2.4 So I prayed to the God of heaven. Praying on the fly.
2.8 for the good hand of my God was on me. A good acknoledgement that it was from God when he found favor. I wonder if it is good in the sense that God is good, or in the sense that it was God's good (favorable) not bad (unfavorable) hand.
The God of heaven will make us prosper... Soveriegnty
we His servants will arise and build... Man's responsibility
but you will have no portion or right or claim in Jerusalem. Biblical separation from the world
Now that will preach.
Elishaib the high priest
men of Jericho
Tekoites (but their nobles would not stoop to serve their Lord. Bums!!!)
Melatiah, Jadon, men of Gibeon and Mizpah
Malchijah and Hasshub
Shallum (he and his daughters You go girls!!!)
priests, the men of the surrounding area
Priests, each opposite his own house
the goldsmiths and the merchants
Now that is just a lot of people working on the wall.
4.1 Sanballat... Sticks and stones, etc.
4.6 for the people had a mind to work...
4.15 God had fristrated their plan
4.16-23 Working and watching (guarding)
5.4 We have borrowed money for the kings's tax...
5.6 I was very angry when I heard their outcry...
5.9 Ought you not to walk in the fear of the Lord?
5.15 But I did not do so, because of the fear of the Lord.
6.9 For they all wanted to frighten us, thinking, their hands will drop from the work, and it will not be done.
6.16 they perceived that this work had been accomplished with the help of our God.
