Suburbs is the rendering, in the A.V., regularly of מַגַרָשׁ, nigr-eash, properly a pasture (1Ch 5:16; Eze 48:15); hence the open country around a city used for grazing (Nu 35:2; Jos 21:11; 1Ch 6:40;. 13:2, etc.), or for any other purpose (Eze 27:28; Eze 45:2; Eze 48:17). Once (2Ki 23:11), it stands for פִּרוָר, parvar, which is but a MS. variation of PARBAR SEE PARBAR (q.v.).
