par - vā´im ( פּרוים , parwāyim ; Septuagint Pharouaim ): The word occurs only in 2 Chronicles 3:6 , as the place from which Solomon obtained gold for the decoration of his Temple. A derivation is given from the Sanskrit pūrva , "eastern," so that the name might be a vague term for the East (Gesenius, Thesaurus , 1125). Whether there was such a place in arabia is doubtful. Farwa in Yemen has been suggested, and also Sāḳ el Farwain in Yemamah. Some have considered the name a shortened form of Ṣepharvāyim which occurs in the Syriac and Targum Jonathan for the "Sephar" of Genesis 10:30 .
