Bible Marginalia Series- #146
Nehemiah encouraging the people in the
rebuilding of the walls
around the city of Jerusalem.
A God- sized feat.
In 52 days.
The people rebuilt the section
of the wall right in front
of their homes and businesses.
In their own neighborhoods.
They were tasked to be in
charge of just that section.
The wall is finished.
Nehemiah counts the gifts among the people.
Who is here?
Then Ezra is called to read the law.
"And the ears of all the people
were attentive to the Book of the Law."
The day is Holy.
For all the people wept
as they heard the words of the Law.
"And do not be grieved,
for the JOY of the Lord is your strength."
The people realized how disobedient
they had been and they wept and mourned.
But they were told- rejoice!
