zū´zim ( זוּזים , zuuzı̄m ; ( ἔθνη ἰσχυρά , éthnē ischurá , "strong nations." So Jerome in Quaest. Hebr.: genres fortes ): A people conquered by Chedorlaomer ( Genesis 14:5 ). They dwelt in Ham, a region not otherwise known but, from the connection, inferred to be East of the Jordan. It may also be inferred that they were a race of giants. They were perhaps to be identified with the Zamzummim.
