Easton's Bible Dictionary

Parvaim:

the name of a country from which Solomon obtained gold for the temple (2Ch 3:6). Some have identified it with Ophir, but it is uncertain whether it is even the name of a place. It may simply, as some think, denote "Oriental regions."

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Parvaim:

par-va'-im (parwayim; Septuagint Pharouaim): The word occurs only in 2Ch 3:6, as the place from which Solomon obtained gold for the decoration of his Temple. A derivation is given from the Sanskrit purva, "eastern," so that the name might be a vague term for the East (Gesenius, Thesaurus, 1125). Whether there was such a place in arabia is doubtful. Farwa in Yemen has been suggested, and also Saq el Farwain in Yemamah. Some have considered the name a shortened form of Cepharvayim which occurs in the Syriac and Targum Jonathan for the "Sephar" of Ge 10:30.

Written by A. S. Fulton

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Parvaim:

(Oriental regions) the name of an unknown place or country whence the gold was procured for the decoration of Solomon's temple (2 Chronicles 3:6). We may notice the conjecture that it is derived from the Sanscrit purva, "eastern," and is a general term for the east.
