The surrounding walls which would  protect Jerusalem were rebuilt; however, as previously stated in chapter seven, Jerusalem was large, spacious, and barely occupied. So, to assist in the reestablishment of Jerusalem and to join the political and religious leaders that were dwelling there it was decided by the casting of lots which families (with the percentage being one in every ten) would come and live within the city. Also, others made a sacrifice and volunteered to join this group

The list of families that are recorded in this chapter is basically the same as found in 1 Chronicles 9:2-17. Plus, in this chapter, the inhabitants of the countryside are listed by their villages.

The gleaning points that I received from this chapter are:

  1. People are needed to preserve and guard a city.
  2. There are people that will sacrifice themselves for the interest and well-being of others.
  3. Everyone has an assigned location and a purpose.
