Nehemiah 12:44

Context

12:44 On that day men were appointed over the storerooms for the contributions, first fruits, and tithes, to gather into them from 1  the fields of the cities the portions prescribed by the law for the priests and the Levites, for the people of Judah 2  took delight in the priests and Levites who were ministering. 3 

1 tc The translation reads מִשְּׂדֶי (missÿde, “from the fields”) rather than the MT reading לִשְׂדֵי (lisdey, “to the fields”).

2 tn Heb “for Judah.” The words “the people of” have been supplied in the translation for clarity, since “Judah” is a proper name as well as a place name.

3 tn Heb “standing.”
