Nehemiah 10* The covenant, Those who signed it. (1-31) Their engagement tosacred rites. (32-39)1-31 Conversion is separating from the course and custom ofthis world, devoting ourselves to the conduct directed by theword of God. When we bind ourselves to do the commandments ofGod, it is to do all his commandments, and to look to him as theLord, and our Lord. 32-39 Having covenanted against the sins of which they had beenguilty, they obliged themselves to observe the duties they hadneglected. We must not only cease to do evil, but learn to dowell. Let not any people expect the blessing of God, unless theykeep up public worship. It is likely to go well with our houses,when care is taken that the work of God's house goes on well.When every one helps, and every one gives, though but little,toward a good work, the whole will come to be a large sum. Wemust do what we can in works of piety and charity; and whateverstate we are placed in, cheerfully perform our duty to God,which will be the surest way to ease and liberty. As theordinances of God are the appointed means of support to oursouls, the believer will not grudge the expense; yet most peopleleave their souls to starve.
