    Timna in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 1. Eliphaz' concubine, mother of Amalek (Genesis 36:12; Genesis 36:22); in 1 Chronicles 1:36 Timna is not, as apparently, a son of Eliphaz. Probably sister of Lotan, daughter of the Horite Seir.

These variations are to be expected when the origin of genealogies is recalled. (In Genesis, English Versions of the Bible read, contrary to rule, "Timnah.")
