pā´rosh , par´osh ( פּרעשׁ , par‛ōsh , "flea" (leap)): a family that in part returned under Zerubbabel ( Ezra 2:3 ; Nehemiah 7:8 ), and in part under Ezra (Ezra 8:3 ; there spelt "Pharosh," the King James Version). Some of the family had foreign wives (Ezra 10:25 ). One descendant, Pedaiah (see PEDAIAH , (3)), helped to rebuild the city walls (Nehemiah 3:25 ), and others were among those who "sealed" the covenant of Nehemiah (Nehemiah 10:1 , Nehemiah 10:14 ). In 1 Esdras 5:9; 8:30; 9:26, "Phoros."
