Bible Commentary for Nehemiah 4:19

Wesley's Notes for Nehemiah 4:19


4:17 A Weapon - This is to be taken figuratively; being a proverbial speech, as when they say of a man pretending kindness, he carries bread in one hand, and a stone in another. Thus must we work out our salvation, with the weapons of our warfare in our hands. For in every duty we must expect opposition from our spiritual enemies.

4:18 Sounded - To call the people together, when, and where it was necessary.
