Nehemiah 13:16 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The payment of dues to the Levites, and the delivery of the tenths and first-fruits, had also been omitted. - Nehemiah 13:10. "And I perceived that the portions of the Levites had not been given; and the Levites and singers who had to do the work, were fled every one to his field." The Levites, i.e., the assistants of the priests, the singers, and also the porters, who are not expressly mentioned in this passage, were accustomed to receive during the time of their ministry their daily portions of the tenths and first-fruits (Nehemiah 12:47). When then these offerings were discontinued, they were obliged to seek their maintenance from the fields of the towns and villages in which they dwelt (Nehemiah 12:28.), and to forsake the service of the house of God. This is the meaning of the בּרח, to flee to the fields.
