Pahath-moab in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
("governor of Moab".) Head of a chief house of Judah. Their
high rank appears from their being fourth in the two lists
(Ezra 2:6; Nehemiah 7:11). Their chief signed second among the
lay princes (Nehemiah 10:14). Pahath Moab was probably a
family of the Shilonites or sons of Shelah of Judah "who
anciently had the dominion in Moab" (1 Chronicles 4:22;
compare 1 Chronicles 4:14 with 1 Chronicles 2:54, Joab). This
gives some clue to Elimelech's migration to Moab (Ruth 1).
Ophrah (1 Chronicles 4:14) is related to Orpah (Rth 1:4). The
most numerous family (2,818) in the lists, except the
Benjamite house of Senaah (Nehemiah 7:38). Hence they repair
two portions of the wall (Nehemiah 3:11-23). As the Benjamites
and Shilonites are together in 1 Chronicles 9:5-7; Nehemiah
11:5-7, so Benjamin and Hashub of Pahath Moab are together in

Pahath-moab in Smiths Bible Dictionary
(governor of Moab), head of one of the chief houses of the
tribe of Judah. Of the individual or the occasion of his
receiving so singular a name nothing is known certainty but as
we read in 1Ch 4:22 of a family of Shilonites, of the tribe of
Judah, who in very early times "had dominion in Moab," it may
be conjectured that this was the origin of the name.
Pahath-moab in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
pa'-hath-mo'-ab (pachath mo'abh, "sheik of Moab"; in I Esdras
5:11; 8:31, "Phaath Moab"): A Jewish clan probably named after
an ancestor of the above title. Part of the clan returned with
Zerubbabel (Ezr 2:6; compare Neh 7:11) under two family names,
Jeshua and Joab; and a part came back with Ezra (Ezr 8:4).
Hashub, a "son of Pahath-moab," is named among the repairers
of both the wall and the "tower of the furnaces" at Jerusalem
(Neh 3:11). It is the name of one of the signatories "sealing"
the "sure covenant" of Neh 9:38 (Neh 10:14). Some of the sons
of this name had taken "strange wives" (Ezr 10:30)
