Quick Reference

A people displaced by the incoming Israelites. The post-exilic editor of Genesis maintains that Abraham was promised the Girgashite territory in N. Canaan (Gen. 15: 21; cf. Deut. 7: 1; Josh. 3: 10) and Nehemiah (9: 8) regards the promise as still valid, according to the reported words of Ezra, as do orthodox Jews in modern Israel.
