    Clarke's Commentary on Nehemiah 11:36

    And of the Levites were divisions - The Levites had their dwellings in the divisions of Judah and Benjamin. This is probably the meaning: the Syriac says, They had the half of Judah and Benjamin; which is not likely.

    That the people whose hearts were now turned towards the Lord, would make the best provision for the support of God's work, and all those engaged in it, we may naturally suppose; but this could not be very great, as the complete service was not yet established, and the Levites themselves were few in number.

    Barnes' Notes on Nehemiah 11:36

    Of the Levites were divisions - i. e., "the Levites were scattered among various towns both in Judah and Benjamin."
