Wesley's Notes for Nehemiah 3:9


3:9 Half part - As Rome was anciently divided into several quarters or regions, so was Jerusalem; and especially into two parts, whereof one was in the tribe of Benjamin, and nearest the temple, the other in the tribe of Judah, these accordingly had two several rulers, this man and the other, ver.#12|, but both under the chief governor of the city.
