Nehemiah 8:12 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Ezra began by blessing the Lord, the great God, perhaps with a sentence of thanksgiving, as David did, 1 Chronicles 29:10, but scarcely by using a whole psalm, as in 1 Chronicles 16:8. To this thanksgiving the people answered Amen, Amen (comp. 1 Chronicles 16:36), lifting up their hands (ידיהם בּמעל, with lifting up of their hands; the form מעל occurring only here), and worshipping the Lord, bowing down towards the ground.
