And next unto them repaired Melatiah the Gibeonite, and Jadon
the Meronothite, the men of Gibeon and Mizpah
Which places were both in the tribe of Benjamin, ( Joshua 18:25 Joshua 18:26 ) and one of these men was of the one place, and the other of the other:
unto the throne of the governor on this side the river;
where the governor of those parts under the king of Persia had his seat, and now Nehemiah; but, according to Aben Ezra, Cisse, rendered "throne", is the name of a man who was the governor.
