CommentaryNehemiah 10:30 Parallel Commentaries
Then you will accept their daughters, who sacrifice to other gods, as wives for your sons. And they will seduce your sons to commit adultery against me by worshiping other gods.
You must not intermarry with them. Do not let your daughters and sons marry their sons and daughters,
About the same time I realized that some of the men of Judah had married women from Ashdod, Ammon, and Moab.

So I purged out everything foreign and assigned tasks to the priests and Levites, making certain that each knew his work.
