Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

כְּנַעַן pr. name

(1)  Canaan, a son of Ham, ancestor of the nation of the Canaanites, Genesis 9:18, seq.; 10:6.

(2) the land of the Canaanites (Exodus 15:15, fully אֶרֶץ כְּנַעַן Genesis 13:12, 33:18 ), and the nation (Judges 3:1, with masc. Hosea 12:8); pr. the depressed, low, region (from the root כָּנַע, with the addition of ־ַ־ן, as in אֶתְנַן), opp. to the loftier country אֲרָם (see כְּנַעֲנִי No. 1 ). [But this name was taken from Canaan, the son of Ham, the ancestor of the Canaanites.] It specially denotes

(a) the land on this side Jordan, as opposed to the land of Gilead, Numbers 33:51; Joshua 22:9.

(b) Phœnicia, Isaiah 23:11, i.e. the northern part of Canaan, situated at the base of Lebanon; the inhabitants of which call themselves כנען upon their coins (see my Comment. on Isa. loc. cit.; Gesch. der Heb. Sprache, p. 16, 227); by the Greeks they are called Φοίνικες. The Pœni, also a colony of the Phœnicians, retained this ancient name, as we learn from Augustin (Expos. Ep. ad Romanos) in these words, “Interrogati rustici nostri,” i.e. Hipponenses, “quid sint? punicּ respondentes Chanani, corrupt̯ scilicet, ut in talibus solet, un̯ litter̯, quid aliud respondent, quam Chanan i?”

(c) Philistia, Zephaniah 2:5, כְּנַעַן אֶרֶץ פְּלשְׁתִּים.-שְׂפַת כְּנַעַן the language of Canaan, i.e. Hebrew, which the Canaanites and Hebrews used, Isaiah 19:18.

(3) for אִישׁ כְּנַעַן a Canaanite, Hosea 12:8 hence any merchant. Isaiah 23:8, כִּנְעָנֶיחָ “her merchants.” Comp. Zephaniah 1:11; Ezekiel 17:4.
