    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ezra 7:1

    Verse 1. In the
    reign of Artaxerxes] This was Artaxerxes Longimanus, the seventh of whose reign chronologers place A.M. 3547, sixty-eight years after Cyrus had sent back ZerubbHebel. - Calmet. See the introduction.

    Son of Seraiah] Either this could not have been Seraiah the high priest, who had been put to death by Nebuchadnezzar one hundred and twenty-one years before this time, or the term son here must signify only his descendants, or one of his descendants. Were it otherwise, Ezra must now be at least one hundred and twenty-two years of age, supposing him to have been born in the year of his father's death; if, indeed Seraiah the high priest was his father; but this is evidently impossible. In this place there are only sixteen generations reckoned between Ezra and Aaron, but in 1 Chron. vi. 3, 4, &c., there are not less than twenty-two. We must therefore supply the deficient generations from the above place, between Amariah son of Meraioth, 1 Chron. vi. 7, and Azariah the son of Johanan, 1 Chron. vi. 10. There are other discrepancies relative to genealogies in these historical books which it would be useless to investigate. On these differences much has been already said in different parts of this comment.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1-5 . Now after these things , etc.] The finishing of the temple, and the dedication of it, and keeping the passover: in the reign of Artaxerxes king of Persia ; in the seventh year of his reign, ( Ezra 7:7,8), who is the same with Darius in the preceding chapter; so Jarchi and Aben Ezra; (See Gill on “ Ezra 6:14”). Ezra the son of Seraiah ; the high priest slain by Nebuchadnezzar ( Jeremiah 52:24,27), this Ezra was a younger son of his, brother to Josedech, and uncle to Joshua, who were high priests in succession; his pedigree is carried in the ascending line up to Aaron, in this and the four following verses; only six generations, for brevity sake, are omitted, between Azariah and Meraioth, which may be supplied from ( Chronicles 6:7-10), (See Gill on “ 1 Chronicles 6:3.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-10 - Ezra went from
    Babylon to Jerusalem, for the good of his country. The king was kind to him; he granted all his requests, whatever Ezr desired to enable him to serve his country. When he went, many wen with him; he obtained favour from his king, by the Divine favour. Ever creature is that to us, which God makes it to be. We must see the han of God in the events that befall us, and acknowledge him with thankfulness.
