This was the name of two biblical men.

  1. one of the sons of Seir, and head of an Idumean tribe, called a Horite, as in course of time all branches of this tribe were called because they lived in caves in Mount Seir (Genesis 36:20, 29; 1 Chronicles 1:38).

  2. one of the two sons of Zibeon the Horite, and father of Esau’s wife Aholibamah (Genesis 36:18, 24).
