Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Nehemiah 7:70

_ _ And some of the chief of the fathers, etc. — With Nehemiah 7:69 the register ends, and the thread of Nehemiah’s history is resumed. He was the tirshatha, or governor, and the liberality displayed by him and some of the leading men for the suitable equipment of the ministers of religion, forms the subject of the remaining portion of the chapter. Their donations consisted principally in garments. This would appear a singular description of gifts to be made by any one among us; but, in the East, a present of garments, or of any article of use, is conformable to the prevailing sentiments and customs of society.

_ _ drams of gold — that is, darics. A daric was a gold coin of ancient Persia.
