In the Book of Genesis Aholibamah (אָהֳלִיבָמָה "My tabernacle of/is height/exaltation", Standard Hebrew Oholivama, Tiberian Hebrew ʼOhŏlîḇāmā), is the name given to Judith, the daughter of Beeri and Anah (Gen. 26:34; 36:2), when she became the wife of Esau. A district among the mountains of Edom, probably near Mount Hor, was called after her name, or it may be that she received her name from the district. From her descended three tribes of Edomites, founded by her three sons.
