Strong's #567 - אֱמֹרִי
Amorite = “a sayer”
1) one of the peoples of east Canaan and beyond the Jordan, dispossessed by the Israelite incursion from Egypt
אֱמֹרִי (according to the probable conjecture of J. Simonis, prop. mountaineer, from the unused אֱמֹר elevation, mountain, see under אָמַר No. 1 ), an Amorite, collect. Amorites (LXX. Ἀμοῤῥαῖοι), a nation of Canaan, and apparently the greatest and most powerful of them all, and whose name is sometimes used in a wider sense, so as to include all the nations of Canaan, Genesis 15:16, 48:22 Amos 2:9, 10 Deuteronomy 1:20. A part of them dwelt in the mountainous region which was afterwards occupied by the tribe of Judah, where they were subject to five kings, Genesis 14:7, 13 Genesis 14:13; Numbers 13:29 another part of them lived beyond Jordan, to the north of Arnon (Numbers 21:13), as far as Jabbok (Numbers 21:24), and even beyond this river (Numbers 32:39); this part of them were subject to two kings, one of whom ruled in Heshbon, the other in Bashan (Deuteronomy 4:47; Joshua 2:10).
