Paseah (Puh-see´uh; Heb., “limper”)

The personal name of three people, perhaps because they were all partially disabled. 1 The Judean son of Eshton (1Chr 4:12). 2 An ancestor of some Temple servants working in postexilic Judah (Ezra 2:49; Neh 7:51). 3 The father of Joiada who, with Meshullam, repaired the Old Gate (Neh 3:6).
