kē´nez - ı̄t ( קנזּי , ḳenizzı̄ ; Κενεζαῖος , Kenezaı̄os ): the King James Version in Genesis 15:19 and the Revised Version (British and American) uniformly, spell "Kenizzite." The Kenezites were the clan whose name-father was KENAZ (which see). Their land, along with that of their Canaanite tribes, was promised to Abram (Genesis 15:19 ). To this clan belonged Jephunneh, the father of Caleb (Numbers 32:12 ; Joshua 14:6 , Joshua 14:14 ). It had evidently been absorbed by the tribe of Judah. If the Kenezites went down with Jacob into Egypt, they may have become identified with his family there.
