ṓ - hol - i - bā´ma , - hol - i - ba´ma ( אהליבמה , 'ohŏlı̄bhāmāh , "tent of the high place"):

(1) One of Esau's wives, and a daughter of Anah the Hivite (Genesis 36:2 , Genesis 36:5 ). It is strange that she is not named along with Esau's other wives in either Genesis 28:9 or Genesis 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 (Genesis 36:41 ; 1 Chronicles 1:52 ).
