Who were the Moabites?

Ezra 9:1 (ESV)

1 After these things had been done, the officials approached me and said, “The people of Israel and the priests and the Levites have not separated themselves from the peoples of the lands with their abominations, from the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.

The Moabites were the descendants of Lot by his elder daughter (Genesis 19:37). They lived in Moab east of the Dead Sea.1
