Search The Scriptures —Study 3 — Nehemiah 3

Study 3  From the Book of Philippians is: Nehemiah 3

  1. Contrast the busy scenes of this chapter with the picture of the walls and gates lying desolate, broken and burned, in 2:13, 14. What brought about the change? (Examine, if possible, a plan of the city as this time.)
  2. Note how all classes in the city took part in the work, each being assigned his special place and task. What may we learn from this chapter of the value of (a) thorough organization, and (b) willing co-operation on the part of all?

Notes

  1. Verse 5. The word ‘Lord’ should probably be ‘lord’, the reference being to Nehemiah. For the metaphor see Je. 27:12.
  2. The century Bible divides the chapter as follows: Verses 1-5, the north and north – west wall; verses 6-12, the west, the west wall; verses 13, 14, the south wall and gates; verses 15-27, the south-east wall and gates; verses 28-32, the north-east wall.
