Numbers 21:3  (King James Version)
And the LORD hearkened to the voice of Israel, and delivered up the Canaanites; and they utterly destroyed them and their cities: and he called the name of the place Hormah.

Psalms 10:17 ; 91:15 102:17

and they utterly
{Wyyacharem,} rather with the LXX. [kai anethematisen,]
"and they anathematised, or devoted them to destruction;" for it is certain that these Canaanites and Arad were not utterly destroyed till the time of Joshua
( Joshua 12:14 .)

the name
14:45 Deuteronomy 1:44 ; 1 Samuel 30:30
{Hormah,} that is, utter destruction. {Chormah,} rather a devoting to destruction: so LXX. [Anathema,] and Tremellius, {devotio sive anathema.}
