Nehemiah 9:38

Context
The People Pledge to be Faithful

9:38 (10:1) 1  “Because of all of this we are entering into a binding covenant 2  in written form; 3  our leaders, our Levites, and our priests have affixed their names 4  on the sealed document.”

1 sn Beginning with 9:38, the verse numbers through 10:39 in the English Bible differ from the verse numbers in the Hebrew text (BHS), with 9:38 ET = 10:1 HT, 10:1 ET = 10:2 HT, 10:2 ET = 10:3 HT, etc., through 10:39 ET = 10:40 HT. Beginning with 11:1 the verse numbers in the ET and HT are again the same.

2 tn Heb “we are cutting.”

3 tn Heb “and writing.”

4 tn Heb “our leaders, our Levites, and our priests on the sealed document.” The Hebrew text is elliptical here; the words “have affixed their names” are supplied in the translation for clarity and for stylistic reasons. Cf. v. 2.
