And there were quarrels between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock, and the Canaanite and the Perizzite lived in the land at that time. Bible see other translations

“the Canaanite.” The Canaanites were descendants of Ham (Gen. 10:6), although in this context it means more than just that the descendants of Ham’s son Canaan settled there (see commentary on Gen. 12:6).

“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.
