SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:1 Â¶ Y estos son los hijos de la provincia que subieron de la cautividad, de la transmigración que Nabucodonosor rey de Babilonia hizo traspasar a Babilonia, y que volvieron a Jerusalén y a Judá, cada uno a su ciudad;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ezra 2:1 Verse 1. These are the children of the province] That is, of Judea; once a kingdom, and a flourishing nation; now a province, subdued, tributary, and ruined! Behold the goodness and severity of God! Some think Babylon is meant by the province; and that the children of the province means those Jews who were born in Babylon. But the first is most likely to be the meaning, for thus we find Judea styled, chap. v. 8. Besides, the province is contradistinguished from Babylon even in this first verse, The children of the province-that had been carried away unto Babylon.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. Now these are the children of the province , etc.] Either of the province of Babylon, as Aben Ezra, where they were either born, or had dwelt for many years; or else rather, according to Jarchi, of the province of Judea, as it is called, ( Ezra 5:8) once a flourishing kingdom, but reduced to a province of the Babylonian monarchy, now in the hands of the Medes and Persians, of which province they and their fathers originally were: that went out of the captivity, of those which had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had carried away unto Babylon ; who either in person, or in their parents, were carried captive by him, and who were the tribes of Judah and Benjamin; and they are only mentioned, because they were the principal that returned, though there were some of the other tribes that also came up with them: and came again unto Jerusalem and Judah, everyone unto his city ; that he dwelt in before, or was now assigned to him by lot, (see Nehemiah 11:1), etc.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-35 - An account was kept of the families that came up out of captivity. Se how sin lowers a nation, which righteousness would exalt!
