Now one of the sons of Joiada son of Eliashib the high priest was a son-in-law of Sanballat the Horonite. So I banished him from my sight.
When Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite official 1 heard all this, they were very displeased that someone had come to seek benefit for the Israelites.
But when Sanballat the Horonite, Tobiah the Ammonite official, and Geshem the Arab heard all this, 1 they derided us and expressed contempt toward us. They said, “What is this you are doing? Are you rebelling against the king?”
