Coke's Commentary on the Holy Bible

Nehemiah

- Nehemiah

by Thomas Coke

THE Book of NEHEMIAH.

SEE the introductory note to the book of Ezra. Nehemiah, who, it is plain from this book, was a person of considerable eminence in the court of Persia, here takes up the history of the Jews from the period at which Ezra had discontinued it, and carries it down from the twentieth year of Artaxerxes, in the year of the world 3550, to the year 3580, which is supposed to be the year of his own death, and was in the reign of Darius Nothus. See the note on ch. Nehemiah 12:22.
