And that which the rest of the people gave was twenty
thousand drachms of gold
Worth as many pounds of our money, and somewhat more:
and two thousand pound of silver; of which (See Gill on Nehemiah 7:71):
and threescore and seven priests' garments;
having been so long in Babylon, and no use of sacrifices, and so not of garments to minister in, no care was taken to provide any; which seems to be the reason why so many were given, when they returned to their own land, and sacrificed.
