Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Nehemiah 8:18

_ _ Also day by day ... he read in the book of the law of God — This was more than was enjoined (Deuteronomy 31:10-12), and arose from the exuberant zeal of the time.

_ _ on the eighth day was a solemn assembly — This was the last and great day of the feast (see on Numbers 29:35). In later times, other ceremonies which increased the rejoicing were added (John 7:37).
