    Clarke's Commentary on Ezra 10:8

    All his substance should be forfeited - To the use of the temple.

    So the Septuagint understood the place: Αναθεματισθησεται πασα ἡ ὑπαρξις αυτου, "All his substance shall be devoted to a holy use."

    Himself separated - Excommunicated from the Church of God, and exiled from Israel.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezra 10:8

    Separated from the congregation - i. e., "excommunicated" (compare Exodus 12:19; Numbers 19:20, etc.). The power assigned to Ezra is stated in Ezra 7:25-26.
