Nehemiah: Rebuilding the Walls

Neh 6:15-16 -- So the wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of Elul, in fifty-two days. When all our enemies heard about this, all the surrounding nations were afraid and lost their self-confidence, because they realized that this work had been done with the help of our God.

I saw a cartoon recently of two men at a party. Each had a drink in his hand, and they were sitting on the stairway talking while the party was going on. (That is where party philosophers like to hold forth).

Working Together  ( Nehemiah 3:1-27 )  Daily Devotion

The men of Jericho built the adjoining section, and Zaccur son of Imri built next to them. (Nehemiah 3:2)

The Need For Each Other  ( Nehemiah 3:28-32 )  Daily Devotion

Next to them, Zadok son of Immer made repairs opposite his house. Next to him, Shemaiah son of Shecaniah, the guard at the East Gate, made repairs. (Nehemiah 3:29)
