John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Nehemiah 9:4

Then stood up upon the stairs of the Levites
On an ascent; an elevated place where the Levites used to stand when they sang at the time of sacrifice, and where they might be seen and heard by the people:

Jeshua and Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and
Chenani;
who seem to be all Levites, see ( Nehemiah 8:7 ) ,

and cried with a loud voice unto the Lord their God;
praying with great fervency, and making bitter lamentation for the sins of the people and their own.
