Nehemiah 12:45-46

Context
12:45 They performed the service of their God and the service of purification, along with the singers and gatekeepers, according to the commandment of David and 1  his son Solomon. 12:46 For long ago, in the days of David and Asaph, there had been directors 2  for the singers and for the songs of praise and thanks to God.

1 tc With many medieval Hebrew MSS and the ancient versions the translation reads the conjunction (“and”). It is absent in the Leningrad MS that forms the textual basis for BHS.

2 tn Heb “heads.” The translation reads with the Qere the plural רֹאשֵׁי (roshey, “heads”) rather than the Kethib singular רֹאשׁ (rosh, “head”) of the MT.
