SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:8 Y junto a ellos restauró Uziel hijo de Harhaía, de los plateros; junto al cual restauró también Hananías, hijo de Haracahim (un perfumero ). Y restauraron a Jerusalén hasta el muro ancho.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nehemiah 3:8 Verse 8. Goldsmiths.] From the remotest period of the history of the Jews they had artists in all elegant and ornamental trades; and it is also evident that goldsmiths, apothecaries, and merchants were formed into companies in the time of Nehemiah.
Apothecaries] Rather such as dealt in drugs, aromatics, spices, &c., for embalming, or for furnishing the temple with the incense consumed there.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 8. Next unto him repaired Uzziel the son of Harhaiah, of the goldsmiths , etc.] Or Tzorephim, which, according to Jarchi, was the name of a family so called from their trade and business: next unto him also repaired Hananiah the son of one of the apothecaries ; or confectioners, which also might be the name of a family so called for the same reason: and they fortified Jerusalem unto the broad wall ; which reached from the gate of Ephraim to the corner gate, which was broken down by Joash, king of Israel, but was rebuilt so strong by Uzziah, king of Judah, that it stood firm to this time; wherefore these men repaired up to it, but left that as they found it; (see 2 Chronicles 25:23 26:9), and were not careful to repair it, it not wanting any repair.
Matthew Henry Commentary The rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem.
--The work was divided, so that every one might know what he had to do and mind it, with a desire to excel; yet without contention, or separate interests. No strife appears among them, but which should d most for the public good. Every Israelite should lend a hand toward the building up of Jerusalem. Let not nobles think any thing below them, by which they may advance the good of their country. Even some female helped forward the work. Some repaired over against their houses, an one repaired over against his chamber. When a general good work is to be done, each should apply himself to that part which is within his reach. If every one will sweep before his own door, the street will be clean; if every one will mend one, we shall all be mended. Some tha had first done helped their fellows. The walls of Jerusalem, in heap of rubbish, represent the desperate state of the world around, whil the number and malice of those who hindered the building, give some faint idea of the enemies we have to contend with, while executing the work of God. Every one must begin at home; for it is by getting the work of God advanced in our own souls that we shall best contribute to the good of the church of Christ. May the Lord thus stir up the heart of his people, to lay aside their petty disputes, and to disregar their worldly interests, compared with building the walls of Jerusalem and defending the cause of truth and godliness against the assaults of avowed enemies __________________________________________________________________
