Nehemiah 8:13 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

And Jeshua, Bani, etc., the Levites, expounded the law to the people (הבין, to cause to understand, here to instruct, by expounding the law). The ו copulative before הלויּם must certainly have been inserted in the text by a clerical error; for the previously named thirteen (or fourteen) persons are Levites, of whom Jeshua, Bani, Sherebiah, and Hodijah occur again, Nehemiah 9:4-5. The names Jeshua, Sherebiah, Shabtai, and Jozabad are also met with Nehemiah 12:14; Nehemiah 11:16, but belong in these latter passages to other individuals who were heads of classes of Levites.
