NEHEMIAH CHAPTER 7 – SAFETY, REPOPULATION AND GENEALOGY REHEARSED

July 15, 2017

This blog will be short due to the content of chapter 7, which mainly rehearses the genealogy of the inhabitants of Jerusalem as revealed in Ezra 2.

With the work of the walls completed and his departure to Shushan imminent the safety and repopulation of the city concerned Nehemiah. Therefore, before he leaves Nehemiah places Hanani and Hananiah men of integrity who fears God in charge of the city, he establishes rules for opening and closing the city gates, and he appoints sentinels for the evening watches who will guard the city and their properties. Additionally, in a desire to fill the city with inhabitants Nehemiah decides to take a census of the Jews, but before he began, he found the register recorded by Ezra with the data he desired. Thus, verses 5-72 repeats the genealogical record of the returning Jews that was first recorded under the tenure of Zerubbabel, and this chapter happily ends with the people dwelling in their assigned cities.

The gleaning points that I have received from this chapter are:

  1. For continued success place men with integrity in position.
  2. The requirements for leadership are faithfulness and fear of God.
  3. Walls without watchmen are a weak defense.
  4. Be prepared for a surprise attack from the enemy.
  5. Keep a secure record of family statistics; someone may need it in the future.
  6. Leaders should be seen giving.
  7. Everyone has a place of assignment.
  8. When you are not in your assigned place, proper growth is hindered.
