From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    the name of the original inhabitants of Jebus, mentioned
    frequently among the seven nations doomed to destruction (Gen.
    10:16; 15:21; Ex. 3:8, 17; 13:5, etc.). At the time of the
    arrival of the Israelites in Palestine they were ruled by
    Adonizedek (Josh. 10:1, 23). They were defeated by Joshua, and
    their king was slain; but they were not entirely driven out of
    Jebus till the time of David, who made it the capital of his
    kingdom instead of Hebron. The site on which the temple was
    afterwards built belonged to Araunah, a Jebusite, from whom it
    was purchased by David, who refused to accept it as a free gift
    (2 Sam. 24:16-25; 1 Chr. 21:24, 25).
