Now this is the copy of the letter that the king Artaxerxes gave to Ezra the priest, the scribe; the scribe of the matters pertaining to the commandments of Yahweh and his statutes to Israel: Bible

“of the matters pertaining to the commandments of Yahweh.” The Hebrew is more literally, “even a scribe of the words of the commandments of Yahweh,” but the word “words,” dabar, is commonly used of “matters” or “things,” and the genitive phrase “of the commandments” in this context means “pertaining to the commandments” or “concerning the commandments.”
