Nehemiah 11:3

Nehemiah 11:3

Now these are the chief of the province that dwelt in
Jerusalem
That is, of Judea, reduced to a province by the king of Babylon, and now a province of the Persian monarchy:

but in the cities of Judah dwelt everyone in his possession in their
cities;
in which they or their ancestors had formerly dwelt: to wit, Israel: the people in general of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, and such of the other tribes that returned with them:

the priests, and the Levites, and the Nethinims, and the children of
Solomon's servants;
of whom see ( Ezra 2:55 Ezra 2:58 ) .
