Treasury of Scripture
The whole congregation together was forty and two thousand three hundred and three score,
forty (Though the sum total, both here and in Nehemiah, is equal, namely,
42,360, yet the particulars reckoned up only make
29,818 in Ezra, and
31,089 in Nehemiah; and we find that Nehemiah mentions
1765 persons who are not in Ezra, and Ezra has
494 not mentioned in Nehemiah. This last circumstance, which seems to render all hope of reconciling them impossible, Mr. Alting thinks is the very point by which they can be reconciled; for, if we add Ezra's surplus to the sum in Nehemiah, and Nehemiah's surplus to the number in Ezra, they will both amount to
31,583; which subtracted from
42,360, leaves a deficiency of
10,777, which are not named because they did not belong to the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, or to the priests, but to the other Israelitish tribes.)
