kad´mon - ı̄t ( קרמני , ḳadhmōnı̄ ; Κεδμωναῖοι , Kedmōnaı́oi , signifies "the Easterner," or, less probably, "one of the ancient race"): The Kadmonites are mentioned in Genesis 15:19 along with the Kenites and Kenizzites of Edom, and are doubtless the same as "the children of the east," whose wisdom was celebrated ( 1 Kings 4:30 ). קרמה , ḳēdhemāh , "the East," was a son of Ishmael (Genesis 25:15; compare Genesis 25:6 ). In an Egyptian story describing the adventures of a political refugee who fled from Egypt in the time of the XII th Dynasty, it is said that he found a refuge in Canaan in the land of Kaduma or Kedem.
