Amalekites were the seed of Isaac and Abraham. Of course they were Semites and Hebrews, they were the descendants of Abraham. Amalek was one of the grandsons of Esau.
Esau's son is Elphaz, his daughter in law is Timna and the grandson of Esau is Amalek.
GENESIS 036:012 Timna was concubine to Eliphaz Esau's son; and she bare to Eliphaz Amalek: these were the sons of Adah Esau's wife.
GENESIS 036:016 Duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Amalek: these are the dukes that came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these were the sons of Adah.
The Amalekites existed long before the grandson (Amalek) so the Amalekites were not named after Abraham's grandson. The event in the next verse was recorded at the time Sodom still existed., BUT the descendants of Abraham's grandson were part of the Arabs (Amalekites).
GENESIS 014:007 And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that lived in Hazezontamar.
When you see the affix ITE, it means of or from. The Amalekites who existed before Esau would have taken on the name of one of their ancestors ( As Israel-ITE is taken from Israel ).
Family names were (as now) given after some admired relative or ancestor. Esau was the son of Isaac and Rachel. His concubine Timna. A concubine appears to be a sex partner of those outside of one's own clan. Concubines are also noted as wives. When ever you see the Israelites producing their children with concubines, look to see that the mothers of those Israelites are non Israelite Arabs.
The Amalekites existed before Amalek (son of Esau). The descendants of Esau's sons are found in the tribe of the Amalekites. The son of Esau was probably given the name Amalek after one of his ancestors on his mother's side of the family.
Make note of the Israelites who were given the names of the non Israelite Arabs. Children's names are/were given after the relatives or ancestors of either the father OR the mother. When you see Israelites named after Hittites, Havites, Moabites, Syrians, Chaldeans, Ammorites ... the books of numbers and chronicles are one of the first place to track them.
We are not the product of any single ancestor but we are the product of every ancestor we ever had. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were trivial contributors in the ancestors of the Israelites. Jacob was the only ancestor that made them Israelites and he was a composite of Chaldeans and Syrians. The Israelites were a composite of every ancestor they ever had and every ancestor they ever had was NOTHING other than a pot luck of Arabs.
As you track the descendants of Esau in the tribes of the Amalekites and Edomites, know those Amalekites and Edomites are the descendants of Isaac and Abraham.
