Kenaz

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Kenaz : hunter.

  1. One of the sons of Eliphaz, the son of Esau. He became the chief of an Edomitish tribe (Genesis 36:11,15,42).
  2. Caleb's younger brother, and father of Othniel (Joshua 15:17), whose family was of importance in Israel down to the time of David (1 Chronicles 27:15). Some think that Othniel (Judges 1:13), and not Kenaz, was Caleb's brother.
  3. Caleb's grandson (1 Chronicles 4:15).
