SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:70 Y algunos de los príncipes de las familias dieron para la obra. El Tirsata dio para el tesoro mil dracmas de oro, cincuenta tazones, y quinientas treinta vestiduras sacerdotales.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Nehemiah 7:70 Verse 70. The Tirshatha gave] The Septuagint, particularly the copy in the Codex Alexandrinus, intimates that this sum was given to the Tirshatha, or Nehemiah: kai tw aqersaqa edwkan eiv qhsauron, And to the Athersatha they gave for the treasure, &c.
For the meaning of the word Tirshatha, see on Ezra ii. 63.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 70. And some of the chief of the fathers gave unto the work , etc.] Of building the city and the temple, and for that service, ( Ezra 2:68), the Tirshatha gave to the treasure a thousand drachms of gold ; each of which was one pound sterling, and so amounted to so many pounds: of these “dracmons”, or “darics”, a Persian coin, mention is made in ( Ezra 2:69), they were golden staters, or shekels and had their name as is said, not from Darius, the father of Xerxes, though it is certain, from Herodotus f42 , that he coined golden money; but from some other king of the same name, more ancient f43 , which must be Darius the Mede; and if they are the same with the Adarcon in ( Ezra 8:27) as they seem to be, then those in ( 1 Chronicles 29:7) were pieces of money not so called in the times of David, but of Ezra, the writer of that book: whether this Tirshatha was Zerubbabel, or Nehemiah, is not easy to say, since this donation is not the same with that in Ezra, not made at the same time nor are the gifts the same, nor the persons that gave them. Zerubbabel was Tirshatha when the Jews came out of Babylon, and Nehemiah now: fifty basins ; which were vessels, in the which the blood of the sacrifices was received and out of which it was sprinkled: five hundred and thirty priests’ garments ; which were laid up in the wardrobe, and used on occasion.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 5-73 - Nehemiah knew that the safety of a city, under God, depends more upo the inhabitants than upon its walls. Every good gift and every goo work are from above. God gives knowledge, he gives grace; all is of him, and therefore all must be to him. What is done by human prudence must be ascribed to the direction of Divine Providence. But woe to those who turn back from the Lord, loving this present world! and happ those who dedicate themselves, and their substance, to his service an glory __________________________________________________________________
