SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:16 Además de esto, en la obra de este muro restauré mi parte, y no compramos heredad; y todos mis criados juntos estaban allí a la obra.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nehemiah 5:16 Verse 16. Neither bought we any land] Neither he nor his officers took any advantage of the necessities of the people, to buy their lands, &c. He even made his own servants to work at the wall.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 16. Yea, also I continued in the work of this wall , etc.] Of building the wall of Jerusalem; here he gave his constant attendance to direct and encourage the workmen, and see that they kept to their work, and did it well: neither bought we any land ; neither he nor the principal men with him, though they could have bought it cheap, but they chose not to take the advantage of the poverty of the people: and all my servants were gathered thither unto the work : all were employed in it, taking no wages for their work, being maintained at his expense.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 14-19 - Those who truly fear God, will not dare to do any thing cruel of unjust. Let all who are in public places remember that they are s placed to do good, not to enrich themselves. Nehemiah mentions it to God in prayer, not as if he had merited any favour from God, but to show that he depended upon God only, to make up to him what he had los and laid out for his honour. Nehemiah evidently spake and acted as on that knew himself to be a sinner. He did not mean to claim a reward a of debt, but in the manner that the Lord rewards a cup of cold wate given to a disciple for his sake. The fear and love of God in the heart, and true love of the brethren, will lead to every good work These are proper evidences of justifying faith; and our reconciled God will look upon persons of this character for good, according to all they have done for his people __________________________________________________________________
