ke'-nez-it (qenizzi; Kenezaios): the King James Version in Genesis 15:19 and the Revised Version (British and American) uniformly, spell "Kenizzite." The Kenezites were the clan whose name-father was KENAZ (which see). Their land, along with that of their Canaanite tribes, was promised to Abram (Genesis 15:19). To this clan belonged Jephunneh, the father of Caleb (Numbers 32:12 Joshua 14:6, 14). It had evidently been absorbed by the tribe of Judah. If the Kenezites went down with Jacob into Egypt, they may have become identified with his family there.
