    SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:11

    Y reprendí a los magistrados, y dije: ¿Por qué está la Casa de Dios desamparada? Y los junté, y los puse en su lugar.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nehemiah 13:11

    Verse 11. Why is the
    house of God forsaken?] They had all solemnly promised, chap. x. 39, that they would never forsake the house of their God; but, alas, how soon is this forgotten! Nehemiah used their own words here by way of reproof.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. Then I
    contended with the rulers ; etc.] The ecclesiastical rulers, the priests that were appointed over those chambers, ( Nehemiah 12:44), he expostulated with them warmly, and chode them severely for their conduct: and said, why is the house of God forsaken ? no care being taken of the maintenance of the ministers of it, contrary to the promise made ( Nehemiah 10:37), and l gathered them together ; the Levites and singers that were dispersed in the countries round about: and set them in their place ; in the temple, and in the course of their ministry there.

    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.
