Heth (2)

heth (cheth): In Ge 23:10 the ancestor of the Hittites. As the various peoples who occupied Canaan were thought to belong to one stock, Ge 10:15 (1Ch 1:13) makes Heth the (2nd) son of Canaan. In Ge 23:1-20 the "sons of Heth" occupy Hebron, but they were known to have come there from the north. A reference to this seems to be preserved in the order of the names in Ge 10:15-16, where Heth is placed between Sidon and the Jebusites.
