    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:22

    Los levitas en días de Eliasib, de Joiada, de Johanán y de Jadúa, fueron inscritos por cabezas de familias; también los sacerdotes, hasta el reinado de Darío el Persa.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nehemiah 12:22

    Verse 22. Jaddua] This was probably the
    high priest who went in his pontifical robes, accompanied by his brethren, to meet Alexander the Great, when he was advancing towards Jerusalem, with the purpose to destroy it, after having conquered Tyre and Gaza. Alexander was so struck with the appearance of the priest, that he forbore all hostilities against Jerusalem, prostrated himself before Jaddua, worshipped the Lord at the temple, and granted many privileges to the Jews. See Josephus, ANT. lib.

    xi., c. 3, and Prideaux's Connections, lib. 7, p. 695.

    To the reign of Darius the Persian.] Calmet maintains that this must have been Darius Codomanus, who was defeated by Alexander the Great: but Archbishop Usher understands it of Darius Nothus, in whose reign he thinks Jaddua was born, who was high priest under Darius Codomanus.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 22. The Levites, in the days of Eliashib, etc.] The third priest of the second temple: Joiada ; he was the son of Eliashib, and the fourth high priest: and Johanan ; the same with Jonathan, ( Nehemiah 12:11) and whom Josephus also calls Joannes: and Jaddua ; the same as in ( Nehemiah 12:10) in the days of each of these were recorded chief of the fathers ; the principal men among the Levites: also the priests, to the reign of Darius the Persian ; thought to be Darius Codomannus, the last king of the Persian monarchy, whom Alexander conquered; and if so, this verse must be inserted after the death of Nehemiah, and as the next verse also seems to be; for these two verses interrupt the natural order of the relation: an account is given of the priests in the times of Joiakim, ( Nehemiah 12:12-21), these verses being inserted, the account goes on, ( Nehemiah 12:24), etc. of the chief of the Levites in the times of Joiakim only.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-26 - It is a
    debt we owe to faithful ministers, to remember our guides, wh have spoken to us the word of God. It is good to know what our godl predecessors were, that we may learn what we should be.
