Wed 090513 pm Neh 9-12

Nehemiah 9
9.3 read from the Book of the Law of the Lord their God for a quarter of the day; for another quarter of it they made confession and worshiped... This would be an interesting format for a church service.
9.6-8 You alone are Lord
9.9-15 You saw the affliction of our fathers
9.16-21 our fathers acted presumptuously and stiffened their neck
9.22-31 you gave them the kingdoms
9.32-37 hardship ... that has come upon us
9.38 all this we make a firm covenant in writing... I have always thought of stuff like this to be gimmicky, but as I think about it after this verse, I can see how it enhances the accountability.

Nehemiah 10
10.1 the names
10.31 boycotting :o)

Nehemiah 11
11.3 chiefs of the people
11.4 sons of Judah
11.7 sons of Benjamin
11.10 priests
11.15 Levites
11.19 gatekeepers
11.22 overseer of the Levites
11.25 the villages

Nehemiah 12
The dedication must have been quite an extravaganza. Two choirs, all the leaders, etc...
