Nehemiah 3:7

Context
3:7 Adjacent to them worked Melatiah the Gibeonite and Jadon the Meronothite, who were men of Gibeon and Mizpah. These towns were under the jurisdiction 1  of the governor of Trans-Euphrates.

Nehemiah 5:14

Context

5:14 From the day that I was appointed 2  governor 3  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 4  ate the food allotted to the governor. 5 

1 tn Heb “to the seat.”

2 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”).

3 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.

4 tn Heb “brothers.”

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