Smith's Bible Dictionary
Heth

(terror), the forefather of the nation of the Hittites. In the genealogical tables of (Genesis 10:15) and 1Chr 1:13 Heth is a son of Canaan. (Genesis 24:3,4; 28:1,2)

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Dread, a descendant of Canaan, and the ancestor of the Hittites (Genesis 10:18; Deuteronomy 7:1), who dwelt in the vicinity of Hebron (Genesis 23:3, 7). The Hittites were a Hamitic race. They are called "the sons of Heth" (Genesis 23:3, 5, 7, 10, 16, 18, 20).

HETH (1)

chath cheth: The eighth letter of the Hebrew alphabet; transliterated in this Encyclopedia as "ch". It came also to be used for the number 8. For name, etc., see ALPHABET.

HETH (2)

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

See HITTITES.
