Wesley's Notes for Nehemiah 5:17


5:17 Rulers - Not only Jews of the inferior sort, for whom meaner provisions might suffice, but also their rulers, for whom better provision was fit; who resorted to him upon all occasions, to give him notice of the enemies designs; or to receive his orders.


Discussion for Nehemiah 5

  • A disciple
    "Also I said, It is not good that ye do: ought ye not to walk in the fear of our God because of the reproach of the heathen our enemies?" With regard for the practicality of the Apostles' statement, That we not bring the Gentile Believers under bondage to be circumcised and follow the ordinances of Moses; IT DOES NOT somehow preclude the good use of the Law as a teacher of love for God and men.
  • Ahuwa Chiamaka
    God is always merciful to us each time we help ourselves in moving close to God
  • Rick
    Praise the Lord for all His Blessings including His Chastisements. According to the scripture he chastises those that He loves and He knows how to give the better best gifts unto His Children. Even in bondage Nehemiah was an extremely blessed man. In fact Nehemiah was in a cushy position of blessing as the Kings Cupbearer prior to taking this gutsy step of faith.
  • Isabella
    Wow its sick how they took advantage of one another. Nehemiah is awesome for laying down the law😊
  • Beverly McCoy
    And the same man had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy Acts 2:19
  • it made me to discover that believers can remind God the good works they have done in His name even though He sees and knows everything
