From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    one of the original tribes scattered over Palestine, from Hermon
    to Gibeon in the south. The name is interpreted as "midlanders"
    or "villagers" (Gen. 10:17; 1 Chr. 1:15). They were probably a
    branch of the Hittites. At the time of Jacob's return to Canaan,
    Hamor the Hivite was the "prince of the land" (Gen. 24:2-28).
      They are next mentioned during the Conquest (Josh. 9:7;
    11:19). They principally inhabited the northern confines of
    Western Palestine (Josh. 11:3; Judg. 3:3). A remnant of them
    still existed in the time of Solomon (1 Kings 9:20).
