SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:8 Acuérdate ahora de la palabra que ordenaste a Moisés tu siervo, diciendo: Si vosotros prevaricareis, yo os esparciré por los pueblos;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nehemiah 1:8 Verse 8. Thy servant Moses] See the parallel places in the margin, and the notes there. Though in an enemy's country, and far from the ordinances of God, Nehemiah did not forget the law: he read his Bible well, and quotes correctly.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 8. Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses , etc.] To publish and declare to the children of Israel, ( Deuteronomy 28:64 30:3-5), saying, if ye transgress ; the law of God: I will scatter you abroad among the nations ; as now they had been among the Assyrians, Chaldeans, Medes, and Persians.
Matthew Henry Commentary Nehemiah's distress for the misery of Jerusalem, His prayer.
--Nehemiah was the Persian king's cup-bearer. When God has work to do he will never want instruments to do it with. Nehemiah lived at ease and in honour, but does not forget that he is an Israelite, and tha his brethren are in distress. He was ready to do them all the goo offices he could; and that he might know how best to do them kindness, he makes inquiries about them. We should inquire especiall concerning the state of the church and religion. Every Jerusalem of this side the heavenly one will have some defect, which will requir the help and services of its friends. Nehemiah's first application wa to God, that he might have the fuller confidence in his application to the king. Our best pleas in prayer are taken from the promise of God the word on which he has caused us to hope. Other means must be used but the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails most Communion with God will best prepare us for our dealings with men. When we have intrusted our concerns to God, the mind is set at liberty; i feels satisfaction and composure, and difficulties vanish. We know tha if the affair be hurtful, he can easily hinder it; and if it be goo for us, he can as easily forward it __________________________________________________________________
