* the Hittites.
With respect to the situation of these nations in the land of
Canaan, Calmet remarks, that the Canaanites chiefly inhabited
Phoenecia; the Hittites, the mountains south of the promised
land; the Hivites, mount Ebal, and Gerizim, and towards
Hermon; the Girgashites, beyond Jordan, towards the lake of
Gennesareth, the Jebusistes, about Jerusalem; the Amorites,
the mountains west of the Dead Sea, and part of the land of
Moab; and that the Perizzites were probably not a distinct
nation, but villagers scattered through the country.
