“ 7 And quarreling arose between Abram’s herders and Lot’s. The Canaanites and Perizzites were also living in the land at that time.”

Since moving from an Anaheim Hills, Orange County, CA, location to our retirement home in the Temescal Valley, Inland Empire, Riverside County, we have embraced the rural life, such as it is in Southern California.

Truly, I am not sure we can be labeled “Perizzites” at this time, perhaps only if the rural moniker applies. The word, rural, appears but once in scripture:

That is why rural Jews—those living in villages—observe the fourteenth of the month of Adar as a day of joy and feasting, a day for giving presents to each other.

Think of Abraham and Lot, who fell into conflict because their flocks and herds overwhelmed the land. “Quarreling arose between Abram’s herders and Lot’s. The Canaanites and the Perizzites [the unbelieving community] were also living in the land at that time” (Genesis 13:7). Lot chose the best of the land and lost everything in the end. Abraham took what was left over and gained the promised land (vv. 12–17). ▶ in Our Daily Bread

The “Perizzites are a group of people mentioned many times in the Bible as having lived in Canaan before the arrival of the Israelites. The name may be related to a Hebrew term meaning "rural person."[1]
