SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:19 Mas habiéndolo oído Sanbalat horonita, y Tobías el siervo amonita, y Gesem el árabe, escarnecieron de nosotros, y nos despreciaron, diciendo: Â¿Qué es esto que hacéis vosotros? Â¿Os rebeláis contra el rey?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nehemiah 2:19 Verse 19. Geshem the Arabian] Some chief of the Arabs contiguous to Samaria, who had joined with Sanballat and Tobiah to distress the Jews, and hinder their work.
Will ye rebel against the king?] This they said in order to raise jealousies in the king's mind, and induce him to recall his ordinance.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 19. But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian , etc.] This third man might be both an Arabian by birth, and governor of some part of Arabia near Judea: heard it ; of their beginning to build: they laughed us to scorn, and despised us ; as very silly people, that undertook what they could never perform: and said ; adding threatenings to their scoffs: what is this thing that ye do ? do ye know what ye are about? have ye any authority to do it? it is unlawful, you will certainly suffer for it: will ye rebel against the king ? the king of Persia; it will be deemed rebellion and treason, and you will be taken up and treated as rebels and traitors; take care what you do, be it at your peril if you proceed.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 19, 20 - The enmity of the serpent's seed against the cause of Christ i confined to no age or nation. The application to ourselves is plain The church of God asks for our help. Is it not desolate, and exposed to assaults? Does the consideration of its low estate cause you any grief Let not business, pleasure, or the support of a party so engag attention, as that Zion and her welfare shall be nothing to you __________________________________________________________________
