And I said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest
of the people (See Gill on Nehemiah 4:14),
the work is great and large;
the building of the wall all around the city of Jerusalem:
and we are separated upon the wall one far from another;
some at work on one part of it, and some at another, so that the distance between one another, at least in the further part, was very considerable.
