This chapter is full of many different problems which happened during the time of construction if the Walls around Jerusalem. This time frame took 52 days to complete.

Three different problems arose. ONE:Many landless People were without food. TWO:Landlords were forced to mortgage their land because of the famine. THREE: Borrowing was necessary to pay property tax imposed by the Persistent.

Verses 1-5, debts, interests and bondage.
Verses 6-13, payments of interest abolished.

Wilderness

In my many years with Rediscovery this phrase continue to arise: "may we find the wilderness a home in which to live rather than a paradise to defeat." Athough satan has made god's world a wilderness, let us not forget that the world is still God's and he gave it to man in which to dwell. The more of us who simply live in the land will infect it with the goodness of God.
