PAU (pā'ū, Heb. pā‘û, bleating). The capital city of King Hadar of Edom (Gen.36.39). Also called Pai (1Chr.1.50 most versions; Pau niv), it remains unidentified.

PAU pō, pā’ u (פָּ֑עוּ or פָּ֑עִי; LXX Φογωρ, meaning unknown). An Edomite city whose chief was Hadad.

Only Genesis 36:39 mentions Pau. The alternate form, Pai, occurs in 1 Chronicles 1:50. In Genesis, the chief is named Hadar but in Chronicles it is Hadad, which is prob. correct (cf. 1 Kings 11:14). Its location is unknown.
