.... In biblical tradition, the Canaanites are believed to have descended from Canaan, youngest son of Ham, one of the three sons of Noah ( Gn . 9.14, 10.6). They include several peoples or tribes, but always numbered among them were the Canaanites proper, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Jebusites, and Hivites. Sometimes Girgashites are listed; occasionally other tribes, such as Sidonites, Hamathites, Refaim, and Kenites are named as well. Noah cursed Canaan for the depravity of Ham his father ( Gn . 9.24–25), destining him to be subjugated by Shem—thereby...

...in the Temple. Even with the Temple gone, it endures. For Christians, Origen expressed the cleansing of the land allegorically: “It is in us where all these peoples of vices live, which attack the soul permanently and ceaselessly. It is in us that the Cannanites exist, the Perizzites, here are the Jebusites ( Hom . I 7; Schwienhorst-Schönberger, 2012 , p. 469). The “collective punishment” of Achan’s family in Joshua 7 must also be explained by this kind of mythical thinking. It blatantly violates Deuteronomy 24:16 : “Parents shall not be put to death...

...nations. In Deuteronomy 7:1 , a text from the postexilic period, one reads When Yahweh your God brings you into the land that you are about to enter and occupy, and he clears away many nations before you—the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than yourselves. … It is quite obvious that the nations mentioned here are not historical, even though some historical memory might have been preserved in ancient Israel’s cultural memory. Rather, they serve as...

...its men. Later the remaining sons of Jacob plunder the city, taking with them all the wealth and flocks along with the women and children. Jacob decries this devious deed: “You have brought trouble on me by making me odious to the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites and the Perizzites; my numbers are few, and if they gather themselves against me and attack me, I shall be destroyed, both I and my household” ( Gen 34:30 ). The tale ends with a rhetorical response from Jacob’s sons: “Should our sister be treated like a whore?” This late account prepares the...

...with an expansive interpretation of proscribed groups and the consequences for intermarriage. Upon his arrival in the land, Ezra hears that some “have not separated themselves from the peoples of the lands, whose detestable practices are like the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, and Egyptians, and the Amorites” ( Ezra 9:1 , lit.). This list is a combination of several biblical texts: the first four along with the Amorites appear in Deuteronomy 7:1–4 as nations in the promised land with whom the community...

...as one who shares the implied author’s cultural knowledge, catches the allusions, and is able to process the story just as it is told. For instance, when Gen 13:7 states, “At that time the Canaanites and the Perizzites lived in the land,” actual readers may infer that the implied reader no longer lived surrounded by Canaanites and Perizzites but was aware that those tribes had once existed. Of all these distinctions, that between the implied reader and actual readers is perhaps easiest to discern—wherever we find gaps between knowledge and assumptions...

First is the lists of nations, which includes the Hittites with the Canaanites, Jebusites (an Amorite tribe?), Hivites (Cilicians), Amorites, Perizzites, and Girgashites (see, e.g., Deut 20:16–17 ). Although incorporated into the biblical text only later, these lists retain a historical memory of the earlier period, which was preserved in the Canaanite traditions upon which the Israelites were later heavily to depend. The ...

So in the case of the exodus event, the true minjung were the people of the Canaanites, Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, whose homes and lives the God of the Israelites destroyed? Such considerations may provide a clearer picture of Korean interpretation, just as the front side of this tapestry reveals creative art already in process. [ See also Asian...

...the Apiru as described in the Amarna letters (EA 246, 254, 289). The stories of Abraham emphasized that the population was Canaanite ( Gen 12:6 ), while the stories of Jacob emphasized that the population of Shechem was a complex ethnic foundation of Hivites, Canaanites, and Perizzites ( Gen 34:2 , 30 ). The book of Genesis describes a good relationship between the families of the patriarchs Abraham and Jacob and the people of Shechem. Local residents sell to the family of Jacob a plot of land east of the city and its environs, and Dinah, the daughter of...

... Hom. Josh. 26–33). For Origen the order to put the residents of the land under the ban was a figurative way of saying that the Christian must purge the self of all that would hinder pure devotion to God. Thus Origen said, “within us are the Canaanites; within us are the Perizzites; here (within) are the Jebusites” (Origen, Hom. Josh. 34; see also Hoffman, 1999 , p. 197). Although many modern scholars reject Origen’s interpretation as an attempt to countermand the clear message of the text, there is good reason to affirm his interpretation, at least...

...(cf. also verses 2–3 ): the Lord left those nations, wishing to test Israel through them, “whether they will keep the way of the Lord to walk in it, as their fathers kept it, or not.” A different reply is given in Kings: “All the people who were left of the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites…in the land,” Israelites simply were not able completely to destroy them. Upon those “did Solomon levy a tribute of forced labor ( 1 Kgs 9:20–21 ).” This statement appears also in the report about Solomon’s fortification of some cities (Gezer, Lower...

Yahweh promises the Jews the lands of “the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaim, Amorites, Cannanites, Gigrashites, Hivites, and Jebusites” (Genesis 15:19–21). Much of early Jewish history consists of the ensuing, often exceedingly bloody, battles between the Jews and these various peoples. The book of Joshua in the Hebrew Bible records the story...

...as analogous to Israelites fleeing bondage in Egypt. Their arrival in the New World resonated with Israelites settling in the promised land. Such readings led Anglo-American Protestants to compare indigenous Americans to peoples in the Bible, including Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, and Canaanites—all groups that “the Lord blotted out so that Israel could enjoy a land flowing with milk and honey.” 40 This new biblical comparison bolstered Anglo-American Protestants’ belief in their own religious and racial superiority and justified violence against...
