Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Nehemiah 8:7-8

_ _ caused the people to understand the law ... gave the sense — Commentators are divided in opinion as to the import of this statement. Some think that Ezra read the law in pure Hebrew, while the Levites, who assisted him, translated it sentence by sentence into Chaldee, the vernacular dialect which the exiles spoke in Babylon. Others maintain that the duty of these Levites consisted in explaining to the people, many of whom had become very ignorant, what Ezra had read.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Nehemiah 8:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Nehemiah 8:7

Understand — As well the words, which being Hebrew, now needed to be translated into the Chaldee or Syriack language, now, the common language of that people, who together with their religion, had also in a great part lost their language; as also the meaning of them: they expounded the mind and will of God in what they read, and applied it to the peoples present condition. Place — That is, In their several places and stations into which the company seems to have been distributed for conveniency of hearing; it not being likely that so vast a congregation could distinctly hear one man's voice. Or, by their stations, that is, by the several stations of the Levites, and persons last named; who seem to have had several scaffolds, by comparing this with Nehemiah 9:4, upon which thy stood, as Ezra did upon his pulpit, Nehemiah 8:4.
