Nehemiah 7 DBY/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)

While the gatekeepers are still on duty, have them shut the doors and bar them. Also appoint residents of Jerusalem as guards, some at their posts and some near their own houses."

I found the genealogical record of those who had been the first to return. This is what I found written there:
