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

Nehemiah 12

The wall is dedicated

A bunch of Levites and priests came to Jerusalem.

When Jerusalem's wall was dedicated, all the Levites came and they had a great celebration. The followed around on top of the wall with Judah's leaders as they sang and played music. Half of the choir went one way, and half the other way around the wall. Then they came to the temple and offered sacrifices. In those days, all of Israel contributed to the temple workers.

Key verse:
43. The sound of rejoicing in Jerusalem could be heard far away.

My thoughts:
Why don't we have these big celebrations anymore? I remember doing march for Jesus as a kid, and in a way it's really cheesy, but it's also for a community to come together and worship God together.
