<08274>_,
Jamin
<03226>_,
Akkub
<06126>_,
Shabbethai
<07678>_,
Hodijah
<01941>_,
Maaseiah
<04641>_,
Kelita
<07042>_,
Azariah
<05838>_,
Jozabad
<03107>_,
Hanan
<02605>_,
Pelaiah
<06411>_,
and the Levites
<03881>_,
caused the people
<05971>
to understand
<0995> (8688)
the law
<08451>_:
and the people
<05971>
[stood] in their place
<05977>_.
So they read
<07121> (8799)
in the book
<05612>
in the law
<08451>
of God
<0430>
distinctly
<06567> (8794)_,
and gave
<07760> (8800)
the sense
<07922>_,
and caused [them] to understand
<0995> (8799)
the reading
<04744>_.
And Nehemiah
<05166>_,
which [is] the Tirshatha
<08660>_,
and Ezra
<05830>
the priest
<03548>
the scribe
<05608> (8802)_,
and the Levites
<03881>
that taught
<0995> (8688)
the people
<05971>_,
said
<0559> (8799)
unto all the people
<05971>_,
This day
<03117>
[is] holy
<06918>
unto the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_;
mourn
<056> (8691)
not, nor weep
<01058> (8799)_.
For all the people
<05971>
wept
<01058> (8802)_,
when they heard
<08085> (8800)
the words
<01697>
of the law
<08451>_.
{the Tirshatha: or, the governor}
Then he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Go your way
<03212> (8798)_,
eat
<0398> (8798)
the fat
<04924>_,
and drink
<08354> (8798)
the sweet
<04477>_,
and send
<07971> (8798)
portions
<04490>
unto them for whom nothing is prepared
<03559> (8737)_:
for [this] day
<03117>
[is] holy
<06918>
unto our Lord
<0113>_:
neither be ye sorry
<06087> (8735)_;
for the joy
<02304>
of the LORD
<03068>
is your strength
<04581>_.
So the Levites
<03881>
stilled
<02814> (8688)
all the people
<05971>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Hold your peace
<02013> (8761)_,
for the day
<03117>
[is] holy
<06918>_;
neither be ye grieved
<06087> (8735)_.
And all the people
<05971>
went their way
<03212> (8799)
to eat
<0398> (8800)_,
and to drink
<08354> (8800)_,
and to send
<07971> (8763)
portions
<04490>_,
and to make
<06213> (8800)
great
<01419>
mirth
<08057>_,
because they had understood
<0995> (8689)
the words
<01697>
that were declared
<03045> (8689)
unto them.
And on the second
<08145>
day
<03117>
were gathered together
<0622> (8738)
the chief
<07218>
of the fathers
<01>
of all the people
<05971>_,
the priests
<03548>_,
and the Levites
<03881>_,
unto Ezra
<05830>
the scribe
<05608> (8802)_,
even to understand
<07919> (8687)
the words
<01697>
of the law
<08451>_.
{to understand...: or, that they might instruct in the words of the law}
