Ginzberg, Monatschrift, XLII, 538-39). The descent of Anah is thus represented in the three ways pointed out above as the text stands. If, however, we accept the reading ben, for bath, in the first case, Aholibamah will then be an unnamed daughter of the Anah of Gen 36:24, not the Aholibamah, daughter of Anah of 36:25 (for the Anah of this verse is evidently the one of 36:20, not the Anah of 36:24). Another view is that the words, "the daughter of Zibeon," are a gloss, inserted by one who mistakenly identified the Anah of 36:25 with the Anah of 36:24; in this event, Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah, will be the one mentioned in 36:25. The difference between (2) and (3) is to be explained on the basis of a twofold tradition. Anah was originally a sub-clan of the clan known as Zibeon, and both were "sons of Seir"-- i.e. Horites.

Anah in Wikipedia In the Book of Genesis, there are two men and one woman named Anah. In Genesis 6:2,14,18,25 , Anah is a daughter of Zibeon, and her daughter Aholibamah is a wife of Esau. In Genesis 36:20,29 and 1 Chronicles 1:38 , Anah is a son of Seir and a brother of Zibeon chief of the Horites. Some authorities claim this is a tribal name, not a personal name. In Genesis 36:24 and 1 Chronicles 1:40-41 , Anah is a son of Zibeon, and is famed for discovering hot springs.
