Observe what I command you this day. Behold, I drive out before you the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite. Bible

“the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite.” All of these tribes except the Perizzites are descended from Ham’s son Caanan, and are thus included when “Canaanites” is used in its wider sense (and even then the Perizzites might be generally included as inhabitants of the land of Canaan. Genesis 10 says, “Canaan became the father of Sidon (his firstborn)[thus the Phoenicians], Heth [thus the Hittites], the Jebusite, the Amorite, the Girgashite, the Hivite, the Arkite, the Sinite, the Arvadite, the Zemarite, and the Hamathite” (Gen. 10:15-18).

“Perizzite.” A tribe of unknown origin in that by the time of Joshua lived in the hill country of Judah and Ephraim. See commentary on Joshua 9:1.
