English Bible Dictionary



The common title of the native kings of Egypt in the Bible, corresponding to P-ra or Ph-ra "the sun," of the hieroglyphics. Brugsch, Ebers and other modern Egyptologists define it to mean 'the great house," which would correspond to our "the Sublime Porte." As several kings are mentioned only by the title "Pharaoh" in the Bible, it is important to endeavor to discriminate them:

  1. The Pharaoh of Abraham

  2. The Pharaoh of Joseph

  3. The Pharaoh of the oppression

  4. The Pharaoh of the exodus

  5. Pharaoh, father-in-law of Mered

  6. Pharaoh, brother-in-law of Hadad the Edomite

  7. Pharaoh, father-in-law of Solomon

  8. Pharaoh, the opponent of Sennacherib

  9. Pharaoh-necho

  10. Pharaoh-hophra                     Divider of Saint TaklaHaymanot's website فاصل - موقع الأنبا تكلاهيمانوت
