Among the many tribal groups that occupied Canaan before the Israelites dispossessed them were the people known as Hivites (Genesis 10:15-17; Exodus 3:8; Exodus 23:28; Deuteronomy 7:1; Joshua 3:10). They lived mainly in the mountain country of northern Palestine and Lebanon (Joshua 11:3; Judges 3:3; 2 Samuel 24:6-7), though some lived in Shechem and others as far south as Gibeon (Genesis 34:2; Joshua 9:3; Joshua 9:7; Joshua 11:19). They were among the many Canaanite tribal peoples used as slaves in Solomon’s building programs (1 Kings 9:20-21). Like other Canaanite groups they were eventually absorbed into Israel.
