Who was Dishon's father?


These are the sons of Seir the Horite, who inhabited the land; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah, And Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan. Genesis 36:20-21

And the sons of Seir; Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah, and Dishon, and Ezar, and Dishan. 1 Chronicles 1:38


These are the children of Zibeon; both Ajah, and Anah. And the children of Anah were these; Dishon, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah. Genesis 36:24-25

The sons of Zibeon; Aiah, and Anah. The sons of Anah; Dishon. 1 Chronicles 1:40-41

This genealogy is pretty messed up. Zibeon is Dishon's brother and his grandfather according. But who knows? Maybe they're both true.

Thanks! Just for redundancy, the first chapter of 1 Chronicles says the same things. (v.38/41) I’m gonna continue looking through Genesis 36 to see if I can spot anything else.

Thanks again, SandColoredSky!
I've added the verses from 1 Chronicles to the contradiction.
