Now these are the priests and the Levites that went
up with Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and
Who went up from the captivity in Babylon to Jerusalem with them;
the one was the prince, the other the high priest, the same with
Joshua the high priest, ( Zechariah
3:1 ) , the names of the priests are given in this and the
six following verses:
Seraiah, Jeremiah, Ezra;
not Jeremiah the prophet, who cannot be thought to live so long
as through the captivity; but Ezra may be Ezra the priest and
scribe, who might come up with Zerubbabel to Jerusalem, and
return to Babylon again, and from thence come again as he did, in
the seventh year of Artaxerxes, ( Ezra 7:1Ezra 7:6Ezra 7:7 ) , though this
by some F13 is not thought very probable.
