Nehemiah 12:47

Context
12:47 So in the days of Zerubbabel and in the days of Nehemiah, all Israel was contributing the portions for the singers and gatekeepers, according to the daily need. 4  They also set aside 5  the portion for the Levites, and the Levites set aside the portion for the descendants of Aaron.

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.”

4 tn Heb “a thing of a day in its day.”

5 tn Heb “were sanctifying.”
