Esau was Korah’s father.

These were the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah and the [e]granddaughter of Zibeon: she bore to Esau, Jeush and Jalam and Korah..” (Genesis 36:14)

These are the sons of Esau’s wife Oholibamah: chief Jeush, chief Jalam, chief Korah. These are the chiefs [i]descended from Esau’s wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah.” (Genesis 36:18)

The sons of Esau were Eliphaz, Reuel, Jeush, Jalam and Korah.” (1 Chronicles 1:35)

Eliphaz was Korah’s father.

These are the chiefs of the sons of Esau. The sons of Eliphaz, the firstborn of Esau, are chief Teman, chief Omar, chief Zepho, chief Kenaz, 16 chief Korah, chief Gatam, chief Amalek. These are the chiefs descended from Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Adah.” (Genesis 36:15-16)
