ETHNOLOGICAL SUMMARY.

West of Jordan, Syria and Palestine were occupied by the Canaanites; East of Jordan, by the Emims and Horites, who were subsequently dispossessed by the Edomites, Moabites, and Ammonites; the Ishmaelites scoured the "Aramaic Desert;" the Amalekites and Midianites held the mountains of the Arabian Desert (Sinai). Such were the peoples with whom Israel had to contend, when they came out of Egypt to take possession of Canaan, "the Promised Land."
