 * For I was.
   The office of cup-bearer was one of great trust, honour, and
   emolument, in the Persian court.  To be in such a place of
   trust he must have been in the king's confidence; for no
   eastern potentate would have a cup-bearer to whom he could not
   trust his life, poison being often administered in that way.
   It was an office much desired, because it gave access to the
   king in those seasons of hilarity when men are most disposed
   to grant favours.

  2:1  Ge 40:2,9-13,21,23  41:9 

經文:

尼希米記 2:1-2:1

註釋:

  1;  Artaxerxes, understanding the cause of Nehemiah's sadness,
     sends him with letters and commission to Jerusalem.
  9;  Nehemiah, to the grief of the enemies, comes to Jerusalem.
 12;  He views secretly the ruins of the walls.
 17;  He incites the Jews to build.

註釋:

 * Why is thy.
  Ge 40:7 
 * sorrow.
  Pr 15:13 
 * Then I.
   Probably the king spoke as if he had some suspicion that
   Nehemiah harboured some bad design, and that his face
   indicated some conceived treachery, or remorse; and, indeed,
   the words rendered sad, and sorrow of heart, might be rendered
   evil, and wickedness of heart.

註釋:

   It was probably Esther who was present at this time, and who
   seconded Nehemiah's request.

 * So it pleased.
  4  1:11  Isa 58:12  61:4  65:24 
 * I set him a time.
   It is probable that this time was no more than six months, or
   a year; after which he either returned, or had his leave of
   absence lengthened, as we find he was twelve years governor of
   the Jews.

  Ec 3:7  Am 5:13  Mic 7:5  Mt 10:16 
 * my God.
   This pious and noble-minded man attributes every thing to God.
   If he purposed any good, it was because God put it into his
   heart; if he did or received any good, it was because the good
   hand of his God was upon him; if he expected any good, it was
   because he earnestly prayed God to remember him for good.

   of the city, or to that of Gihon, on the west.

   Probably the aqueduct made by Hezekiah to bring the waters of
   Gihon to the city of David.

   The gate leading to the valley of Jehoshaphat, east of the

   gate he went out; so that he went round the whole of the city,
   and entered by the same gate.

  Ex 28:29  Le 2:2  24:7  Nu 10:10  Isa 56:5  Zec 6:14  Ac 10:4,31 
   When Nehemiah had prayed for the relief of his countrymen, and
   perhaps in David's words, Ps 51:18, he did not sit still and
   say, "Let God now do his own work, for I have no more to do;"
   but set himself to do what he could towards it; and here we
   find that the people were of one heart with Nehemiah.  Our
   prayers must be seconded with our serious endeavours, or else
   we mock God.  Nearly four months had passed, namely, from
   Chisleu to Nisan (November to March), before Nehemiah made his
   application to the king for leave to go to Jerusalem; either
   because the winter was not a proper time for such a journey,
   and he would not make a motion till he could pursue it, or
   because it was so long before his month of waiting upon the
   king came, and there was no coming into his presence until
   called for, Es 4:11.  We are not thus limited to certain
   moments in our addresses to the King of kings, but have
   liberty of access to him at all times; to the throne of grace
   we never come unseasonably.

註釋:

  1;  The names and order of them that built the wall.

 * Eliashib.
  12:10  13:28 
 * the sheep gate.
   This gate is supposed to have immediately communicated with
   the temple, and to have been called the sheep gate, because
   the sheep intended for sacrifice passed through it.  But,
   after all which learned men have written on this subject,
   which is but of little interest, we scarcely know any thing
   about these gates:  what they were, why called by these names,
   or in what part of the wall they were situated, beyond what
   may be learned from the parallel passages.

   That is, probably, the palace of the Persian governor, west of
   the Euphrates; the term throne being used to signify any royal
   abode:  for Sir J. Chardin, describing a splendid tent erected
   by the king of Persia, says "that there was an inscription
   wrought upon the cornice of the anti-chamber, which gave it
   the appellation of the throne of the second Solomon."  Sitting
   upon a throne has, however, sometimes been granted to
   governors.

 * Beth-haccerem.
   Beth-haccerem was a town of Judah, situated on a mountain,
   between Jerusalem and Tekoa, according to Jerome on Jer. ch.
   6.  Dr. Pococke conjectures that the Mountain of the Franks,
   called also the Mount of Bethulia, from a village of that name
   near it, west-north-west of Tekoa, is the ancient
   Beth-haccerem; the position of which seems to agree with the
   citadel of Herodium, built by Herod, on a moderate-sized hill,
   sixty furlongs from Jerusalem.

   Siloah was situated under the eastern wall of Jerusalem,
   between that city and the brook Kedron, and is described by
   Chateaubriand as lying at the foot of Mount Zion.  Dr.
   Richardson represents the pool of Siloam as occurring higher
   up the valley of Jehoshaphat, towards the north, than the well
   of Nehemiah, a little beyond the village of Siloa, and nearly
   opposite the tombs of Jehoshaphat and Zechariah.

   principal people were either obliged, or voluntarily offered,
   to repair those parts of the wall which were opposite, or
   adjacent, to their own houses.  The names of those who
   repaired the walls are commemorated, because it was an
   undertaking of piety, virtue, and courage, to restore the holy
   city.

   The word {tzeraphim} may denote smiths, or refiners, or
   persons that worked in metals of any kind; but it is generally
   understood of those who worked in gold.  From the remotest
   period of the history of the Jews, they had artists in all the
   elegant and ornamental trades; and it appears that goldsmiths,
   apothecaries, and merchants were formed into companies in the
   time of Nehemiah.

   {Habergeon,} from the Teutonic {hals,} the neck, and {bergen,}
   to cover, defend, may be considered as signifying a
   breast-plate, though the Franco-Gallic {hautbergon} signifies
   a coat of mail; the original {shiryon,} we have already seen,
   denotes a corslet.

   their hands; but the expression is evidently figurative,
   implying that every man was a much a soldier as a builder.

   The original of this obscure clause is {ish shilcho hammayim,}
   which is rendered by Montanus, {vir missile suum aquas,} "a
   man his dart to the waters," of which it is difficult to make
   sense.  It is wholly omitted by the LXX.; and one of De
   Rossi's MSS. reads, {meshallachah (836c) hammayim,} "in order to
   send them to the water."

   with fish and fowls, soups, oranges, eggs, onions, boiled
   rice, etc., etc.  His nobles dined with him; after they had
   done, the servants sat down; and when they had finished, the
   poor took what was left.  Here the bey's twelve sheep are
   equal to Nehemiah's one ox and six choice sheep; and probably
   the mode of living between the two was nearly alike.  It is
   still the practice in the East to calculate the expenses of
   the table, not by the money paid, but by the provisions
   consumed by the guests.

   to be ascribed to the direction of Divine Providence.  He who

   In the parallel passage not only the Keri and Septuagint, but

註釋:

   Here Jerome adds, in the Vulgate, {Hucusque refertur quid in
   commentario scriptum fuerit; exin Nehemi(9120)historia texitur:}
   "Thus far do the words extend which were written in the
   register; what follows belongs to the history of Nehemiah."
   This addition is not found in the Hebrew, or any ancient
   version:  it is also wanting in the Paris and Complutensian
   Polyglotts; but is found in the Editio Prima of the Vulgate.
   What follows, however, seems to relate to a distinct oblation
   from that recorded in Ezra; and was probably made after the
   people were registered by Nehemiah, who was the Tirshatha, or
   governor, at this time, as Zerubbabel had been at the first
   return of the Jews from captivity.  Blessed be God that our
   faith and hope are not built upon the niceties of names and
   numbers, genealogy and chronology, but on the great things of
   the law and gospel.  Whatever is given to the work of God and
   his cause will surely be remembered by him (Heb 6:10).

   God they heard, but they gave no heed to God's commandments:
   and the works of God they saw, but were not mindful of his
   wonders.  Had they really considered them as miracles, they
   would have obeyed from a principle of faith and holy fear: had
   they duly considered them as mercies, they would have obeyed
   from a principle of gratitude and holy love.

   According to the law, every one above twenty years of age was
   to give half a shekel to the sanctuary for a ransom for their
   souls.  But, on account of the general poverty of the people,
   occasioned by their wars, and captivity, and by heavy
   tributes, etc., in the land of their captivity, this sum was
   reduced to the third part of a shekel.

 * the wood offering.
   It was the business of the Nethinim to procure the wood for
   the fires of the temple:  but it is probable few of them
   returned to their former masters after the captivity; and
   therefore they found it necessary to cast lots among the
   priests, Levites, and people, who should furnish the wood at
   appointed times.  This bringing of the wood to the temple at
   last became a great day; and was constituted into a feast,
   called by Josephus, [Xylophoria,] "the carrying of the wood"
   (Bell. 1. ii. c. 17. sec.6).

  7:4,5  De 17:8,9  Ps 122:5 
 * cast lots.
   Jerusalem certainly had many inhabitants at this time, but not
   sufficient to preserve the city, which was now encompassed
   with a wall, the building of which was going on fast.
   Nehemiah, therefore, obliged one-tenth of the country people
   to come and dwell in it, that the population might be
   sufficient for the defence of the city.  Some volunteered
   their services, which was at that time considered a sacrifice
   to patriotism; as Jerusalem then afforded very few advantages,
   and was a place of considerable danger:  hence "the people
   blessed them that willingly offered themselves."

   Jerusalem was the holy city, and the wall was built under the
   immediate superintendence and blessing of Jehovah:  it was
   therefore proper that it should be dedicated to that God who
   was there worshipped by solemn praises, prayers, and
   sacrifices.  The dedication seems to have consisted in
   processions of the most eminent persons around the walls, with
   thanksgivings to God, who had enabled them to bring the work
   to so happy a conclusion; and, no doubt, to all this were
   added a particular consecration of the city to God, and the
   most earnest invocation that He would take it under His
   guardianship, and defend it and its inhabitants against their
   enemies.

   Nehemiah has been thought to deal too much with God on the
   principle of merit.  That he wished God to remember him for
   good is sufficiently evident, and who does not wish the same?
   But that he expected heaven for his good deeds does not
   appear; for it is perfectly clear that he expected nothing
   from God but through the greatness of his mercy.

            CONCLUDING REMARKS ON THE BOOK OF NEHEMIAH.

 Of Nehemiah, the author and principal actor in the events
 recorded in this book, the Jews speak as one of the greatest men
 of their nation.  His concern for his country entitles him to
 the character of the first patriot that ever lived.  Descended,
 according to some, of the family of Aaron, or according to
 others, of the tribe of Judah and allied to the royal family of
 David, in the course of Divine Providence, he was a captive in
 Babylon:  but there his excellences were so apparent, that he
 was chosen by the Persian king to fill an office the most
 respectable and the most confidential in the whole court.  Here
 he lived in ease and affluence:  he lacked no good thing; and
 here he might have continued to live, in the same affluence, and
 in the same confidence; but he could enjoy neither, so long as
 he knew his people distressed, the sepulchres of his fathers
 trodden under foot, the altars of his God overturned, and his
 worship either totally neglected or corrupted.  He sought the
 peace of Jerusalem; prayed for it; and was willing to sacrifice
 wealth, ease, safety, and even life itself, if he might be the
 instrument of restoring the desolations of Israel.  And God, who
 saw the desire of his heart, and knew the excellences with which
 he had endowed him, granted his request, and gave him the high
 honour of restoring the desolated city of his ancestors, and the
 pure worship of their God.  The opposition of Sanballat and the
 Samaritans, and the firmness and zeal with which he repelled
 their insults and ineffectual efforts cannot be read without the
 liveliest emotions; and will afford to the latest times, a noble
 and animating example of distinguished patriotism, united with
 the sincerest devotion to the interests of religion.  The virtue
 and piety of this great and good man, appear with equal lustre
 in the numerous and important reformations he effected.  He
 relieved the people from their hardships and oppressions, by
 abolishing the harsh and usurious practices of the nobles and
 rulers; gave up his own revenue, as governor of the province,
 for the benefit of the people; and, as a further means of
 conciliating their affections, exhibited an example of the most
 princely hospitality.  As the best security for good morals, and
 the better observance of the laws of God, he re-established the
 offices of public worship, and prevented the profanation of the
 sabbath, which had arrived at a shameful excess; he furnished
 the returned captives with authentic registers, and enabled
 them, in the best manner possible, after so long and calamitous
 an interval, to trace the genealogies, and claim the inheritance
 of their respective families; and further, he accomplished the
 separation of the Jewish people from the mixed multitude, with
 which they had been incorporated, and annulled the numerous
 marriages which they had made with heathens and idolaters of
 every description.  For disinterestedness, philanthropy,
 patriotism, prudence, courage, zeal, humanity, and every virtue
 that constitutes a great mind, and proves a soul in deep
 communion with God, Nehemiah will ever stand conspicuous among
 the greatest men of the Jewish nation; and an exemplar worthy of
 being copied by the first patriots in every nation under heaven.
