Journal Through the Bible: Week 103 Wednesday

Nehemiah chapter 3

The occupations of the men (and women!) working on the wall are amazing. People from all walks of life - from the nobles and goldsmiths on down - worked on the wall. Although reading the list of workers might be considered by some to be as boring as reading genealogies, it is really quite interesting to see how God used so many people to restore the walls of Jerusalem.

Does God issue any commands?

  • God does not speak.

Does God make any promises?

  • God does not speak.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • It isn't a harvest that Nehemiah's workers are working, but it is an important assignment given to the people of God. Jesus calls workers as His laborers, too. It doesn't matter whether we use the analogy of working in the fields or building the Kingdom, our Master told us to work!

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Not that I identified.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
