Horim


Ho’rim and Ho’rites (descendants of Hori), the aboriginal inhabitants of Mount Seir, Gen. 14:6, and probably allied to the Emim and Rephaim. The name Horite appears to have been derived from their habits as “cave-dwellers.” Their excavated dwellings are still found in hundreds in the sandstone cliffs and mountains of Edom, and especially in Petra.
