Pharez [N] [E] [H]

(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 Judahs second son, and from two of his sons sprang two new chief houses, those of the Hezronites and Hamulites. From Hezrons 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.
