5 [And my God put into my heart

to gather together the nobles, and the rulers, and the people, that they might be reckoned by genealogy. And I found the book of the genealogy of them which came up at the first, and I found written therein :] 6

and that returned unto Jerusalem and [to] Judah, every 7 one unto his city; who came

CA. 17177'. B. 7. LXX agrees with B. § 58.—NOTE. The extract from A. which Nehemiah makes, runs rather beyond the actual list of names, and gives us the first words of the third chapter of Ezra. From this we may gather that the genealogy lay embedded in the history which is in the first six chapters of Ezra, and which is wholly distinct from the second (and much later) part of the book. Copies of all such historical documents, whether written by prophetic men or not, would naturally be deposited in places of safe keeping, but Nehemiah does not tell us what the place was.
