    Clarke's Commentary on Nehemiah 3:7

    The throne of the governor - His house, and the place where he dispensed justice and judgment. Previously to the days of Nehemiah, Jerusalem was governed by a deputy from the Persian king; (see Nehemiah 5:15); but after this time they were governed by governors and judges chosen from among themselves.

    Barnes' Notes on Nehemiah 3:7

    Unto the throne ... - The meaning is thought to be "the men of Gibeon and Mizpah, who, though they worked for Nehemiah, were not under his government, but belonged to the jurisdiction of the governor on this side the river."

    Wesley's Notes on Nehemiah 3:7

    3:7 The throne - Unto the place where the governor of the country on this side Euphrates, under the Persian kings, sometimes had a palace or throne.
