Nehemiah 6:9 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Nehemiah sent messengers to them, saying: "I am doing a great work, and I cannot come down thither. Why should the work cease whilst I leave it and come down to you?" That is, he let them know that he could not undertake the journey, because his presence in Jerusalem was necessary for the uninterrupted prosecution of the work of building.
