Hittites - Apeople dwelling principally in the northern and eastern parts of Canaan,#Josh 1:4|,whom the Israelites, contrary to their duty, suffered to live amongstthem, #Judg 3:5|, who afterwards grew numerous and potent, and, it maybe, sent out colonies (after the manner of the ancient times) into someparts of Syria and Arabia. And possibly, these kings of theHittites may be some of those kings of Arabia, ver.#15|.
