One of the wives of Esau, the daughter of Ishmael and the mother of Reuel. Genesis 36:3,4 . In the earlier narrative, Genesis 26:34 ; Genesis 28:9 , the names of Esau's wives differ from those given in Genesis 36:2,3 . The women may have had two names, or another name have been given them on their marriage. It appears probable that Bashemath, daughter of Elon, is the same as ADAH, daughter of Elon; and that Bashemath, daughter of Ishmael, is the same as MAHALATH, daughter of Ishmael. JUDITH, daughter of Beeri, may be the same as AHOLIBAMAH, daughter of Anah, if Beeri is her father's name and Anah her mother's.
