(13) And their brethren, heads of the house of their fathers.--We can hardly suppose so many as 1,760 priestly clans dwelling in the holy city. Either the phrase "heads of their father-houses" belongs to the last verse, and has been accidentally brought into its present position; or in this instance it means simply "heads of single families;" or "their brethren, heads of their (respective) clans," refers to other father-houses not mentioned by name, and the number 1,760 refers to all the guilds and clans of 1Chronicles 9:10-13, and should be separated from the preceding phrase by a semicolon. This last explanation is probably right. The total number given in Nehemiah 11:10-14 for the priests is 1,192. (See Note on 1Chronicles 9:9.)

Very able men.--See Margin, and 1Chronicles 7:9.

For the work.--"For" is wanting in the Hebrew. Perhaps "doers of" (Nehemiah 11:13) has Mien out. . . .
