2. 1 Chronicles 4:18.

3. 1 Chronicles 8:17.

The Kenites migrated with the children of Judah into the wilderness of Judah at the time of the conquest of Canaan (Judges 1:16). They had accompanied Israel to Canaan at Moses' request (Numbers 10:29, etc.). (See HAZEZON TAMAR.) Besides this general migration Heber's family migrated to Kedesh in Naphtali, the debatable ground between northern Israel and Jabin.
