Horim

Horim

and Horites (descendants of Hori ), the aboriginal inhabitants of Mount Seir, ( Genesis 14:6 ) and probably allied to the Emim and Raphaim. The name Horite appears to have been derived from their habits as "cave-dwellers" Their excavated dwellings are still found in hundreds in the sandstone cliffs and mountains of Edom, and especially in Petra.
