SCOFIELD REFERENCE NOTES (Old Scofield 1917 Edition)

The Book of Nehemiah

Fourteen years after the return of Ezra to Jerusalem, Nehemiah led up a company (B.C. 444) and restored the walls and the civil authority. Of those events this book is the record. It is in eight divisions:

I. The journey to Jerusalem, 1:1-2:20;

II. The building of the wall, 3:1-6:19.

III. The census, 7:1-73.

IV. The revival, 8:1-11:36.

V. The census of the priests and Levites, 12:1-26.

VI. Dedication of the wall, 12:27-43.

VII. Restoration of the temple worship, 12:44-47.

VIII. The legal order restored, 13:1-31.

The moral state of the time is disclosed by the prophet Malachi. This book affords many instances of individual faith acting on the written word (e.g. Nehemiah 1:8,9; 13:1). It is the principle of 2Ti 2.

The events recorded in Nehemiah cover a period of 11 years (Ussher).

Chisleu i.e. December.

Shushan Or, Susa, ancient capital of Persia.

1:10  Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.

1:11  O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name: and prosper, I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king's cupbearer.
