The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleGenesis 36:35
And Husham died…
As is thought, about A. M. 2219, above
forty years after the death of Abraham, as computed by the above
and Hadad the son of Bedad (who smote Midian in the field of Moab)
reigned in his stead:
who he or his father were we have no other
account, nor of this warlike action of his; probably the Midianites
came out to invade him, hearing of which, he went out against them, and
met with him in the fields of Moab, which were near to Midian, and
fought them and conquered them: Jarchi says, the Midianites came out to
make war against the Moabites, and the king of Edom went out to help
the Moabites, and hence, he says, we learn, that Midian and Moab were
near each other; and in the days of Balaam they made peace, that they
might combine against Israel: this battle is supposed to be fought in
the twelfth year of his reign; and it is thought to be in his reign
that Esau came with his family and dwelt in Seir F12; though some place
it later, either in the following reign, or in that of his successors
and the name of his city [was] Avith:
where it was is not certain.
