Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Nehemiah 12:47

_ _ all Israel ... sanctified holy things unto the Levites, — etc. The people, selecting the tithes and first-fruits, devoted them to the use of the Levites, to whom they belonged by appointment of the law. The Levites acted in the same way with the tithes due from them to the priests. Thus all classes of the people displayed a conscientious fidelity in paying the dues to the temple and the servants of God who were appointed to minister in it.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Nehemiah 12:44-47.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Nehemiah 12:47

Sanctified — They set apart the first — fruits and tithes from their own share, and devoted them to the use of the Levites. And so did the Levites by the tithe of the tithes. Thus they all conscientiously paid their dues, and did not profane those things which God had sanctified, nor take them into their own common use. When what is contributed for the support of religion, is given with an eye to God, it is sanctified, and will cause the blessing to rest upon the house, and all that is therein.
