and his allies, were attacked and overthrown by them. (Genesis

zu'-zim (zuzim; (ethne ischura, "strong nations." So
Jerome in Quaest. Hebrew: genres fortes):
A people conquered by Chedorlaomer (Genesis
14:5). They dwelt in Ham, a region not otherwise known but, from the connection,
inferred to be East of the Jordan. It may also be inferred that they were a race
of giants. They were perhaps to be identified with the Zamzummim.
