(kad' muhn ite) Name of a people meaning, “easterners.” Tribe God promised (Genesis 15:19 ) Israel would disposses. They probably inhabited the Syro-Arabian desert between Palestine-Syria and the Euphrates—which is to say, areas to the east of Canaan. Their names often have Arabian associations. They may be related to the “children of the east” mentioned in Judges 6:33 . The sons of the concubines of Abraham were sent to live in the “east country” (Kedem) away from Isaac (Genesis 25:6 ). Job (Job 1:3 ), the camel-riding Midianite kings (Judges 8:10-12 ,Judges 8:10-12,8:21 ,Judges 8:21,8:26 ) and the wise men whose names have Arabian associations (1 Kings 4:30-31 ) are all described as sons of the east.
