  Emims 
  terrors,  a  warlike  tribe  of  giants  who  were  defeated  by 
  Chedorlaomer  and  his  allies  in  the  plain  of  Kiriathaim.  In  the 
  time  of  Abraham  they  occupied  the  country  east  of  Jordan, 
  afterwards  the  land  of  the  Moabites  (Gen.  14:5;  Deut.  2:10). 
  They  were  like  the  Anakim,  reckoned  among  the  Rephaim,  and  were 
  conquered  by  the  Moabites,  who  gave  them  the  name  of  Emims, 
  i.e.,  "terrible  men"  (Deut.  2:11).  The  Ammonites  called  them 
  Zamzummims  (2:20).
