Ezra 9:1 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The start, the journey, and the arrival at Jerusalem. - Ezra 8:31 The start from the river Ahava (comp. Ezra 8:15) did not take place till the twelfth day of the first month; while according to Ezra 7:9, the journey from Babylon was appointed for the first day of the month, and according to Ezra 8:15, the bands of travellers who assembled at the river Ahava encamped there three days. These statements may be reconciled as follows: On the first day the company of travellers began to assemble, and during the three days' encampment at the place of meeting Ezra became aware that no Levites were found among the travellers; upon which he took the measures mentioned, Ezra 8:16, etc., to induce certain Levites and Nethinim to accompany them. When these were afterwards present, Ezra ordained a fast, to supplicate the divine protection for the journey, and committed the sacred gifts to the care of the priests and Levites. Eight days elapsed while these preparations for departure were being made, so that the start from the river Ahava did not take place till the twelfth day. The journey was successfully accomplished, God's gracious protection delivering them from the hands of enemies and marauders; comp. Ezra 8:22.
