Nehemiah 2:10 Parallel
Commentary
Geneva Study Bible

When {e} Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, heard of it, it grieved them exceedingly that there was come a man to seek the welfare of the children of Israel.

(e) These were great enemies to the Jews, and laboured always both by force and subtilty to overcome them and Tobiah, because his wife was a Jewess, knew of their affairs and so brought them great trouble.

Scofield Reference Notes

[1] Tobiah

Two Tobiahs are distinguished by many:

(1) "Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite," Neh 2:10,19 4:3,7 6:1,12,14.

(2) A Jew, unable to prove his genealogy. But the reference to the latter (Neh 7:62) indicates that he was already dead. But one Tobiah, and he the Ammonite, is active in this book.Nehemiah 2:10 Parallel Commentaries

We have here the only Old Testament type yet unfilfilled; the only Jewish festival which has
