 36:5
36:5 Oholibamah bore Yeush, Yalam, and Korach.

The above are Esau's sons who were born in the land of Canaan.
Ve'Aholivamah yaldah et-Ye'ush ve'et-Yalam ve'et-Korach eleh bney Esav asher yuldu-lo be'erets Kna'an.




Commentary:

Yeush
  See Genesis 36:14, 18.

Korach
  Although Korach was a son of Oholibamah, some identify him with Chief Korach, son of Eliphaz, a son of Adah (Genesis 36:16). This would be because Eliphaz fathered Korach by committing adultery with Oholibamah (Bereshith Rabbah 82; Rashi). Others say that there were two individuals with the name Korach (Rashi, Sotah 13a, s.v. Shloshim; Rashbam on Genesis 36:16. Cf. Ibn Ezra).
