Hittite hit’tit (חִתִּי H3153, cf. also בּנֵי־חֵת, “the sons of Heth” [Gen. 23:3 et al.]; represented in cuneiform as ḫatti). The Hittites were an ancient Indo-European people who lived in Anatolia and N Syria. The term, however, is used in the OT to designate several peoples of differing ethnic origins.
