2 Enemy Activity
The four groups had heard rumors: the Jews come back from Babylon and
were beginning construction on the walls of Jerusalem; the breaches in the
wall were being filled in! What was their reaction to this? "Then they were
very worth." There are several words in the Hebrew language for "anger",
but this is the strongest. Their anger was intense and continual.
The hostile reaction to the reconstruction of the defense system in
Jerusalem in Nehemiah's day was due to a perpetual mental attitude
sin complex which included an emotional revolt in the soul of the enemy.
And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem,
and to hinder it (Neh.4:8).
"He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will
not slumber." Psalm 121:3
Heavenly Father, remind me that You are always ready to help us
through life, no matter how difficult the task may seem.
In Christ name I pray
