Perizzites

Additional Links

The ancient inhabitants of Palestine, mingled with the Canaanites. There is also a great probability that they themselves were Canaanites, but, having no fixed habitations, were wandering about here and there, and scattered over all the country. Thus, in the time of Abraham and Lot, the Canaanite and Perizzite were in the land, Genesis 13:7; Joshua 17:15 . Solomon subdued the remains of the Canaanites and Perizzites, which the children of Israel had not rooted out, and made them tributary to him, 1 Kings 9:20-21; 2 Chronicles 8:7 . There still remained some of this people as late as the time of Ezra 9:1 .
