Nehemiah 2:20

Context
2:20 I responded to them by saying, “The God of heaven will prosper us. We his servants will start the rebuilding. 1  But you have no just or ancient right in Jerusalem.” 2 

1 tn Heb “will arise and build.” The idiom “arise and…” means to begin the action described by the second verb.

2 tn Heb “portion or right or remembrance.” The expression is probably a hendiatris: The first two nouns retain their full nominal function, while the third noun functions adjectivally (“right or remembrance” = “ancient right”).
