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.

it does help me.

Jah, Yah, and Yahh is G-d in Hebrew. Sera means persists or prevailed in The Hebrew. So The Hebrew meaning of the word Serajah' is G-d persists or G-d prevailed.

this was what i had questions about but you seem to of answered them.

one last question. the names hebrew give their sons and daughters do they name them by meaning or do they just choose names? i am trying to find out for example if Serajah is also a characteristic of God.
