PAHATH-MOAB. The name of a Jewish clan which consisted of two branches, Jeshua and Joah. Part of it returned with Zerubbabel, part with Ezra, and part remained in Babylon. The word has been read to mean ‘governor of Moab,’ and referred to a dominion once exercised over Moab. It is, however, more probable that we have a corrupted text. See Ezra 2:6 ; Ezra 8:4 , Nehemiah 7:11 ; in 1E Esther 5:11 ; 1Es 8:31 Peter haath Moab.
