My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Nehemiah 10

The agreement of the people

About fifty officials signed the agreement, and all the people of Judah agreed to it.

They would not have foreign wives, they would follow the Sabbath day and the Sabbath year, they would make their payments to the temple, and keep up giving the tithes and firstfruits and doing the temple service.

Key verse:
39. We will not neglect the house of our God.

My thoughts:
This agreement is very Pharisaical. It is very centred on keeping the law personally, and exactly. It is focussed on the temple, and how Judah is centred around it, and how they will not neglect it.
