Nehemiah 5:14

Context

5:14 From the day that I was appointed 1  governor 2  in the land of Judah, that is, from the twentieth year until the thirty-second year of King Artaxerxes – twelve years in all – neither I nor my relatives 3  ate the food allotted to the governor. 4 

1 tc The BHS editors suggest reading צֻוֵּאתִי (tsuvveti, “and I was appointed”) rather than the reading of the MT, אֹתִי צִוָּה (tsivvahoti, “he appointed me”).

2 tc The translation reads with one medieval Hebrew MS פֶּחָה (pekhah, “governor”) rather than פֶּחָם (pekham, “their governor”) of the MT. One would expect the form with pronominal suffix to have a tav (ת) before the suffix.

3 tn Heb “brothers.”

4 tn Heb “the food of the governor.” Cf. v. 18.
