SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:10 ¶ Y entendí que las partes de los levitas no se les habían dado; y que los levitas y cantores que hacían la obra habían huido cada uno a su heredad.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nehemiah 13:10 Verse 10. The portions of the Levites had not been given] Hence we find they were obliged to abandon the sacred service, and betake themselves to cultivate the land for their support. This was the fault of the rulers, who permitted all these abuses.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 10. And I perceived that the portion of the Levites had not been given them , etc.] The tithes, being removed to some other place, might be converted to another use; or the people, seeing what was done by Eliashib, neglected to bring them in, as judging they would not be properly disposed of; and besides, the Levites had deserted their station upon this: for the Levites and the singers that did the work were fled everyone to his field ; to look after their country farms, or to get their living by agriculture, since there was no care taken of them at Jerusalem; (see Nehemiah 12:28,29).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10-14 - If a sacred character will not keep men from setting an evil example it must not shelter any one from deserved blame and punishment. The Levites had been wronged; their portions had not been given them. The were gone to get livelihoods for themselves and their families, for their profession would not maintain them. A maintenance not sufficient makes a poor ministry. The work is neglected, because the workmen are Nehemiah laid the fault upon the rulers. Both ministers and people, wh forsake religion and the services of it, and magistrates, who do no what they can to keep them to it, will have much to answer for. He delayed not to bring the Levites to their places again, and that jus payment should be made. Nehemiah on every occasion looked up to God and committed himself and all his affairs to Him. It pleased him to think that he had been of use to revive and support religion in his country. He here refers to God, not in pride, but with a humble appea concerning his honest intention in what he had done. He prays "Remember me;" not, Reward me. "Wipe not out my good deeds;" not Publish them, or record them. Yet he was rewarded, and his good deed recorded. God does more than we are able to ask.
