Genesis 10:15

And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn
Canaan is the fourth son of Ham; the posterity of Phut, his third son, are omitted: the firstborn of Canaan was Sidon, from whom the city of Sidon had its name, being either built by himself, who called it after his own name, or by some of his posterity, who called it so in memory of their ancestor: it was a very ancient city, more ancient than Tyre, for that was built by the Sidonians; Homer makes mention of it, but not of Tyre: it is now called Said, as it was in the times of Benjamin of Tudela {f}. Justin F7 says it had its name from the plenty of fish on its coasts; but, since Canaan had a son of this name, it was no doubt so called from him.

And Heth;
the father of the Hittites, who dwelt about Hebron, on the south of the land of Canaan; for when Sarah died, the sons of Heth were in possession of it, (Genesis 23:2,3) of this race were the Anakim, or giants, drove out from hence by Caleb, (Numbers 13:22) (Joshua 15:13,14) and these Hittites became terrible to men in later times, as appears from (2 Kings 7:6) hence (htx) signifies to terrify, affright, and throw into a consternation.
