Nehemiah 9:1 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Celebration of the feast of tabernacles. - Nehemiah 8:13 On the second day were gathered together the heads of the houses of all the people, of the priests, and of the Levites to Ezra the scribe, to attend to the words of the law. The infinitive להשׂכּיל may indeed be taken (as by Bertheau) as the continuation of the finite verb, instead of as infinitive absolute (Ewald, 352, c); this is, however, admissible only in cases where the second verb either states what must be done, or further describes the condition of affairs, while להשׂכּיל here states the purpose for which the heads of the people, etc. assembled themselves unto Ezra. Hence we take להשׂכּיל in its usual meaning, and the w before it as explicative. אל השׂכּיל, as in Psalm 41:1, expresses taking an attentive interest in anything. They desired to be further and more deeply instructed in the law by Ezra.
