Canaanite tribe of Jebusites

Jebusites are first mentioned in the Bible in a list of Canaanite clans. Jebus was an alternate early name for Jerusalem.

According to the biblical account the Jebusites were descendents of Canaan, who lived in the hill country with Amorites. In Genesis 10 Noah had three sons name Shem, Ham and Japeth,. Canaan is said to be the son of Ham and his first born was named Sidon. Heth is son of Canaan and is said to be ancestor of the Hittites. Jebui, also known as Jebusite is said to be offspring of Canaan.

The name Jerusalem goes far back into the history with early biblical incidents and from the extrabiblical occurrence of the corresponding name Ur-salimmu. During several centuries before the time of David, the city was known as the home of the Jebusites, and some argue that Jebus received its name from this people.

The Jebusites live in the city until David conquered the city in 1000 BC, and making it the capital of the united kingdom of Israel and Judah.
