Apharsachites

A company of the colonists whom the Assyrian king planted in Samaria (Ezra 5:6-7).

Apharsites

Another of the tribes removed to Samaria, or perhaps the same as Apharsachites (Ezra 4:9)

Arkites

Arkites, also Archites were the descendants of Canaan according to Genesis 10:17 and 1 Chronicles 1:15 and were inhabitants of the land of Canaan according to Joshua 16:2. David's friend Hushai was an Archite (2 Samuel 15:32).

Arvadites were the descendants of Canaan according to Genesis 10:18 and 1 Chronicles 1:16.

Girgashites, or Girgasites, were the descendants of Canaan according to Genesis 10:16 and 1 Chronicles 1:14 and were inhabitants of the land of Canaan according to Genesis 15:21, Deuteronomy 7:1, Joshua 3:10, 24:11, and Nehemiah 9:8. At times they are not listed along with the other Canaanite tribes inhabiting the Holy Land; according to some, such as Rashi, this is because they left the Land of Israel before the Israelites returned from Egypt.

H

Hamathites

Hamathites were the descendants of Canaan according to Genesis 10:18 and 1 Chronicles 1:16.

Z

Zemarites

Zemarites were the descendants of Canaan according to Genesis 10:18 and 1 Chronicles 1:16.
