Perizzites

Perizzites (Pair´i-zits)

One of the older population groups of the land of Canaan, usually listed as one of the six or seven inhabiting the land (Exod 3:8; Exod 3:17; Exod 23:23; Exod 33:2; Exod 34:11; Deut 7:1; Deut 20:17; Josh 3:10; Josh 9:1; Josh 11:3; Josh 12:8; Josh 24:11; Judg 3:5; 1Kgs 9:20; Gen 15:20). Occasionally they are mentioned with the Canaanites as the two native peoples of Canaan (Gen 13:7; Gen 34:30; Judg 1:4-5). They evidently lived in the central highlands, particularly the forested hill country of Ephraim (Josh 17:15; Judg 1:4-5). Their identity is uncertain. Some have connected them with the Hurrians; others, with the Amorites.
