I don't think it is a html question! Genesis is built up by the 'toledot' form. With Gen. 37:2 starts the toledot of Jacob. So, I think Gen 37:1 belongs to the toledot of Esau, Gen. 36. I'm studying the life and significance of Esau in Scripture and I discovered that Gen. 36 tells the history of the natural human (in contrast to the spiritual human). The end of Gen. 36 speaks about the chiefs of Edomite, and this is the time of 'the Millennium'. In the Millennium, Jacob owns the promised land, so Gen 37:1 says: Jacob dwelt in the land of his father's sojournings, in the land of Canaan. But in the time of Jacob, he didn't posses Canaan! Not only his father Isaac, but he also. So, I conclude that this verse also sign for the Messianic period of the Millennium.
