Hebrew - Heth
Heth -

Son of Canaan, Ham's son; from whence sprung the Hittites, occupying the hill country of Judah near Hebron. But the race enlarged its borders so that they with the Amorites represent all Canaan (Joshua 1:4; Ezekiel 16:3, "thy father was an Amorite, thy mother an Hittite".) See Genesis 23:3-20. Esau's marriage to one of the daughters of Heth "grieved the mind" of Isaac and Rebekah, for their morals were lax and their worship idolatrous (Genesis 26:34-35; Genesis 27:46). In Solomon's and in Joram's times there were independent Hittite kings (1 Kings 10:29; 2 Kings 7:6). In the Egyptian monuments they are called the Kheta, who made themselves masters of Syria.
