Kenaz

Additional Links

1. Son of Eliphaz, and grandson of Esau; one of the dukes of Edom (Genesis 36:11,16,42). His clan, called "the Kenizzite" (), is mentioned once only, after the Kenites (Genesis 15:19). 2. A descendant of Judah, and father of Othniel (1 Chronicles 4:13). "Father" here certainly means "ancestor"; for Othniel's elder brother, Caleb (Judges 1:13), is several times called "the Kenizzite" (A. V. "Kenezite," Numbers 32:12; Joshua 14:6,14), that is, "descendant of Kenaz." 3. A grandson of Caleb (1 Chronicles 4:15).
