    Definitions for Nehemiah 11:2

    Blessed - Happy.

    Clarke's Commentary on Nehemiah 11:2

    All the men that willingly offered - Some volunteered their services, which was considered a sacrifice to patriotism at that time, as Jerusalem afforded very few advantages, and was a place of considerable danger; hence the people spoke well of them, and no doubt prayed for God's blessing upon them.
