Ezra 4:4

Context
4:4 Then the local people 1  began to discourage 2  the people of Judah and to dishearten them from building.

1 tn Heb “the people of the land.” Elsewhere this expression sometimes has a negative connotation, referring to a lay population that was less zealous for Judaism than it should have been. Here, however, it seems to refer to the resident population of the area without any negative connotation.

2 tn Heb “were making slack the hands of.”
