KADMONITES . One of the nations whose land was promised to Abram’s seed ( Genesis 15:19 ). Their habitat was probably in the region of the Dead Sea. The fact that Kedemah is said to be a son of Ishmael ( Genesis 25:15 ) renders it likely that they were Ishmaelite Arabs. Ewald, however, regarded Qadmoni as equivalent to B e ne Qedhem (‘Sons of the East’) which seems to have been a general name applied to the Keturahite tribes (see Genesis 25:1-6 ).
