“Smiths, the name of a tribe inhabiting the desert lying between” southern Palestine and the mountains of Sinai. Jethro was of “this tribe (Judg. 1:16). He is called a “Midianite” (Num.” “10:29), and hence it is concluded that the Midianites and the” “Kenites were the same tribe. They were wandering smiths, “the” gipsies and travelling tinkers of the old Oriental world. They formed an important guild in an age when the art of metallurgy “was confined to a few” (Sayce’s Races, etc.). They showed” kindness to Israel in their journey through the wilderness. They “accompanied them in their march as far as Jericho (Judg. 1:16),” “and then returned to their old haunts among the Amalekites, in” the desert to the south of Judah. They sustained afterwards friendly relations with the Israelites when settled in Canaan “(Judg. 4:11, 17-21; 1 Sam. 27:10; 30:29). The Rechabites” belonged to this tribe (1 Chr. 2:55) and in the days of Jeremiah (35:7-10) are referred to as following their nomad habits. Saul “bade them depart from the Amalekites (1 Sam. 15:6) when, in” “obedience to the divine commission, he was about to “smite” “Amalek.” And his reason is, “for ye showed kindness to all the” “children of Israel when they came up out of Egypt.” Thus “God is” not unrighteous to forget the kindnesses shown to his people; “but they shall be remembered another day, at the farthest in the” “great day, and recompensed in the resurrection of the just” (M.” Henry’s Commentary). They are mentioned for the last time in Scripture in 1 Sam. 27:10; comp. 30:20.
Definition of Kenites: “possession; purchase; lamentation”
