1 The words of Nehemiah the sonne of Hachaliah. And it came to passe in the moneth Chisleu, in the twentieth yeere, as I was in Shushan the palace;

2 That Hanani, one of my brethren came, he and certaine men of Iudah, and I asked them concerning the Iewes that had escaped, which were left of the captiuitie, and concerning Ierusalem.

3 And they said vnto me, The remnant that are left of the captiuitie there in the prouince, are in great affliction and reproch: the wall of Ierusalem also is broken downe, and the gates thereof are burnt with fire.

4 And it came to passe when I heard these words, that I sate downe and wept, and mourned certaine dayes, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heauen,

5 And said, I beseech thee, O Lord God of heauen, the great and terrible God, that keepeth couenant and mercie for them that loue him, and obserue his commandements:

6 Let thine eare now be attentiue, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest heare the prayer of thy seruant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy seruants, and confesse the sinnes of the children of Israel, which wee haue sinned against thee: both I, and my fathers house haue sinned.

7 We haue dealt very corruptly against thee, and haue not kept the commandements, nor the statutes, nor the iudgements, which thou commandedst thy seruant Moses.

8 Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy seruant Moses, saying, If yee transgresse, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:

9 But if ye turne vnto me, and keepe my commandements, and doe them: though there were of you cast out vnto the vttermost part of the heauen, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them vnto the place that I haue chosen, to set my Name there.

10 Now these are thy seruants, and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.

11 O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine eare be attentiue to the prayer of thy seruant, and to the prayer of thy seruants, who desire to feare thy name: and prosper, I pray thee, thy seruant this day, and grant him mercie in the sight of this man. For I was the kings cup-bearer.

Nehemiah griefs over his destroyed city and he gets the desire to rebuiled the fallen wall he seeks for forgiveness from GOD he repents for his sins and the sins of all Isralites.He realises that its the unholiness that has made them to be scattered and i think thats the best thing we should learn to ask for forgiveness first to GOD and to stay a clean way of life

Nehemiah is a great intercessor. And we need such people in a country like Nigeria

The power of prayer when dealing with men. How powerful is that. God want 's to give his children favor befor our leaders. Any with curupt leadership all around us. God is all powerful and sovereign over all. Nothing happen without going though his hands first. How great is our God savior. We as his children can worship Him from now and forever and ever. "WoW " We can stand on His word for eternity. His word never changes. As we go through true sanctificaion and become more Christ like. praise God

verse 5 reminds us that God always keeps his covenants unlike us who make promises to God when we are in trouble but as soon as he delivers us, we forget all about our pledge to Him.


Olga Villarreal's Nehemiah Chapter 1 comment on 5/12/2015, 9:55am...

chap.1:9 where it states that even if jews are cast out into outer-most ends of heaven,the Lord will bring them back. It has been on my mind for a couple of days. Is it possible if they 're sending a non-return couple to Mars,maybe its not such an impossibility. I 've been pondering that.


Yvette's Nehemiah Chapter 1 comment on 4/29/2015, 7:22pm...

Nehemiah realize that the people were loosing hope. Things were going on that was tearing the people down. Leaders weren't loving as they should been. They were divided just like the walls of Jerusalem. But Nehemiah knew that God was and is able to hear and answer his prayer and restore his people because of his love and concern ....this is so true today in our churches.


Guerline Robuste's Nehemiah Chapter 1 comment on 4/26/2015, 11:27am...

Nehemiah as a characteristic of God that he recognized God for who he his,Nehemiah begin recognising the greatness and the grandeur of God.
