Nehemiah 5:19 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Think upon me, my God, for good - Nehemiah wishes for no reward from man; and he only asks mercy at the hand of his God for what his providence enabled him to do; and which, according to the good hand of his God upon him, he had done faithfully.

This is according to the precept of Christ: "Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven; give, and it shall be given unto you."

Remember me for this, my God, and do not blot out what I have so faithfully done for the house of my God and its services.
Then I commanded the Levites to purify themselves and go and guard the gates in order to keep the Sabbath day holy. Remember me for this also, my God, and show mercy to me according to your great love.
