PAROSH (pā'rŏsh, Heb. par‘ōsh, a flea). One whose descendants returned to Babylon under Zerubbabel (Ezra.2.3; Neh.7.8) and under Ezra (Ezra.8.3, Pharosh in kjv). One of their number, Pedaiah, helped rebuild the walls (Neh.3.25).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

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