Children of, Gen. 46:12; Num. 26:20, 21; 1 Chr. 2:5; 9:4; return from the captivity, Neh. 11:4, 6.

(breach). The "children of Perez," or Pharez, the son of Judah, appear to have been a family of importance for many centuries. (1 Chronicles 27:3; Nehemiah 11:4,6)


(Perez, (1 Chronicles 27:3) Phares, (Matthew 1:3; Luke 3:33) 1 Esd. 5:6), twin son, with Zarah or Zerah, of Judah and Tamer his daughter-in-law. (B.C. 1730.) The circumstances of his birth are detailed in Gen. 38. Pharez occupied the rank of Judah?s second son, and from two of his sons sprang two new chief houses, those of the Hezronites and Hamulites. From Hezron?s second son Ram, or Aram, sprang David and the kings of Judah, and eventually Jesus Christ. In the reign of David the house of Pharez seems to have been eminently distinguished.


PEREZ; PHAREZ - pe'-rez, fa'-rez (perets, "breach"): One of the twins born to Judah by Tamar, Zerah's brother (Gen 38:29,30). In the King James Version Mt 1:3 and Lk 3:33, he is called "Phares," the name in 1 Esdras 5:5. He is "Pharez" in the King James Version Gen 46:12; Nu 26:20,21; Ruth 4:12,18; 1 Ch 2:4,5; 4:1; 9:4. In the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American) 1 Ch 27:3; Neb 11:4,6, he is "Perez." He is important through the fact that by way of Ruth and Boaz and so through Jesse and David his genealogy comes upward to the Saviour. The patronymic "Pharzite" occurs in Nu 26:20 the King James Version.

Perezites (Nu 16:20, the King James Version "Pharzites"). The patronymic of the name Perez.
