Nehemiah 2

Verse 1

Nisan

first month i.e. April.

Verse 10

Tobiah

Two Tobiahs are distinguished by many:

(1) "Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite," Nehemiah 2:10; Nehemiah 2:19; Nehemiah 4:3; Nehemiah 4:7 Nehemiah 6:1; Nehemiah 6:12; Nehemiah 6:14.

(2) A Jew, unable to prove his genealogy. But the reference to the latter (Nehemiah 7:62) indicates that he was already dead. But one Tobiah, and he the Ammonite, is active in this book.

Verse 19

The obstacle of ridicule.
