Suburbs

Suburbs [N]

the immediate vicinity of a city or town ( Numbers 35:3 Numbers 35:7 ; Ezek. 45:2 ). In 2 Kings 23:11 the Hebrew word there used (parvarim) occurs nowhere else. The Revised Version renders it "precincts." The singular form of this Hebrew word (parvar) is supposed by some to be the same as Parbar (q.v.), which occurs twice in 1 Chronicles 26:18 .
