  1. One of the wives of Esau. In Genesis 26:34 she is described as "the daughter of Elon the Hittite." According to the same source, Esau had another wife, Mahalath, the daughter of Ishmael, the sister of Nebajoth but in Genesis 36:2 the first of Esau's wives is stated to be Adah, "the daughter of Elon the Hittite," and Bashemath is described as the daughter of Ishmael, the sister of Nebajoth. The Samaritan text avoids the conflict between the different narratives by substituting Mahalath for Bashemath in Genesis 36

  2. A daughter of Solomon, and wife of Ahimaaz. The latter was one of the twelve purveyors for the royal household, and was assigned to the district of Naphtali (IKings 4:15).
