    Verse 11~Singing has always been a part of worship to Jehovah God. We should sing out praises joyfully.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Like the Israelites of old did, we must continue to praise and give thanks unto the LORD; because he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever.
  • BSP
    Verse 1: The people gathered together to worship Jehovah God. We should do the same today.
  • Lucky Matthew
    Oh God!please stir up our spirit that collectively as a man we may do that which you want us to do.
  • Irene123
    v.13 - " and the noise was heard afar off." We, as His people, are to open our mouths and let the world know of His return and what's coming to the unsaved at that time. To let them know with love and true Godly concern for their everlasting souls; not with 'judgement' and a holier-than-thou attitude. That attitude of GODLY LOVE takes the indwelling of His spirit.

    Do we see ourselves as a type of "Christ's servant" in that all we do, do others see Christ in us? Is what we do daily honoring or glorifying to God? Our body is the temple of the Lord. The first temple was so beautiful
  • Shirl
    what i got out of this, is there were 2 emotions. Those not knowing the old temple, were elated at what they had accomplished. Those old enough to compare the 2 temples, saw where they had defied their God, and what they had lost with the demolishing of the old temple. They probably felt (those elders who remembered), and felt the shame of this, knowing how much better the old temple was.
  • Johnbarasa for verse 1
    I want salvation
  • Segun for verse 12
    I had to quickly look up why the ancient men were crying and when I saw it, I became ashamed of myself for the things happening in the world these days making mockery of the original plan of God for creation. The purpose is defeated except we step up in faith and truism to really follow the original plan of God for mankind.
  • Danny for verse 12
    I read this and this is what came to my sprite if the ancient of old could see how we have made the foundations that where laid which is Jesus for he said the works that I have done these and greater works you will do. we are failing, now we have abominations standing in our holy places telling lies, all for the love of money.
  • Dwight
    They understood that this new temple would never be the same
  • Bill Digby for verse 1
    Ez. 3:1 The section that states they came to Jerusalem "as one Man" reminds me of Ps.133: which states that anywhere God sees unity he blesses. Also did the grant given by Cyrus provide the income they had to give?
  • Andrew
    I love the choosing of the words -they gathered themselves together as one man.

    If the laying of the temple foundation caused them such joy and weeping; how much we, who have Christ laid at the very foundation of our lives. Paul says we are temples of the Holy Spirit! God bless family. Love y'all
