    Ps 127:3-5; 128:2-4 Mal 2:2

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:2

    Y había quien decía: Nosotros, nuestros hijos y nuestras hijas, somos muchos; por tanto, hemos comprado grano para comer y vivir.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nehemiah 5:2

    Verse 2. We, our sons, and our
    daughters, are many] Our families are larger than we can provide for; we are obliged to go in debt; and our richer brethren take advantage of our necessitous situation, and oppress us. The details which are given in the next verse are sufficiently plain.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. For there were that said, we, our sons, and our
    daughters, are many , etc.] Not that they complained of the number of their children, for a numerous offspring was always reckoned a blessing with the Jews; but this they observed to show that their families, being large, required a considerable quantity of food to support them: therefore we take up corn for them, that we may eat and live ; that is, they were obliged to take it at an exorbitant price, which is the thing complained of; or otherwise they must starve, the rich taking the advantage of their poverty and present dearth.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-5 -
    Men prey upon their fellow-creatures: by despising the poor the reproach their Maker. Such conduct is a disgrace to any, but who can sufficiently abhor it when adopted by professing Christians? With compassion for the oppressed, we should lament the hardships which man in the world are groaning under; putting our souls into their souls stead, and remembering in our prayers and succours those who ar burdened. But let those who show no mercy, expect judgment withou mercy.
