SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:17 También tuve ciento cincuenta hombres de los judíos y magistrados, y los que venían a nosotros de los gentiles que están en nuestros contornos a mi mesa.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nehemiah 5:17 Verse 17. A hundred and fifty of the Jews] He kept open house, entertained all comers; besides having one hundred and fifty Jews who had their food constantly at his table, and at his expense. To be able to bear all these expenses, no doubt Nehemiah had saved money while he was cup-bearer to the Persian king in Susa.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. Moreover, there were at my table an hundred and fifty of the Jews and rulers , etc.] Every day at his own cost, which must be considerable to provide for such a number, and of such rank: besides those that came unto us from among the Heathen that are about us ; who were proselytes, and came thither to worship, or on a civil account, to give intelligence, and take directions.
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 __________________________________________________________________
