EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)
12:1-26 It is a debt we owe to faithful ministers, to remember our guides, who have spoken to us the word of God. It is good to know what our godly predecessors were, that we may learn what we should be.In 1 Chronicles 9:17, 1 Chronicles 9:24, 1 Chronicles 9:26, four families of porters only are mentioned; six are implied here, in Nehemiah 7:45, and in Ezra 2:42. From 1 Chronicles 26:14-19 it appears that the temple had four chief gates, fronting the cardinal points, and two minor ones, "toward Asuppim," and "at Parbar." 23. The sons of Levi … were written in the book of the chronicles—that is, the public registers in which the genealogies were kept with great regularity and exactness. No text from Poole on this verse.

These were in the days of Joiakim the son of Jeshua, the son of Jozadak,.... Who was high priest in Babylon, and whose grandson was now high priest in the time referred to:

and in the days of Nehemiah the governor; the writer of this book:

and of Ezra the priest, the scribe; who was contemporary with him.

These were in the days of Joiakim the son of Jeshua, the son of Jozadak, and in the days of Nehemiah the governor, and of Ezra the priest, the scribe.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)
26. These were in the days of Joiakim &c.] As Nehemiah 12:22-23 refer to a later period than that here mentioned, this summary probably refers to the list contained in Nehemiah 12:12-21. Whether it also refers to 24–25 is a doubtful point. But the awkwardness of the verse in its present position, lends some colour to the view that Nehemiah 12:22-23 are an interpolation by the compiler.

It will be observed that two periods are mentioned, the period of Joiakim (circ. 500 b.c.), and that of Nehemiah and Ezra (460–430 b.c.). The verse was clearly written at a date considerably later than Nehemiah’s lifetime.

Nehemiah 12:26Nehemiah 12:26 is the final subscription of the two lists in Nehemiah 12:12-21 and Nehemiah 12:24, Nehemiah 12:25.
