Nehemiah 6-9


Sanballat and others invite Nehemiah to the plains of Ono, with the inetention of killing him. Sanballat spreads a rumour that Nehemiah is planning to rebel against Persia and become king. Shemiah, a false prophet sent by Sanballat, unsiuccessfully urges Nehemiah to take refuge in the temple. The wall is completed in 52 days, despite some who were friends with the enemy Tobiah. Tobiah sends threatening letters.


Nehemiah gives orders to guard Jerusalem. A list is given of the leaders, priests, Levites, singers and animals who returned from Babylon.


Ezra reads the law to the Jews in Jerusalem, with teachers on hand to help explain to the people. The Jews worship and weep. The Jews observe the Feast of Tabernacles, not done since the days of Joshua.


The Jews gather, separate themselves from foreigners, fast, repent, read law, and hear a summary of Israel’s history and deliverance from Egypt. A covenant is made.
