Nehemiah 1SCOFIELD REFERENCE NOTES (Old Scofield 1917 Edition) The Book of Nehemiah Fourteen years after the return of Ezra to Jerusalem, Nehemiah led up a company (B.C. 444) and restored the walls and the civil authority. Of those events this book is the record. It is in eight divisions: I. The journey to Jerusalem, 1:1-2:20; II. The building of the wall, 3:1-6:19. III. The census, 7:1-73. IV. The revival, 8:1-11:36. V. The census of the priests and Levites, 12:1-26. VI. Dedication of the wall, 12:27-43. VII. Restoration of the temple worship, 12:44-47. VIII. The legal order restored, 13:1-31. The moral state of the time is disclosed by the prophet Malachi. This book affords many instances of individual faith acting on the written word (e.g. Nehemiah 1:8,9; 13:1). It is the principle of 2Ti 2. The events recorded in Nehemiah cover a period of 11 years (Ussher). Chisleu i.e. December.
