Nehemiah 7

CHAPTER 7

Nehemiah Sets Jerusalem in Order

1And it came to pass when [3was built 1the 2wall], and I set the doors, and numbered out the gatekeepers, and the singers, and the Levites, 2and gave charge to Hanani my brother, and to Hananiah the ruler of the palace in Jerusalem, (for he was as [2man 1a true], and one fearing God more than many,) 3that I said to them, [3shall not 4be opened 1The gates 2of Jerusalem] until at the same time the sun rises; and while they are still vigilant let [3be locked 1the 2doors] and be safeguarded! And you set advance guards of ones living in Jerusalem, every man at his own post, and every man before his own house! 4And the city was spacious and great, and the people were few in it, and there were no houses having been built. 5And [2put it 1God] into my heart, and I gathered the important ones, and the rulers, and the people into groups. And I found a scroll of the group, to the ones which ascended at first, and I found things being written in it.
