    Barnes' Notes on Nehemiah 12:24

    Jeshua the son of Kadmiel - If the reading be sound, this Jeshua must have been the head of the Levitical family of Kadmiel in the time of Joiakim; but (compare Nehemiah 8:7; Nehemiah 9:4), some read "Jeshua, Bani, Kadmiel," etc.

    Ward over against ward - i. e., "alternately," one part of the choir corresponding the other.
