“worship.” The Hebrew word translated “worship,” shachah (#07812 שָׁחָה), is the same Hebrew word as “bow down.” Thus, this could be translated, “the army of heaven bows down to you.” [For more on bowing down, see commentary on 1 Chron. 29:20].

Neh 9:16

“and did not listen to your commands.” In a context like this, the word “listen” can also be used idiomatically and have the meaning “obey.” Some scholars refer to this as the “pregnant sense” of the word. In this verse it has the meaning “listen to and obey.” Many Hebrew words are used with an idiomatic or pregnant sense (see commentary on Luke 23:42).
