Historical Context: The Elamite Civilization started in the lowland Khuzestan about the late 4th and early 3rd millennia. Known as Elam, geographically, Elam included more than Khuzestan; it was a combination of the lowlands and the immediate highland areas to the north and east. Traditionally it was a federated governmental structure based an overlord ruling over vassal princes. In earliest times the overlord lived in Susa, which functioned as a federal capital.
Elam appears in the Old Testament Table of Nations (Gen. 10.22), and an Elamite king whose name has comedown to us as Kedor-Laomer is mentioned in a later chapter of Genesis (14.1), as well.
