We read of the Nethinims in 1 Chronicles 9:2 and in Ezra 2:43; Ezr 2:58 etc. and Nehemiah 3:26, etc. but no where else in Scripture. Perhaps the name is derived from Nathan, gift; and it is probable, that as we are told, (Ezra 8:20) David had appointed them for service to the Lecvites, who were of the lower order of those who ministered in the temple. But we know nothing more concerning them. Many will be found at the last day, it is to be hoped, among those who, when upon earth, were but "as hewers of wood, and drawers of water, to the sanctuary," whom Jesus will own for his Nethinims, the gift of the Father to the Son, who lived and died unnoticed, and, for the most part, unknown to men, like some sweet fragrant flower of the mountain, but in everlasting remembrance in the sight of God.
