The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleGenesis 36:41
Duke Aholibamah, Duke Elah, Duke Pinon.
] The former is the
name of a woman, (Genesis 36:2,25) ; here the name of a man, and also of the
place of which he was duke; for Jerom observes F17, that Oolibama is a
city of the princes of Edom, and who also makes mention of Elath, a
country of the princes of Edom, and a city of Esau, ten miles from
Petra to the east F18, and the seat of Duke Pinon was very probably
Phinon, which lay between Petra and Zoar F19.
