Nehemiah 8:10 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
Ezra stood upon a raised stage of wood which had been made for the purpose (לדּבר, for the matter). מגדּל, usually a tower, here a high scaffold, a pulpit. Beside him stood six persons, probably priests, on his right, and seven on his left hand. In 1 Esdras, seven are mentioned as standing on his left hand also, the name Azariah being inserted between Anaiah and Urijah. It is likely that this name has been omitted from the Hebrew text, since it is improbable that there was one person less on his right than on his left hand. "Perhaps Urijah is the father of the Meremoth of Nehemiah 3:4, Nehemiah 3:21; Maaseiah, the father of the Azariah of Nehemiah 3:23; Pedaiah, the individual named Nehemiah 3:25; the Azariah to be inserted, according to 1 Esdras, the same named Nehemiah 3:23; a Meshullam occurs, Nehemiah 3:4, Nehemiah 3:6; and a Malchiah, Nehemiah 3:11, Nehemiah 3:14, Nehemiah 3:31" (Bertheau).
