Nehemiah 11:36

_ _ And of the Levites were divisions in Judah, and in Benjamin — Rather, there were divisions for the Levites; that is, those who were not resident in Jerusalem were distributed in settlements throughout the provinces of Judah and Benjamin.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Nehemiah 11:20-36.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Nehemiah 11:36

Divisions — Or, for the Levites (those who were not settled in Jerusalem) there were divisions, places appointed for them, and distributed among them. Thus were they settled free and easy, tho' few and poor. And they might have been happy, but for that general lukewarmness, with which they are charged by the prophet Malachi, who prophesied about this time and in whom prophecy ceased for some ages, 'till it revived in the great prophet.
