Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֱמֹרִי (according to the probable conjecture of J. Simonis, prop. mountaineer, from the unused אֱמֹר elevation, mountain, see under אָמַר No. 1 ), an Amorite, collect. Amorites (LXX. Ἀμοῤῥαῖοι), a nation of Canaan, and apparently the greatest and most powerful of them all, and whose name is sometimes used in a wider sense, so as to include all the nations of Canaan, Genesis 15:16, 48:22 Amos 2:9, 10 Deuteronomy 1:20. A part of them dwelt in the mountainous region which was afterwards occupied by the tribe of Judah, where they were subject to five kings, Genesis 14:7, 13 Genesis 14:13; Numbers 13:29 another part of them lived beyond Jordan, to the north of Arnon (Numbers 21:13), as far as Jabbok (Numbers 21:24), and even beyond this river (Numbers 32:39); this part of them were subject to two kings, one of whom ruled in Heshbon, the other in Bashan (Deuteronomy 4:47; Joshua 2:10).
