Ezra 7:17 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The commission given by Artachshasta to Ezra (Ezra 7:11), with a short postscript by Ezra (Ezra 7:27 and Ezra 7:28). - Ezra 7:11 The introductory title, "This is the copy of the letter," On פּרשׁגן, comp. Ezra 4:11, and on נשׁתּון, Ezra 4:7. Ezra is here, as also in the letter itself, Ezra 7:12, Ezra 7:21, and in Nehemiah 8:9; Nehemiah 12:26, called only הסּופר הכּהן, the priest, the scribe; in other places we find merely one title or the other: either the priest, Nehemiah 10:10, Nehemiah 10:16, Nehemiah 8:2; or the scribe, Nehemiah 8:4, Nehemiah 8:13; Nehemiah 12:36. To designate him according to his rank, as the priest, seems to have subsequently become more customary; hence in the first book of Esdras he is constantly called ὁ Ἱιερεύς. הסּופר is explained by the addition וגו דּברי ספר, scribe of the words of the law of Jahve and of His statutes to Israel, i.e., the scribe, whose investigations referred to the law of God. More briefly in Ezra 7:12 and Ezra 7:21 : scribe of the law.
