In this Chapter of Nehemiah we will read about all of those who by Faith chose to follow all of what The Torah Teaches. The Laws, that were neglected and they gave their pledge to walk in them and uphold all of them. The Spirit of Repentance(Teshuvah) follows with the resolve of Nehemiah The Governor, Zedekiah and The People, to Change their old ways of neglect, and Renew their Spiritual Connection to The Holy Land.

First there is a list of 83 signatories of The Covenant of Faith(The Bris Amanah) with a seal. The Temple tax is established as one-third shekel because of the economy, down from Exodus 20:13-14 of one-half shekel, which was the same later is in New Testament Times.

It brings up The Oath, Intermarriage and The Sabbath. The Mitzvos, The Wood Offerings, The Firstborn, The First of Your Dough(Challah) and The First Fruits(Terumah) and Tithing.

Brother Beemanlee, Thank you

Brother Beemanlee,

Thank you so much for your timely response and the link to the threads on the studies on "the Minor Prophet" and especially "Nehemiah". I’m personally doing a private study on the book of Nehemiah when I stumble on this thread, hence my quest for the whole beginning. I believe this two study threads will deepen my knowledge in this quest. I'm already studying Nehemiah from Chapter one and the thread have been a good study guide.

I agree with you on the need to inquire into the real meaning of the names of these God's people whose work we are studying today.

Thanks so much for the good work. God bless.
