Carites

Additional Links

CARITES occurs in the Kethîbh of the Heb. text and margin of RV [Note: Revised Version.] in 2 Samuel 20:23 , where the Kerç has Cherethites , and in RV [Note: Revised Version.] of 2 Kings 11:4 , where the AV [Note: Authorized Version.] has captains (RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.] executioners ). The Carites were possibly Phil. mercenaries from Caria, as the Cherethites were from Crete.
