Nehemiah 13:10-13

Context

13:10 I also discovered that the grain offerings for the Levites had not been provided, and that as a result the Levites and the singers who performed this work had all gone off to their fields. 13:11 So I registered a complaint with the leaders, asking “Why is the temple of God neglected?” Then I gathered them and reassigned them to their positions. 1 

13:12 Then all of Judah brought the tithe of the grain, the new wine, and the olive oil to the storerooms. 13:13 I gave instructions 2  that Shelemiah the priest, Zadok the scribe, and a certain Levite named Pedaiah be put in charge of 3  the storerooms, and that Hanan son of Zaccur, the son of Mattaniah, be their assistant, 4  for they were regarded as trustworthy. It was then their responsibility to oversee the distribution to their colleagues. 5 

1 tn Heb “and I stood them on their standing.”

2 tc Probably one should read with the Lucianic Greek recension, the Syriac Peshitta, and the Vulgate וָאֲצַוֶּה (vaatsavveh, “and I commanded”) rather than the rare denominative verb וָאוֹצְרָה (vaotsÿrah, “and I appointed over the storeroom”) of the MT.

3 tn Heb “be over”

4 tn Heb “on their hand.”

5 tn Heb “brothers.”
