OHOLIBAMAH

o-hol-i-ba'-ma, o-hol-i-ba'-ma ('oholibhamah, "tent of the high place"):
(1) One of Esau's wives, and a daughter of Anah the Hivite (Gen 36:2,5). It is strange that she is not named along with Esau's other wives in either Gen 28:9 or 26:30. Various explanations have been given, but none of them is satisfactory. There is probably some error in the text.
(2) An Edomite chief (Gen 36:41; 1 Ch 1:52).
