Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Nehemiah 9:5

_ _ Then the Levites ... said, Stand up and bless the Lord your God — If this prayer was uttered by all these Levites in common, it must have been prepared and adopted beforehand, perhaps, by Ezra; but it may only embody the substance of the confession and thanksgiving.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
