Definitions for Nehemiah 11 :24

Clarke's Commentary on Nehemiah 11 :24

Pethahiah - was at the king's hand - He was the governor appointed by the Persian king over the Jewish nation in those matters in which the civil government interfered with Jewish concerns. He no doubt fixed, levied, and received the tribute.

Barnes's Commentary on Nehemiah 11 :24

It is difficult to say what office Pethahiah filled. So far as we know, the only regular officers under the Persian system of government were the satrap, the subsatrap, the permanent royal secretary, the commandant, and the occasional commissary.

Wesley's Commentary on Nehemiah 11 :24
