Nehemiah 11

This perked right along, allowing me to regain some of the lost time as I prepare for a few more days off in the coming months. But it also showed some of my inconsistency of rendering. Sometimes I use child of and sometimes the child of.

But there are variations in the forms of the many lists of people. Some seem more rapid-fire than others. So the performance should be swift. Sometimes I am just reading for all the singers I know, who believe and who do not, just like me, or both at once, in the body or out of the body, I do not know.

The singers are under the command of the king in this chapter. They are prophets (1 Chronicles 25), and music is the only weapon in the last battle.

Write me a story. Or read this story and these lists to figure out if they are like shopping lists or meant to be thought in sentences. The former, I think. But you are at liberty to add a form of the verb to be wherever you need it.

Verse 25, it seems unnecessarily oversimplified to render ובנתיה (from בנה build) and וחצריה (from חצר grass or village or court) as the same phrase in English.

You might note several long verses with no atnach. The rules for creating the music are flexible. No wonder people had trouble explaining them as punctuation.

Nehemiah 11 Fn Min Max Syll
וַיֵּשְׁב֥וּ שָׂרֵֽי־הָעָ֖ם בִּירוּשָׁלִָ֑ם
וּשְׁאָ֣ר הָ֠עָם הִפִּ֨ילוּ גוֹרָל֜וֹת לְהָבִ֣יא ׀ אֶחָ֣ד מִן־הָעֲשָׂרָ֗ה לָשֶׁ֙בֶת֙ בִּֽירוּשָׁלִַ֙ם֙ עִ֣יר הַקֹּ֔דֶשׁ וְתֵ֥שַׁע הַיָּד֖וֹת בֶּעָרִֽים
