Nehemiah 2

Nisan

first month i.e. April.

Tobiah

Two Tobiahs are distinguished by many:

(1) "Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite," Nehemiah 2:10,19; 4:3,7 6:1,12,14.

(2) A Jew, unable to prove his genealogy. But the reference to the latter (Nehemiah 7:62) indicates that he was already dead. But one Tobiah, and he the Ammonite, is active in this book.
