Anakim (ăn'a-kĭm), long-necked, i.e., men of tall stature, Anak, the son of Arba, had three sons, who were giants, and were founders of a Canaanitish tribe, famous for their stature and fierceness. The seat of the tribe before the invasion by the Hebrews was in the vicinity of Hebron. They were nearly extirpated by the Hebrews so that only a few remained afterwards in the cities of the Philistines, Numbers 13:22; Deuteronomy 9:2; Joshua 11:21-22; Joshua 14:15; and Jeremiah 47:5, which in the Septuagint reads: "O remnant of the Anakim" that is cut off.
