15. And these are the kings that reigned in Edom before there reigned any king over the children of Israel [until this day] in the land of Edom. 16. And Bâlâq, 1 the son of Beor, reigned in Edom, and the name of his city was Danâbâ. 2 17. And Bâlâq died, and Jobab, the son of Zârâ of Bôsêr, 3 reigned in his stead. 18. And Jobab died, and ’Asâm, 4 of the land of Têmân, reigned in his stead. 19. And ’Asâm died, and ’Adâth, 5 the son of Barad, 6 who slew Midian in the field of Moab, reigned in his stead, and the name of his city was Avith. 20. And ’Adâth died, and Salman, 7 from ’Amâsêqâ, 8 reigned in his stead. 21. And Salman died, and Saul of Râ’abôth 9 (by the) river, reigned in his stead. 22. And Saul died, and Ba’êlûnân, 10 the son of Achbor, reigned in his stead. 23. And Ba’êlûnân, the son of Achbor, died, and ’Adâth 11 reigned in his stead, and the name of his wife was Maiṭabîth, 12 the daughter of Mâṭarat, 13 the daughter of Mêtabêdzâ’ab. 14 24.
