SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:44 Todos éstos habían tomado mujeres extranjeras; y había mujeres de ellos que habían dado a luz hijos.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ezra 10:44 Verse 44. Some of them had wives by whom they had children.] This observation was probably intended to show that only a few of them had children; but it shows also how rigorously the law was put in execution.
According to a passage in Justin Martyr's dialogue with Trypho, a Jew, Ezra offered a paschal lamb on this occasion, and addressed the people thus: "And Ezra said to the people, This passover is our saviour and our Refuge; and if ye will be persuaded of it, and let it enter into your hearts, that we are to humble ourselves to him in a sign, and afterwards shall believe in him, this place shall not be destroyed for ever, saith the Lord of Hosts: but if ye will not believe in him, nor hearken to his preaching, ye shall be a laughing- stock to the Gentiles." -Dial. cum Tryphone, sec. 72.
This passage, Justin says, the Jews, through their enmity to Christ, blotted out of the book of Ezra. He charges them with cancelling several other places through the same spirit of enmity and opposition.
In the Hebrew text this and the following book make but one, though sometimes Neh. is distinguished as the second book of Esdras. In the Masoretic enumeration of sections, &c., both books are conjoined. This may be seen at the end of Nehemiah. I can add nothing of importance to the character of Ezra, which has already been given so much in detail in the introduction to this book.

John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 44. All these had taken strange wives , etc.] In all about one hundred and thirteen: and some of them had wives by whom they had children ; and yet they put them away, which made it the more difficult for them to do; and those that had none, it is thought to be a mark of God’s displeasure at such marriages. No mention being made of the children being put away, as Shechaniah proposed, ( Ezra 10:3), it may be concluded they were not, but were taken care of, to be educated in the true religion, and entered proselytes at a proper time; and the rather, as Ezra gave no orders about their putting away, ( Ezra 10:11).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 15-44 - The best reformers can but do their endeavour; when the Redeeme himself shall come to Zion, he shall effectually turn away ungodlines from Jacob. And when sin is repented of and forsaken, God will forgiv it; but the blood of Christ, our Sin-offering, is the only atonemen which takes away our guilt. No seeming repentance or amendment wil benefit those who reject Him, for self-dependence proves them stil unhumbled. All the names written in the book of life, are those of penitent sinners, not of self-righteous persons, who think they have n need of repentance __________________________________________________________________
