Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezra 2:68

_ _ some of the chief of the fathers, when they came to the house of the Lord offered freely for the house of God, etc. — The sight of a place hallowed by the most endearing and sacred associations, but now lying in desolation and ruins, made the wellsprings of their piety and patriotism gush out afresh. Before taking any active measures for providing accommodation to themselves and their families, the chief among them raised a large sum by voluntary contributions towards the restoration of the temple.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezra 2:64-70.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezra 2:68

The house — That is, to the ruins of the house; or to the place were it stood.
