The Edomites

The Bible refers to Esau's descendents as "Edomim" or "Edomites". The Edomite people are known from history to have been a Semitic-speaking tribal group inhabiting the Negev Desert and the Aravah valley of what is now southern Israel and Jordan. According to Genesis, Esau's descendents were said to have settled in this land after displacing the Horites. The reddish sandstone of the region may be an alternative explanation for the nation's name to that found in Genesis. Their homeland was also called the land of Seir; Mount Seir appears to have been strongly identified with them and may have been a cultic site. The Edomites may have been connected with the Shasu and Shutu, nomadic raiders mentioned in Egyptian sources. Indeed, a letter from an Egyptian scribe at a border fortress in the Wadi Tumilat during the reign of Merneptah reports movement of nomadic "shasu-tribes of Edom" to watering holes in Egyptian territory

Since their formation in 1948, the Israeli Defence Forces are using, to denote the ranks of their senior officers, the above-mentioned Edomite title "Aluf" (plural "Alufim"). As noted, in its original context the term has been variously translated as "clans", "chiefs", "generals" or "dukes". See Aluf.

Follow the trail of the serpent. You'll find this sin-sick world is run by criminals. Sons of Cain.
Brother Branham said, "Satan hates two books of the Bible more than all others . . . he is always attacking the Book of Genesis and the Book of Revelation. In both of these books we find Satan's origin, his awful ways and his destruction. That is why he attacks them. He hates to be exposed, ("He who controls the past, controls the future"), and in those books he is exposed for exactly what he is. Jesus said about Satan, "He has no part in Me and I have no part in him." The devil would like to prove that different; but he cannot, so he does all he can (to hide the true identity of the Serpent's seed, to steal the birthrights of Jacob/Israel, Jesus Christ and His Church), to destroy confidence in the Word. But when the church disbelieves Satan and believes the Spirit's revelation of the Word, the gates of hell cannot prevail against her" (Seven Church Ages, 14:4)
