Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
DEHAITES (AV [Note: Authorized Version.] Dehavites , Ezra 4:9 ). The Dehaites were among the peoples settled in Samaria by Osnappar, i.e. probably the Assyr. [Note: Assyrian.] king Ashurbanipal. The name has been connected with that of a nomadic Persian tribe, the Daoi , mentioned in Herod. i. 125, or with the name of the city Du’-Ã»a , mentioned on Assyr. [Note: Assyrian.] contract-tablets; but these identifications are very doubtful.
