Nehemiah 10:35

Nehemiah 10:35

And to bring the firstfruits of our ground
Not that they cast lots to do this, but they bound themselves with an oath, according to the law, to do it; this is the first of all the fruits of the earth, ( Exodus 23:19 ) , though Aben Ezra restrains it to the sheaf of the firstfruits, and to the two wave loaves, ( Leviticus 23:10 Leviticus 23:17 ) ,

and the firstfruits of all fruit of all trees;
which, as Aben Ezra observes, their wise men restrain to the seven kinds only mentioned in ( Deuteronomy 8:8 ) .
