      1  Nehemiah commits the charge of Jerusalem to Hanani and
        Hananiah.
     5  A register of the genealogy of them which came at the first
        out of Babylon;
     9  of the people;
    39  of the priests;
    43  of the Levites;
    46  of the Nethinims;
    57  of Solomon's servants;
    63  and of the priests which could not find their pedigree;
    66  The whole number of them, with their substance.
    70  Their oblations.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - the wall.
       * Ne 3:1-32; 6:15
    - I had set up.
       * Ne 3:3; 6:1
    - the porters.
       * Ne 10:39; 11:3; 12:24 1Ch 23:1-32; 25:1-32 26:32 2Ch 31:2 Ezr 3:8
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - my brother.
       * Ne 1:2
    - Hananiah.
       * Ne 10:23
    - the ruler.
       * Ne 2:8
    - a faithful man.
       * Nu 12:7 Ps 101:6 Da 6:4 Mt 24:45; 25:21 Lu 16:10-12 1Co 4:2
       * 2Ti 2:2

       * Isa 33:5,6
    
    
    VERSE 3 
     - Let not the gates.
      This is, the gates were not to be opened till sun-rise, and to
      be shut at sun-set; which is still the custom in many cities
      of the East.  If a traveller arrives after sun-set, he finds
      the gates shut, and on no consideration will they open them
      till morning.
    
       * Ne 13:19 Ps 127:1 Mt 10:16
    - every one to be.
       * Ne 3:23,28-30
    
    
    VERSE 4 
     - large and great.  Heb. broad in spaces.  the houses.
       * Isa 58:12 Hag 1:4-6 Mt 6:33

    - put into mine.
       * Ezr 7:27 1Co 15:10 2Co 3:5; 8:16 Php 2:12,13 Col 1:29 Jas 16 1:16
      Whatever good motion is in our minds, whether prudent or
      pious, we must acknowledge it to come from God; for every good
      gift and every good work are from above; he gives knowledge,
      he gives grace.  What is commonly called human prudence, ought
      to be ascribed to the direction of Divine Providence.  He who
      teaches the husbandman discretion, Isa 28:26, as certainly
      over-rules the deliberations of senators.
    
    - that.
       * :64 1Ch 9:1-9 Ezr 2:62
    
    
    VERSE 6 
     - the children.
       * Ezr 2:1-70; 5:8; 6:2

    VERSE 7 
     - Zerubbabel.
       * Ne 12:1,7,10 Eze 1:11
    - Sheshbazzar.
       * Ne 2:2 Hag 1:1 Mt 1:12,13
    - Zorobabel.  Jeshua.
       * Ezr 3:8,9; 5:2 Zec 3:1-3
    - Joshua.  Azariah.
      One of Dr. Kennicott's codices has Seraiah, as in the parallel
      passage.
    
       * Ezr 2:2
    - Seraiah, Reelaiah.  Mispereth.
       * Ezr 2:2
    - Mizpar.  Nehum.
      Three MSS. in the parallel place have Nehum, and four have
      here Rehum.
    
       * Ne 12:3 Ezr 2:2
    - Rehum.
    
    
    VERSE 8 
     - Parosh.
       * Ne 10:14 Ezr 2:3; 8:3
    - Pharosh.

    - 775.
    
    
    VERSE 11 
     - Pahath-moab.
       * Ne 10:14 Ezr 2:6
    - 2,812.
       * Ne 8:4
    
    
    VERSE 12 
     - Elam.
       * Ezr 2:7; 8:7; 10:26
    
    
    VERSE 13 
     - Zattu.
       * Ezr 2:8
    - 945.
    
    
    VERSE 14 
     - Zaccai.
       * Ezr 2:9
    
    
    VERSE 15 
     - Binnui.
       * Ezr 2:10
    - Bani.  642.
    
    
    VERSE 16 
     - Bebai.
       * Ezr 2:11
    - 623.
    
    
    VERSE 17 
     - Azgad.
       * Ezr 2:12
    - 1,222.
    
    
    VERSE 18 
     - Adonikam.
       * Ezr 2:13
    - 666.
    
    
    VERSE 19 
     - Bigvai.
       * Ezr 2:14
    - 2,056.  two thousand.
      One MS. of Dr. Kennicott's reads "two thousand sixty and six;"
      but no doubt "two thousand and fifty-six," is the true
      reading, as in the parallel passage.
    
    
    VERSE 20 
     - Adin.
       * Ezr 2:15
    - 454.  six hundred.
      One of Dr. Kennicott's codices has "six hundred fifty and
      four."
    
    
    VERSE 21 
     - Ater.
       * Ezr 2:16
    
    
    VERSE 22 
     - Hashum.
       * Ezr 2:19
    - 223.
    
    
    VERSE 23 
     - Bezai.
       * Ezr 2:17
    - 323.
    
    
    VERSE 24 
     - Hariph.
      Hariph and Jorah were probably two distinct names of this
      person.
    
       * Ezr 2:18
    - Jorah.
    
    
    VERSE 25 
     - Gibeon.
      Gibeon is probably a mistake for Gibbar, or the contrary;
      though this person may have been called by both names.
    
       * Ezr 2:20
    - Gibbar.
    
    
    VERSE 26 
     - The men.
      The Septuagint reads here the same as in the parallel place,
      [                        (            )                      ]
      "The children of Bethlehem, one hundred twenty and three; the
      children of Netophah, fifty and six."  Though this reading is
      not found in any Hebrew MS. yet collated, it is doubtless the
      true one.
    
    - Bethlehem.
       * Ezr 2:21,22
    - 179.
    
    
    VERSE 27 
     - Anathoth.
       * Ezr 2:23 Isa 10:30 Jer 1:1; 11:21
    
    
    VERSE 28 
     - Beth-azmaveth.
       * Ezr 2:24
    - Azmaveth.
    
    
    VERSE 29 
     - Kirjath-jearim.
      Instead of Kirjath-arim, in the parallel place of Ezra, many
      MSS. read Kirjath-jearim, as here.
    
       * Jos 9:17; 18:25 Jud 18:12 Ezr 2:25
    - Kirjath-arim.
    
    
    VERSE 30 
     - Ramah.
       * Jos 18:24,25 Ezr 2:26
    
    
    VERSE 31 
     - Michmas.
      The variation between [Mikmsh <\\S#4363h\\>,] {Michmash,} and
      [Mikmc <\\S#4363h\\>,] {Michmas,} arises from the mutation of
      [Shyn,] {sheen,} and [mek,] {samech;} though several MSS.
      have the former reading here also.
    
       * 1Sa 13:5,23 Ezr 2:27 Isa 10:28
    - Michmash.
    
    
    VERSE 32 
     - Beth-el.
       * Jos 8:9,17 Ezr 2:28
    - 223.
    
    
    VERSE 33 
     - Nebo.
       * Ezr 2:29
    - fifty and two.
      The Alexandrian MS. of the Septuagint adds, [                ]
      "The children of Magbish an hundred fifty and six," as in Ezr
      30 2:30.
    
    
    VERSE 34 
     - the other Elam.
       * :12 Ezr 2:31
    
    
    VERSE 35 
     - Harim.
       * Ezr 2:32; 10:31
    
    
    VERSE 36 
     - Jericho.
       * Ezr 2:34
    
    
    VERSE 37 
     - Lod.
       * Ne 6:2; 11:34,35 1Ch 8:12 Ezr 2:33
    - 725.
    
    
    VERSE 38 
     - Senaah.
       * Ezr 2:35
    - 3,630.
    
    
    VERSE 39 
     - Jedaiah.
       * 1Ch 24:7-19 Ezr 2:36
    
    
    VERSE 40 
     - Immer.
       * 1Ch 24:14 Ezr 2:37
    
    
    VERSE 41 
     - Pashur.
       * 1Ch 9:12; 24:9 Ezr 2:38; 10:22
    
    
    VERSE 42 
     - Harim.
       * 1Ch 24:8 Ezr 2:39; 10:31
    
    
    VERSE 43 
     - Hodevah.
       * Ezr 2:40
    - Hodaviah.
       * Ne 3:9
    - Judah.
    
    
    VERSE 44 
     - The singers.
       * 1Ch 25:2 Ezr 2:41
    - 128. an hundred.
      One of Dr. Kennicott's MSS. reads in the parallel place of
      Ezra, "an hundred and forty and eight," as here.
    
    
    VERSE 45 
     - The porters.
       * 1Ch 26:1-32 Ezr 2:42
    - 130.
    
    
    VERSE 46 
     - Nethinims.
       * Le 27:2-8 Jos 9:23-27 1Ch 9:2
    - Hashupha.
       * Ezr 2:43
    - Hasupha.
    
    
    VERSE 47 
     - Sia.
       * Ezr 2:44
    - Siaha.
    
    
    VERSE 48 
     - Hagaba.
       * Ezr 2:45,46
    - Hagabah, or Hagab.
      The Alexandrian MS. of the Septuagint inserts here, [
                                           ] "the children of Akoud,
      the children of Outa, the children of Ketar, the children of
      Agab," or Hagab:  see the parallel passages.
    - Shalmai.
      In the parallel passage not only the Keri and Septuagint, but
      many of Dr. Kennicott's MSS. read Shalmai, as here.  A more
      extensive collation of MSS. would doubtless tend still more to
      harmonize both the names and numbers.
    
       * Ezr 2:46
    - Shamlai.
    
    VERSE 49
        * :49
    
    VERSE 50
    
    
    VERSE 51 
     - Phaseah.
      This variation only exists in the translation; the original
      being uniformly Pasah.
    
       * Ezr 2:49
    - Paseah.
    
    
    VERSE 52 
     - Meunim.
      The first of these variations is attributable to the
      translation, the original being uniformly, [Me-wny
      <\\S#4586h\\>,] {Me-nim;} and the latter arises from the
      mutation of, [Vv,] {wav,} and, [Y"wd,] {yood,} and insertion
      of, [Shyn,] {sheen,} though in the parallel passage the
      Kethiv is [Nephycym <\\S#5304h\\>,] {Nephisim;} and here the
      Keri and many MSS. have [Neph-whsecym <\\S#5300h\\>,]
      {Nephishesim.}
    
       * Ezr 2:50
    - Mehunim, Nephusim.
    
    VERSE 53
    
    
    VERSE 54 
     - Bazlith.
      Instead of Bazlith, many MSS. and the LXX. have Bazluth, as in
      the parallel place.
    
       * Ezr 2:52
    - Bazluth.
    
    
    VERSE 55 
     - Tamah.
      Here there is no variation in the original; it being uniformly
      Tamah.
    
       * Ezr 2:53
    - Thamah.
    
    VERSE 56
    
    
    VERSE 57 
     - Solomon's.
       * Ne 11:3
    - Perida.
      Three MSS. have Peruda, instead of Perida, as in Ezra.
    
       * Ezr 2:55
    - Peruda.
    
    
    VERSE 58 
     - Jaala.
      The variation of [Yaal <\\S#3279h\\>,] {Jaalah,} and [Yaalh
      <\\S#3279h\\>,} {Jaala,} merely arises from the mutation of
      [H,] {hay,} into ['Aleph,] {aleph,} according to the Chaldee
      dialect.
    
       * Ezr 2:56
    - Jaalah.
    
    
    VERSE 59 
     - Amon.
      Instead of Amon, two of De Rossi's MSS. have Amin, and the
      LXX. have [           ,] Emim; which nearly approaches the Ami
      of Ezra.
    
       * Ezr 2:57
    - Ami.
    
    
    VERSE 60 
     - the Nethinims.
       * Ezr 2:58
    
    
    VERSE 61 
     - Tel-haresha.
      The first of these variations only exists in the translation;
      the original being uniformly [Tl Charsh <\\S#8521h\\>,]
      {Tel-harsha:}  the latter simply arises from the insertion of
      a [Vv,] {wav;} being written ['Addn <\\S#135h\\>,] {Addan,}
      in the parallel passage, and ['Add"wn <\\S#114h\\>,] {Addon,}
      here.
    
       * Ezr 2:59
    - Tel-harsa, Addan.  seed.  or, pedigree.
    
    
    VERSE 62 
     - six hundred.
       * Ezr 2:60
    - 652.
    
    
    VERSE 63 
     - of the priests.
       * Ezr 2:61-63
    - Barzillai.
       * 2Sa 17:27; 19:31-33 1Ki 2:7
    
    
    VERSE 64 
     - These sought.
       * Mt 22:11-13
    - those that were.
       * :5 1Ch 9:1
    - but it was.
       * Mt 25:11,12
    - as polluted.
       * Ne 13:29 Le 4:3
    
    
    VERSE 65 
     - the Tirshatha.  or, the governor.
       * Ne 8:9; 10:1 Ezr 2:63
    - that they should.
       * Le 2:3,10; 6:17; 7:19,20; 10:17,18; 21:21-23
    - till there.
       * Ex 28:30 Nu 27:21 De 33:8
    
    VERSE 66
        * Ezr 2:64
    
    
    VERSE 67 
     - their man-servants.
       * Isa 45:1,2 Jer 27:7
    - two hundred.
       * Ezr 2:65
    - 200.
    
    VERSE 68
        * Ezr 2:66,67
    
    
    VERSE 69
       Here Jerome adds, in the Vulgate, {Hucusque refertur quid in
      commentario scriptum fuerit; exin Nehemi' historia texitur:}
      "Thus far do the words extend which were written in the
      register; what follows belongs to the history of Nehemiah."
      This addition is not found in the Hebrew, or any ancient
      version:  it is also wanting in the Paris and Complutensian
      Polyglotts; but is found in the Editio Prima of the Vulgate.
      What follows, however, seems to relate to a distinct oblation
      from that recorded in Ezra; and was probably made after the
      people were registered by Nehemiah, who was the Tirshatha, or
      governor, at this time, as Zerubbabel had been at the first
      return of the Jews from captivity.  Blessed be God that our
      faith and hope are not built upon the niceties of names and
      numbers, genealogy and chronology, but on the great things of
      the law and gospel.  Whatever is given to the work of God and
      his cause will surely be remembered by him (Heb 6:10).
    
       * :69
    
    
    VERSE 70 
     - some.  Heb. part.
       * Ezr 2:68-70
    - the chief.
       * Nu 7:2-86 1Ch 29:3-9
    - The Tirshatha.
       * Ne 8:9; 10:1
    - drams.
      Darkemonim, or darics; a Persian gold coin, worth about 1.
      5s.
    
    - basons.
       * Ex 12:22; 24:6 1Ki 7:45 1Ch 28:17 2Ch 4:8,11 Jer 52:19
    
    
    VERSE 71 
     - chief.
       * Job 34:19 Lu 21:1-4 2Co 8:12
    - pound.  Manim, manehs or minas.
      As a weight, the maneh was equal to 100 shekels; but as a
      coin, equal to 60 shekels, or about 9.
    
    VERSE 72
    
    
    VERSE 73 
     - all Israel.
      It was for the purpose of ascertaining the different families,
      and consequently the different cities, villages, etc., which
      belonged to them, according to the ancient division of the
      land, that the public registers were examined.
    
    - when the seventh.
