Holman Bible Dictionary
Zibeon is identified as a Hivite (Genesis 36:2 ), but is listed among the Horites in Genesis 36:20 ,Genesis 36:20,36:29 . In addition, the Septuagint or earliest Greek translation reads “Horite” for “Hivite” in some texts (Genesis 34:2; Joshua 9:7 ). This may indicate an early linguistic confusion of “Horite” and “Hivite.” It is unlikely that the two are identical, although the exact relationship is unclear. See Horites .
