Hebrew - Hivites
Hivites -

One of the original tribes scattered over Palestine, from Hermon to Gibeon in the south. The name is interpreted as "midlanders" or "villagers" (Genesis 10:17; 1 Chronicles 1:15). They were probably a branch of the Hittites. At the time of Jacob's return to Canaan, Hamor the Hivite was the "prince of the land" (Genesis 24:2-28).

They are next mentioned during the Conquest (Joshua 9:7; 11:19). They principally inhabited the northern confines of Western Palestine (Joshua 11:3; Judges 3:3). A remnant of them still existed in the time of Solomon (1 Kings 9:20).
