HETH (2)

heth (cheth): In Gen 23:10 the ancestor of the Hittites. As the various peoples who occupied Canaan were thought to belong to one stock, Gen 10:15 (1 Ch 1:13) makes Heth the (2nd) son of Canaan. In Gen 23 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 Gen 10:15,16, where Heth is placed between Sidon and the Jebusites.
See HITTITES.
