    Clarke's Commentary on Nehemiah 5:19

    Think upon me, my God, for good - Nehemiah wishes for no reward from man; and he only asks mercy at the hand of his God for what his providence enabled him to do; and which, according to the good hand of his God upon him, he had done faithfully. He does not offer his good deeds to God in extenuation of his sins, or as a compensation for the heaven he expected. Nothing of the kind: he simply says, what any good man might say, My God, as I have done good to them, so do good to me; or as the poet has sung: -

    "Teach me to feel another's wo,

    To hide the fault I:see:

    The mercy I to others show,

    That mercy show to me!"

    Pope.

    This is according to the precept of Christ: "Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven; give, and it shall be given unto you."

    Wesley's Notes on Nehemiah 5:19

    5:19 According - As I have done thy people good for thy sake, so do me good for thine own sake; for thou art pleased, and hast promised graciously to reward us according to our works, and to mete to men the same measure which they meet to others.
