Matthew Henry's Commentary – Chapter 11
Chapter 11

Jerusalem was walled round, but it was not as yet fully inhabited, and therefore was weak and despicable. Nehemiah’s next care is to bring people into it; of that we have here an account. I. The methods taken to replenish it, Neh. 11:1, 2. II. The principal persons that resided there, of Judah and Benjamin (Neh. 11:3-9), of the priests and Levites, Neh. 11:10-19. III. The several cities and villages of Judah and Benjamin that were peopled by the rest of their families, Neh. 11:20-36.
