SEV Biblia, Chapter 13:4 Y antes de esto, Eliasib sacerdote, había sido prepósito de la cámara de la Casa de nuestro Dios, pariente de Tobías,
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nehemiah 13:4 Verse 4. Eliashib the priest] Perhaps this was a different person from Eliashib the high priest; but there is no indubitable evidence that he was not the same. If he was high priest, he was very unfaithful to the high charge which he had received; and a reproach to the priesthood. He had married his grandson to Sanballat's daughter: this produced a connection with Tobiah, the fast friend of Sanballat; in whose favour he polluted the house of God, giving him one of the chambers for his ordinary residence, which were appointed for the reception of the tithes, oblations, &c., that came to the house of God.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 4. And before this , etc.] Before the above law was read, and observed and acted upon: Eliashib the priest ; whom some take to be a common priest; so Bishop Usher f81 ; but he seems rather to be the high priest, by comparing it with ( Nehemiah 13:28), having the oversight of the chamber of the house of our God ; which has led some to the notion of his being a common priest; but chamber may be put for chambers, and those for the whole house or temple, which the high priest had the greatest concern in, and oversight of: was allied to Tobiah ; the servant and Ammonite, an inveterate enemy of the Jews, ( Nehemiah 2:10,20), having married a daughter of Shecaniah, and his son a daughter of Meshullam, who were both priests, and so as it seems related to Eliashib, ( Nehemiah 6:18).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-9 - Israel was a peculiar people, and not to mingle with the nations. Se the benefit of publicly reading the word of God; when it is dul attended to, it discovers to us sin and duty, good and evil, and show wherein we have erred. We profit, when we are thus wrought upon to separate from evil. Those that would drive sin out of their hearts, the living temples, must throw out its household stuff, and all the provision made for it; and take away all the things that are the foo and fuel of lust; this is really to mortify it. When sin is cast out of the heart by repentance, let the blood of Christ be applied to it by faith, then let it be furnished with the graces of God's Spirit, for every good work.
