Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezra 2:69

_ _ drams of gold — rather, “darics,” a Persian coin (see on 1 Chronicles 29:7).

_ _ priests’ garments — (compare Nehemiah 7:70). This — in the circumstances — was a very appropriate gift. In general, it may be remarked that presents of garments, or of any other usable commodities, however singular it may seem to us, is in harmony with the established notions and customs of the East.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezra 2:64-70.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezra 2:69

Sixty one thousand drams — Sixty one thousand drams of gold amount to something more than so many pounds of our money. So bishop Cumberland, who likewise supposes five thousand pounds of silver, to be about thirty seven thousand pounds sterling.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezra 2:69

They gave after their ability unto the treasure of the work threescore and one thousand (n) drams of gold, and five thousand (o) pounds of silver, and one hundred priests' garments.

(n) Which in our money amounts to 24,826 pounds, 13 shillings and 4 pence, valuing the french crown at 6 shillings and 4 pence for the dram is the eighth part of an ounce, and the ounce the eighth part of a mark.

(o) Which are called "mina" and contain 2 marks apiece, so 50,000 minas make 55,000 franks which in our money amounts to 69,666 pounds, 13 shillings and 4 pence so that the whole sum was 94,493 pounds, 6 shillings, and 8 pence.
