With the rebuilding completed, the people are resettled, some in the city of Jerusalem, and others in various cities. God moves His people around and sets the boundaries of their dwelling (Acts 17:26).

But all is not well. People are unable to follow the Law; it is an impossibilty which is why we need a Savior. Yet, when the people sinned, Nehemiah did not mess around. He beat them and cursed them for marrying pagan women and for their children not knowing the “language of Judah.”

We don’t beat people, but we in the Church today should be aware of sin in our midst and deal with it. The New Testament instructs us to “purge, avoid, and even deliever over to Satan” the one who is in the church and is sexually immoral among other sins (1 Corinthians 5:1-13).

The Psalm is a beautiful Psalm of rejoicing for,

“The LORD has done great things for us, and we are glad.”

Read Nehemiah 11:1 – 13:31 and Psalm 126
