Treasury of Scripture

Shemaiah, and Joiarib, Jedaiah,

Joiarib.

Nehemiah 11:10
Of the priests: Jedaiah the son of Joiarib, Jachin.

1 Chronicles 9:10
And of the priests; Jedaiah, and Jehoiarib, and Jachin,

Jehoiarib.









(6) And Joiarib.--The "and" begins the list of those who did not seal the covenant. See a like "and" in Nehemiah 12:19.

Verse 6. - And Joiarib. The introduction of the conjunction "and" here, and here only, in this list separates off very markedly the last six names from the first sixteen. A similar division is made in ver. 19. The reason for the division seems to be that these last six courses, though including some of the very highest priestly families, as those of Joiarib and Jedaiah (1 Chronicles 24:7; Ezra 2:36; Nehemiah 7:39; Nehemiah 11:10), for some reason or other, did not seal to the covenant, whereas the other sixteen courses did so. Jedaiah. The double occurrence of this name (in vers. 6 and 7) would naturally raise a suspicion of corruption; but the two Jedaiahs are confirmed by vers. 19, 21.
