John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And we came to Jerusalem, and abode there three days. Before they went about any business, delivered what was committed to them for the use of the temple, and the commissions to the king's officers; as it was but proper they should have some rest after such a fatiguing journey.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Ezra 8:32 And we came to Jerusalem, and abode there three days.

Ver. 32. And abode there three days] For necessary refreshment, after so long a journey. The body is the soul’s servant, and must therefore be kindly and fairly dealt with, ut sit par negotio, that it may be neither above nor below its business; but even with it, meet for it, Corpus sive corpor, quasi cordis por, id est, puer, sive famulus.

Peter Pett's Commentary on the Bible

Ezra 8:32

‘And we came to Jerusalem, and stayed there three days.’

Arriving in Jerusalem they rested for ‘three days’. This period would enable them to recover from the rigours of the journey and sort themselves out. The leaders’ attention would initially be required in order to keep things organised, for they had to be settled in. Including women and children there would probably have been over five thousand people to cater for. But the Jews already there would no doubt have made them welcome. We can be sure that news would have gone ahead of the caravan

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

32.Abode there three days — That is, three days before proceeding to deliver over their treasures and the king’s letter. They seem to have taken this time for rest and deliberation before commencing their work. So Nehemiah waited three days before commencing his work. Nehemiah 2:11.
