7:10 Now Ezra had dedicated himself 1 to the study of the law of the Lord, to its observance, and to teaching 2 its statutes and judgments in Israel.
7:25 “Now you, Ezra, in keeping with the wisdom of your God which you possess, 3 appoint judges 4 and court officials who can arbitrate cases on behalf of all the people who are in Trans-Euphrates who know the laws of your God. Those who do not know this law should be taught.
1 tn Heb “established his heart.”
2 tn Heb “to do and to teach.” The expression may be a hendiadys, in which case it would have the sense of “effectively teaching.”
3 tn Aram “in your hand.”
4 tc For the MT reading שָׁפְטִין (shoftim, “judges”) the LXX uses the noun γραμματεῖς (grammatei", “scribes”).
