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

Nehemiah 7

Nehemiah finds the records

Nehemiah set up his brother, Hanani, and commander, Hananiah, over Jerusalem, and told them to keep guard of it.

In trying to fill up the empty city, he found the records of those who had first come from Babylon. About 50,000 people from all towns and families, including the temple workers had come.

In the seventh month...

Key verse:
2. I put in charge of Jerusalem my brother Hanani, along with Hananiah the commander of the citadel, because he was a man of integrity and feared God more than most men do.

My thoughts:
This chapter ends mid-sentence, so that's why my summary ends mid-sentence.

I believe that the next bit of Nehemiah actually comes chronologically before what we've just read, as it is Nehemiah reading old records.
