Genesis 15:20 Meaning and Commentary

Genesis 15:20

And the Hittites
Who had their name from Heth, a son of Canaan, see ( Genesis 10:15 ) ; they dwelt about Hebron, in the south of the land of Canaan:

and the Perizzites;
these dwelt in the wood country of the land, ( Joshua 17:15 ) ; and seem to have their name from dwelling in villages, and at a distance from towns and cities, and were a boorish and uncivilized people, see ( Genesis 13:7 ) :

and the Rephaims;
or "giants", as the Targums of Onkelos, and Jonathan; they dwelt near the Perizzites, ( Joshua 17:15 ) ; of these see ( Genesis 14:5 ) .
