1 Chronicles 26:16; 1 Chronicles 26:18. A place or outbuilding with" chambers" for laying up temple goods (Keil), on the W. or hinder side of the temple enclosure, the same side as the causeway and gate of Shallechoth, on the S. side of the latter. The Parvarim in 2 Kings 23:11, "suburbs," were probably on the E. side, where "the horses of the sun" would be kept in full view of the rising sun, not in the deep valley on the W. where Parbar was. A portico or porch (Gesenius). The rabbis translate, it "the outside place." Josephus mentions a "suburb" in the valley separating the W. wall of the temple from the city opposite, i.e. the S. end of the Tyroproeon valley, which lies between the wailing place and the modern Zion.
