pā´hath - mō´ab ( פּחת־מואב , paḥath mō'ābh , "sheik of Moab"; in I E sdras Numbers 5:11 ; 8:31, "Phaath Moab"): A J ewish clan probably named after an ancestor of the above title. Part of the clan returned with Zerubbabel (Ezra 2:6 ; compare Nehemiah 7:11 ) under two family names, Jeshua and Joab; and a part came back with Ezra (Ezra 8:4 ). Hashub, a "son of Pahath-moab," is named among the repairers of both the wall and the "tower of the furnaces" at Jerusalem (Nehemiah 3:11 ). It is the name of one of the signatories "sealing" the "sure covenant" of Nehemiah 9:38 ( Nehemiah 10:14 ). Some of the sons of this name had taken "strange wives" (Ezra 10:30 )
