Genesis 14:5 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Rephaims - A people of Canaan: Genesis 15:20.

Ashteroth - A city of Basan, where Og afterwards reigned; Joshua 13:31.

Zuzims - Nowhere else spoken of, unless they were the same with the Zamzummims, Deuteronomy 2:20, as some imagine.

Emims - A people great and many in the days of Moses, and tall as the Anakim. They dwelt among the Moabites, by whom they were reputed giants; Deuteronomy 2:10, Deuteronomy 2:11.

Shaveh Kiriathaim - Rather, as the margin, the plain of Kiriathaim, which was a city afterwards belonging to Sihon king of Heshbon; Joshua 13:19.
