SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:23 ¶ Vi asimismo en aquellos días judíos que habían tomado mujeres de Asdod, amonitas, y moabitas;
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 23. In those days also I saw Jews that married wives of Ashdod, of Ammon, and of Moab .] Ashdod, or Azotus, as it is called in ( Acts 8:40), was one of the five cities of the Philistines; which, though none of the seven nations with whom marriage was forbid, yet it was very unfit and improper to marry with them, ( Judges 14:3). This place was a mart of the Arabians f88 , where they sold their goods, to which the Jews might resort, and thereby be ensnared into such marriages; and which with the Ammonites and Moabites were unlawful, ( Nehemiah 13:1).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 23-31 - If either parent be ungodly, corrupt nature will incline the children to take after that one; which is a strong reason why Christians shoul not be unequally yoked. In the education of children, great care shoul be taken about the government of their tongues; that they learn not the language of Ashdod, no impious or impure talk, no corrup communication. Nehemiah showed the evil of these marriages. Some, mor obstinate than the rest, he smote, that is, ordered them to be beate by the officers according to the law, De 25:2, 3. Here are Nehemiah' prayers on this occasion He prays, "Remember them, O my God." Lord convince and convert them; put them in mind of what they should be an do. The best services to the public have been forgotten by those for whom they were done, therefore Nehemiah refers himself to God, to recompense him. This may well be the summary of our petitions; we nee no more to make us happy than this; Remember me, O my God, for good. We may humbly hope that the Lord will remember us and our services although, after lives of unwearied activity and usefulness, we shal still see cause to abhor ourselves and repent in dust and ashes, and to cry out with Nehemiah, Spare me, O my God, according to the greatnes of they mercy __________________________________________________________________
