Genesis 10:15-16

Context

10:15 Canaan was the father of 1  Sidon his firstborn, 2  Heth, 3  10:16 the Jebusites, 4  Amorites, 5  Girgashites, 6 

1 tn Heb “fathered.”

2 sn Sidon was the foremost city in Phoenicia; here Sidon may be the name of its founder.

3 tn Some see a reference to “Hittites” here (cf. NIV), but this seems unlikely. See the note on the phrase “sons of Heth” in Gen 23:3.

4 sn The Jebusites were the Canaanite inhabitants of ancient Jerusalem.

5 sn Here Amorites refers to smaller groups of Canaanite inhabitants of the mountainous regions of Palestine, rather than the large waves of Amurru, or western Semites, who migrated to the region.

6 sn The Girgashites are an otherwise unknown Canaanite tribe, though the name is possibly mentioned in Ugaritic texts (see G. J. Wenham, Genesis [WBC], 1:226).
