Nehemiah Goes to Jerusalem
2 Early the following spring, in the month of Nisan,[a] during the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes’ reign, I was serving the king his wine. I had never before appeared sad in his presence. 2 So the king asked me, “Why are you looking so sad? You don’t look sick to me. You must be deeply troubled.”

Then I was terrified, 3 but I replied, “Long live the king! How can I not be sad? For the city where my ancestors are buried is in ruins, and the gates have been destroyed by fire.”

4 The king asked, “Well, how can I help you?”

With a prayer to the God of heaven, 5 I replied, “If it please the king, and if you are pleased with me, your servant, send me to Judah to rebuild the city where my ancestors are buried.”

6 The king, with the queen sitting beside him, asked, “How long will you be gone? When will you return?” After I told him how long I would be gone, the king agreed to my request.

7 I also said to the king, “If it please the king, let me have letters addressed to the governors of the province west of the Euphrates River,[b] instructing them to let me travel safely through their territories on my way to Judah. 8 And please give me a letter addressed to Asaph, the manager of the king’s forest, instructing him to give me timber. I will need it to make beams for the gates of the Temple fortress, for the city walls, and for a house for myself.” And the king granted these requests, because the gracious hand of God was on me.

9 When I came to the governors of the province west of the Euphrates River, I delivered the king’s letters to them. The king, I should add, had sent along army officers and horsemen[c] to protect me. 10 But when Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite official heard of my arrival, they were very displeased that someone had come to help the people of Israel.

Nehemiah Inspects Jerusalem’s Wall
11 So I arrived in Jerusalem. Three days later, 12 I slipped out during the night, taking only a few others with me. I had not told anyone about the plans God had put in my heart for Jerusalem. We took no pack animals with us except the donkey I was riding. 13 After dark I went out through the Valley Gate, past the Jackal’s Well,[d] and over to the Dung Gate to inspect the broken walls and burned gates. 14 Then I went to the Fountain Gate and to the King’s Pool, but my donkey couldn’t get through the rubble. 15 So, though it was still dark, I went up the Kidron Valley[e] instead, inspecting the wall before I turned back and entered again at the Valley Gate.

16 The city officials did not know I had been out there or what I was doing, for I had not yet said anything to anyone about my plans. I had not yet spoken to the Jewish leaders—the priests, the nobles, the officials, or anyone else in the administration. 17 But now I said to them, “You know very well what trouble we are in. Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been destroyed by fire. Let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem and end this disgrace!” 18 Then I told them about how the gracious hand of God had been on me, and about my conversation with the king.

They replied at once, “Yes, let’s rebuild the wall!” So they began the good work.

19 But when Sanballat, Tobiah, and Geshem the Arab heard of our plan, they scoffed contemptuously. “What are you doing? Are you rebelling against the king?” they asked.

20 I replied, “The God of heaven will help us succeed. We, his servants, will start rebuilding this wall. But you have no share, legal right, or historic claim in Jerusalem.”

7 thoughts on “Nehemiah 2 Daily Bible Reading with Paul Nison

  1. The book of Isaiah was written 700~ years before the Lord Jesus Christ was born. Read the Bible, pray, and fellowship with other believers.

    (Isaiah 7:14)  Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

    (Matthew 1:23)  Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

    (Isaiah 9:6)  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
    (Isaiah 9:7)  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

    (Psalms 22:15)  My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
    (Psalms 22:16)  For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
    (Psalms 22:17)  I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
    (Psalms 22:18)  They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

    (Zechariah 12:10)  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

    (Psalms 16:10)  For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

    (John 1:1 KJV)  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
    (John 1:2 KJV)  The same was in the beginning with God.
    (John 1:3 KJV)  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
    (John 1:4 KJV)  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
    (John 1:5 KJV)  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

    (John 1:14 KJV)  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

    (John 3:16)  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    (Isaiah 52:13)  Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.
    (Isaiah 52:14)  As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:
    (Isaiah 52:15)  So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.

    (Isaiah 53:1)  Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
    (Isaiah 53:2)  For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
    (Isaiah 53:3)  He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
    (Isaiah 53:4)  Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
    (Isaiah 53:5)  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
    (Isaiah 53:6)  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

    (John 3:5)  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
    (John 3:6)  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
    (John 3:7)  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

    (John 14:6)  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    (Romans 3:23)  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    (Romans 3:24)  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
    (Romans 3:25)  Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
    (Romans 3:26)  To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

    (Romans 6:23)  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    (1 Corinthians 15:1)  Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
    (1 Corinthians 15:2)  By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
    (1 Corinthians 15:3)  For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    (1 Corinthians 15:4)  And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

    (Romans 10:8)  But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
    (Romans 10:9)  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    (Romans 10:10)  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    (Romans 10:11)  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
    (Romans 10:12)  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
    (Romans 10:13)  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    (Ephesians 2:8)  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    (Ephesians 2:9)  Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    (Ephesians 2:10)  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

    (Ephesians 4:4)  There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
    (Ephesians 4:5)  One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
    (Ephesians 4:6)  One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

    (Matthew 28:18)  And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
    (Matthew 28:19)  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
    (Matthew 28:20)  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

    Jesus loves you!

  2. Shabbat Shalom brother. You are so right, The Holy Word is an important connection to Yah and we need to read and absorb it. I know that for me it is an essential part of my faith 🙌🏻🕊. Blessings to you in the name of Yeshua.
