Nehemiah 13:1-3

Context
Further Reforms by Nehemiah

13:1 On that day the book of Moses was read aloud in the hearing 1  of the people. They found 2  written in it that no Ammonite or Moabite may ever enter the assembly of God, 13:2 for they had not met the Israelites with food 3  and water, but instead had hired Balaam to curse them. (Our God, however, turned the curse into blessing.) 13:3 When they heard the law, they removed from Israel all who were of mixed ancestry.

1 tn Heb “ears.”

2 tn Heb “it was found.” The Hebrew verb is passive.

3 tn Heb “bread.” The Hebrew term is generic here, however, referring to more than bread alone.
