The Hittites were mentioned in the Bible. They were an Anatolian people that contributed to creating a kingdom in Kussara before 1750 BC, the Kanesh or Nesha kingdom between 1750 and 1650 BC, and finally an empire based upon Hattusa in north-central Anatolia around 1650 BC. Under uppiluliuma I, the empire reached its peak in the mid-14th century BC, when it ruled over much of Anatolia and areas of the northern Levant and Upper Mesopotamia.Between the 15th and 13th centuries BC, the Hattusa Empire, also called the Hittite Empire, defended control of the Near East with the New Kingdom of Egypt, the Middle Assyrian Empire, and the Mitanni Empire. The Middle Assyrian Empire ultimately emerged as the dominant power, took much of the Hittite Empire, and ransacked the rest by Phrygian newbies to the area. The Hittites separated into numerous self-governing Syro-Hittite countries around c. 1180 BC, at the time of the Late Bronze Age collapse, some of which stayed till the 8th century BC before giving up to the Neo-Assyrian Empire.I urge you to learn more about this fascinating people from the ancient world.
