    Definitions for Nehemiah 9:32

    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on Nehemiah 9:32

    On our kings, on our princes - I believe Nehemiah in this place mentions the whole of civil society in its officers as they stand related to each other in dignity: -

    1. Kings, as supreme.

    2Princes.

    3Priests.

    4. Prophets.

    5. The Fathers, heads or chiefs of tribes and families.

    6. The Common People.

    Those who disturb this natural order (for it subsists even in Britain) are enemies to the peace of the whole, whatever they may pretend to the contrary.
