AVIM, OR AVITES Descendants of Canaan, Ge 10:17, who occupied a portion of the coast of Palestine from Gaza towards the river of Egypt, but were expelled and almost destroyed by invading Philistines or Caphtorim, before the time of Moses, De 2:23. Some yet remained in the time of Joshua, Jos 13:3. They are conjectured to have been the same people with the Hivites, of whom traces were found in various parts of Canaan, Ge 34:2 Jos 9:7 11:3.
