NET © Notes

tc The unexpected reference to Nehemiah here has led some scholars to suspect that the phrase “Nehemiah the governor” is a later addition to the text and not original.

tn Heb “the priest, the scribe.”

tn Heb “the people.” The pronoun has been used in the translation for stylistic reasons, to avoid redundancy.
