Nehemiah 5:17

_ _ Moreover there were at my table an hundred and fifty of the Jews — In the East it has been always customary to calculate the expense of a king’s or grandee’s establishment, not by the amount of money disbursed, but by the quantity of provisions consumed (see 1 Kings 4:22; 1 Kings 18:19; Ecclesiastes 5:11).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Nehemiah 5:14-19.

Rulers — Not only Jews of the inferior sort, for whom meaner provisions might suffice, but also their rulers, for whom better provision was fit; who resorted to him upon all occasions, to give him notice of the enemies designs; or to receive his orders.
