Parosh (2)

Pa'rosh (Heb. Parosh', פִּרעשׁ, flea; Sept. Φόρος, but Φαρές in Ezr 2:3; A.V. Pharosh," in Ezr 8:3), a Jew whose retainers or descendants, in number 2172, returned from Babylon with Zerubbabel (Ezr 2:3; Ne 7:8). Another detachment of 150 males, with Zechariah at their head, accompanied Ezra (Ezr 8:3). Seven of the family had married foreign wives (Ezr 10:25). They assisted in the building of the wall of Jerusalem (Ne 3:25), and signed the covenant with Nehemiah (Ne 10:14), either individually, or perhaps representatively in the person of Parosh himself, if then surviving.
