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, Nehemiah 1:1-2;

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

III. The census, Nehemiah 7:1-73.

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

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

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

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

VIII. The legal order restored, Nehemiah 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; Nehemiah 1:9; Nehemiah 13:1). It is the principle of 2 Timothy 2:0.

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

Chisleu i.e. December.
