Book of Nehemiah is a companion book to Ezra, and indeed formed
originally one book with it. The chief document upon which it is based
must have been from the hand of Nehemiah himself, consisting, as it
does, mainly if not wholly of the personal memoirs of Nehemiah, another
historical source of first rank which the chronicler seems to have
incorporated complete in his book.
In contents, the book takes up the story of Judea perhaps a dozen years
after Ezra's reformation. It tells of the partial restoration of the
political power of the Jews, the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem,
which made the city once more a mighty fortress.
This important project was undertaken under the leadership of Nehemiah,
a Hebrew who, being high in the confidence of the Persian monarch,
Artaxerxes, received permission to restore Jerusalem. To this purpose
Nehemiah devoted all his great wealth, his energy, his wisdom and his
courage. The work being accomplished, Ezra the priest and Nehemiah the
governor united in an effort to establish fully and forever the
religious faith of the nation on the basis of the priestly law. The
ancient covenant of the Israelites with God was renewed with solemn
ceremony. Then Nehemiah tells of the backsliding of the people, which he
discovered on his second trip to Jerusalem about twelve years later, and
of his struggles to restrain them. The book closes with his personal
prayer to God.
