THE HISTORY OF MAN.
Misraim's sons were Ludiem, Enemim, Labim, Nedim,
Pethrosim, Chesloim, Cophthorim and Philestim. In
consequence of the devastations of the Ethiopic war, we
are acquainted with the names only of these — if we ex¬
cept Philestim, previously mentioned, and Labim, who
settled and gave his name to Lybia.
The Canaanites, called by the Greeks Phoenicians and
Ethiopians, were the descendants of Canaan, the fourth
son of Ham, and grandson of Noah; and inhabited the
land of Canaan — the country now called Judea. The
border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou com-
est from Gaza, unto Gagar; as thou goest unto Sodom,
and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, even unto La-
sha. The sons of Canaan were Sidon, Heth, the Jebu-
site, the Amorite, the Girgashite, the Hivite and the Ar-
kite, the Sinite, the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Ha-
mathite. — (Gen. x.)
The Sidonians built Sidon in the province of Phoenicia.
The children of Heth built the city of Hebron, in the
land of Canaan. Abraham was a mighty prince among
them, and buried Sarah, his wife, in the field of the sons
of Heth. —(Gen. xxiii.)
Heshbon was a city of the Amorites.
Hamath and Ashina, built by the Hamathites, border
on Tyre and Sidon.
Amathus settled in Amathine, which is even now call¬
ed Amathe by the inhabitants; although the Macedonians
named it Ethiopia, from one of his posterity. Amathus
is the name of a city on the island of Cyprus. Arudeus
possessed the island of Libanus.
The Amalekites were the descendants of Amalek, of
the family of Ham; they inhabited the southern part of
Canaan, and were the first of the nations. — (Numbers,
The Anakines were also the offspring of Ham, and
were a powerful people; their cities were walled, and
The men of Cuth made (or built,) Nergal. — (2 Kings,
xvii. 30.) Cushi came with tidings unto King David of
the death of Absalom, his son from the army. — (2 Sam.
xviii.) All the princes sent Jehudi, the son of Nathani-
ah, the son of Shelamiah, the son of Cushi.—(Jer. xxxvi.
