Today's text from the ESV Study Bible: Nehemiah 8-10.
Boy, a lot has happened since I have been able to post here.
We have been on the road traveling, and our busy schedule has again put me behind in my chronological posting through the Bible.
Since I last posted, Nehemiah has built the wall around Jerusalem, and today we find all of Israel face down before God confessing their sins and making a new promise to follow God's holy law.
However, there is a significant difference between our current scene and one's we witnessed months ago: Isreal is no longer a nation.
We now have Israel again in a covenant relationship with Yahweh, it will be interesting to see how she conducts herself from here on out.
